    Good morning everyone. One of our favorite patriotic songs! Love that foto of Horowitz, his Gene Simmons like tongue and especially the bow tie.
    Loved last nights discussions and strollers talk.
    Happy Independence Day!

    Such a kerfuffle about the stroller. If you read the details (probably not) you will see my stroller holds up to 35 pounds. It’s fine for Mr. Big but I’m afraid the rest of you weigh too much. Including Rio.

    Mom puts me in my harness, plops me in the stroller, and then hooks me up to the inside leash. When we’re outside, she closes the screen too.

    Sadie getting a bath at a chain pet store. If pressure wash opens up her scabs (even tho she is healed,) I will be called and will be asked to pick up a wet dog. I have my phone on but fingers crossed.

    I have noticed with my age the first to go has been my math skills. For instance it is hard for me to reduce a recipe or do even basic math in my head. This year I noticed that my grammar and punctuation skills are uncertain. They have been the very basis of my life and work. Sniff. What will go next?

    Three different sets of short-time visitors arriving over the next couple of weeks. I don’t know most of them. One Unitarian arriving tonight for one night and then will return for two more nights on the 11th. One FBX person is having knee surgery and needs a place to stay for a few days. She was referred to me by my best friend. Then a couple I know from a hiking trip will stay with me after their Alaska tour concludes. whew. It always comes in clumps. I’ve been cleaning hard. I need more guests to come scattered throughout the year. Consider this an invite!

    Hobbitz, the DDD’s daughter and 2 g-sons will be here next week. They will be the first official visitors to the Hounds Hostel. Mom has never met the youngest g-son. Should be interesting.

    Speech!…We here watched the movie “The Post” this afternoon. It was very appropriate given the today’s date and the topic of free speech…snort!…What a great story! My friend was a lil pup when all this happened so it is very interesting and very heartfelt. She was alert and interested when Watergate emerged from the bogs of hell. She did listen and watch all that…grumple!…Too bad the lying and deceiving in politics still goes on n’ on n’ on. Don’t get me started about the Media….cripes!gasp!…bah!
