Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Leaving on a jet plane....
Hello, and Goodbye.
Around 530a.m., tomorrow, this Grammy will head out for the Indy airport and fly down to Durham, North Carolina. There, waiting for her cheesy broccoli soup at Panera Bread, will be little Emmy and her mama, April. We're having a girls lunch out, to chat each other up, and catch up. We haven't seen each other since they were in Indiana last Labor Day. We're overdue. I can't wait!
The hard part will be the trip down. This Grammy hates to fly and has not done so in twelve years. Pre-9/11. It will take longer to get to the airport in Indy then the non-stop flight to N.C. It's just a short visit since I'm a working girl now. A friend will drop me off and pick me up Sunday night. (She's a saint to do this.)
This is also the first time that Addie, our female corgi, will be without her mama. I've never left her before. In the past, she has made the roadtrip with me to NC. My MIL will come and stay with the doggies at night, and let them out during the day. She lives right across the alley from us, so thankfully, a familiar face, Addie will see.
Jim has been training another driver this week, so I'm praying he'll make it back to rub tummies, and play ball with the furkids. Their tummies, not mine.
( I sort of resent never getting my tummy rubbed.....but, that's a whole different story!) He hee!
