OK, even though I have strep throat I have a celebratory thing to share.

I was going thru the channels of trying to get into my Dr, and got an appt for 3pm. Not the best time for me because the kids get home around 3:30, but I took it. I thought I'd just check out the local Medicenters to see if I could get seen more quickly. The first one I tried had +1.5 hour wait. No thanks. Then I cruised up to the Mall and lo and behold, not only was there no wait, I got right in...the doctor saw me within about a minute and I left a few moments after that. I bet I wasn't there 10 minutes! And now I have antibiotics and a gargle so I don't feel like I'm swallowing knives anymore!

WOOHOO!!

His name is Max and he'll be 4 months old on the 23rd and he's a full blooded Boston Terrier. He's only been with us for 6 hours now and he's already captured my heart.
Sizz, Max is real a cutie! I'm a softie on the orphans.... 6 of my 10 pets were adopted. DH has banned me from the "shelter day" at the pet store.
But they truly are the best pets... they seem to know how lucky they are.

On the charity thing, I discovered PetSmart has "Recycle for Life." PetSmart Charities I send in old ink cartridges ( they take old cell phones, too) and the money goes to animals instead of the office stores. They have the postage-paid envelopes right at the checkout.

Good for you both! Congratulations. You have many years ahead. Just think, you'll only be 66 when you celebrate your 50th anniversary. Pretty young.

Buck and I have been together for just over 30 years and are looking forward to at least 30 more. We'll be older than dirt by the time we celebrate our 50th. Maybe we'll have matching rockers.

We are having Savannah's birthday party tomorrow. It's a celebration for us because, 7 years ago this Sunday, we didn't know if she would make it or not.

Happy anniversary TG!!
