Good morning. Yikes! It's only mid morning and temps are already in the mid 80's, and headed for the low 90's. I am positively wilting! Thank goodness for the air conditioning.
Well, last evening, daughter Deanne and I went to our class on Basic Firearm Safety. There was quite a good mix of folks in the class, men and women, young and old. The instructor was very knowledgeable, and the class was very educational.
Towards the end of the class, we all had a chance to hold and properly unload a revolver, a rifle and a shotgun. This was very enlightening, and at the end of the class everyone received a "Basic Firearms Safety Certificate." The next class will be this coming Sunday where we will learn more about how to properly handle and shoot a gun. This should be another interesting and educational day.
To change the subject, did you know that there are laws as to how long you can legally leave your car engine running? In Massachusetts, a car cannot be idling more than five minutes unless it is being serviced or it is being used to deliver or accept goods where engine assisted power is necessary. If someone is caught, they can be levied with a $100 fine for the first offense and up to $500 for subsequent offenses. Hmmm, I don't think I ever heard of anyone being fined for this offense, have you? (click on the image to see a bigger view)
As you all know, Pogo has developed an awful itch, and it has been driving him crazy. Me too, for that matter. I give him special baths, Benedryl and an antiobiotic, but we haven't been able to lose the itch. I may have to take him back to the doctor for more tests. The poor little guy gets so frustrated hearing me constantly telling him to "stop that" scratching.
There is another medicine that we can try, but it is a pill that you have to push down the doggie's throat and I can't do that. The medicine does not come in liquid form, so I think I'll ask the doctor if it can be given by shot. Pogo wouldn't be too happy, but we really do need to get rid of the cause of the itch.
Here's a photo of Pogo grabbing a little nap after taking some Benedryl. Gosh, I feel so bad for him. He doesn't like the medicines, and can't understand why I keep giving it to him. He does spit some of the medicine out which. of course, makes him quite sticky. But then, that's a good reason for a nice cooling bath and a rub down with a big fluffy towel.
Today I have a new quick page for you. This one features a very happy Lola, who is practicing her dance steps with a friend. I hope you can use it.

Well, that's my news for this morning. I got a late start today, and now I need to get a few things done around the house. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
