For Laurie

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

You know

it's been a while since you blogged when your blogging account doesn't remember you.

I haven't blogged as I have had nothing to blog about, really. I went to Oregon - amazing!

Millie and I had a fabulous time!

Next on my list is Seattle. Even though it's a work trip and not vacation, I still won't have to get up at 530 every morning, so it will seem like a vacation!! Plus, I get to see Alida and Michaela, and that's the best part!!

The condo is back on the market, the buyer backed out. I wasn't surprised, short sales are a bitch and I don't think they really knew what they were in for. They started getting antsy, I think they thought short sale meant short time. C'est la vie! I think we are having another open house this weekend. I am buying vodka.

The buyer backed out

and my condo is back on the market. I figured they would, only crazy people are willing to go through the headache of buying a short sale.

I had a fantabulous trip to Oregon. I miss hanging out with KA and it's hard to believe we have been friends for 15 years. Time flies.

Seeing Millie playing with her dog makes me realize that Millie needs a friend and Millie really needs a yard. The latter probably won't happen, given that I live in CA, but the former will definitely happen. I will just have to dog hunt with her in mind, she needs a specific kind of personality in order for this to work.

We made jewelry while I was there, always fun, I haven't done that since I left FL in '98.

I also have to say, given a chance to move to OR, I would go tomorrow. GORGEOUS!!!! I think my next road trip will be to WA and BC. I love the Pacific Northwest.

First Creepy

then Facebook, now

Slowly but surely, TPTB are cutting me off from my online world. I won't really miss, yeah, I will. I love the crazies. I admit it.

Slowly, but surely my time wasters are being taken away from me. I don't understand it, I work hard(ish), give me my online reading!!!

This is why I need a field job, I am not good at utilizing my time wisely when I am chained to a desk.


I am headed to Oregon tomorrow morning. Have a good week!!
