All Alone Ramblings

Wow what is that I hear...........? Nothing! Yes nothing! It is just me here for the first time in I can not remember when.

Buddy is at Lake Harriet Vet having a dental. So he is gone for the day. Nothing terribly wrong with his teeth. He is 5 1/2 and never had his teeth cleaned so I thought it was time. I am looking for a dentist that will totally put me under for my trip to the drill master.

Walker is on his School of Rock tour for two weeks. The group is playing their first concert today in Houston. Rock On! They are scheduled to play Station 4 in St Paul on the 22nd. Cant't wait.

We are between foster dogs right now. Pet Haven just took in 7 new dogs so I wanted to make sure they all stay put before taking in a new dog. I did transport one of our recent intakes, Chester, today to Auntie Ruth's-one of our boarding partners. He is a sweet boy about 5 years old and a good size-40lbs.

Our next boarding guest Gracie arrives tomorrow morning. Buddy will be happy to have a playmate again.

So it is just me today doing whatever I want to do or need to do without dogs. Wonder what the day will bring? I know it is way too quiet around here.

Happy 4th of July!

Today I am remembering so many past 4th of July parties at our family cabin on the Missouri river in Nebraska. Mom and dad would work for days before the party to clean, cook, and clear the beach for volleyball, swimming, and boating.

They loved every minute of their time there.

There would be 50-100 guests come to take part in the festivities and mom's 'killer punch'. Dad would pull skiers for hours until everyone had their turn. Now my brother Andy has taken dad's place at the helm.

Mom still enjoys the parties but now she can sit back and relax while other do all the work. Granddaughter Michelle drove all the way from Minnesota to join in the fun.

I can feel my dad close by whenever I am at the cabin. I know he is watching down on us and loving that the family continues to gather at the river.

This year I will be watching Walker play music at the Taste of Minnesota. Quite a ways from Nebraska but once again on the banks of a river.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
