a few things

Before I left for SD, I had meant to write about a couple of things that had happened recently.
I met a truly wonderful Canadian widow, Debbie, who is still in the early stages of widowhood. She and her sweet boys came to visit us on the island after a very hard task. The kids LOVED her boys and have been asking when they'll come visit again!! Wicked sense of humour that lady has!!!

After:
Freckles got a haircut! His summer haircut is in full swing (that's a mohawk and a poodle tail he's sportin'). Although he loves the cool air touching his skin and I love the lack of dog hair swirling around my ankles throughout the house, he is embarassing to take out in public.
Lucy hatched out four little eggs!!! No incubator or brooder for Freckles to break into and cause chickicide...Let see if it works better having a mama chicken to guard her little 'uns.
We had a visit from Jeff's son, Glenn. Since Jeff's death, he has been a real support for us and has really helped out with firewood, etc. I am so proud that I have been able to see him grow into such a good man!
And this picture is just for fun......

I think Freckles would be the coolest (in all senses of the word) dog on any block with that haircut. It's great!

And fingers crossed for the chicks.

Thanks for the kind words, Jackie! We had an awesome time with you three too! It was so great to spend time with you, knowing that you just "get it". What a rare and valuable gift. We'll be home on Sunday and the boys are already planning Briar's car package - they haven't forgotten! I'm so glad you had a great time at the conference! I'm already looking forward to next year. I'll be in touch when we get home and thanks again for sharing Olivia's birthday with us!
