In the dog house!
Saying for the day: Look before you leap or at least before you get a dog.
It is Sunday , a day of rest, but there will be no rest for the Linna household.
We are trying to get everything ready to go on Tuesday.
We have clothes to pack, and hospital type stuff.
We have calls, to cancel things, that have to be made.
We have Christmas ornaments we need to take .
We have enough stuff to fill the van twice.
In addition we have to bring down from the attic everything that is there.
One thing after another.
In the midst of all of this I did a very stupid thing.
I was raised with a purebred English Springer Spaniel.
Yesterday my sister called and I had a chance to get one that was housebroken and only two years old.
I jumped at the chance.
Wrong move John.
My wife is now ready to put me out on the street oxygen tubes and all.
She is of course right but its all my sister’s fault.
If she hadn’t told me I wouldn’t have jumped.
Well the dog isn’t really mine its going to Peter and family and I get it only if they don’t want it.
My wife is sure I will get it.
She always looks for the black cloud behind the silver lining.
If everything works my granddaughter and grandson have a new dog.
It is trainable.
It is a Springer.
I called Peter before I jumped.
They had a family gathering and decided to try it.
My granddaughter is all excited.
If I don’t blog tomorrow its because there is no computer in the doghouse.
News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my garage where the trains still run and a dragon flys into garages– Ernie has been watching Mrs. Trumble’s garage. He swears he didn’t sleep Friday night but watched Mrs. Trumble’s garage all night. The garage door never opened. Mrs. Trumble left her truck outside. He is sure there is a dead dragon in the garage. When Mrs. Trumble went to town yesterday he went over to peek in the garage but there was no window in t he garage door. There is a window on the side but it is too high and Ernie would have to drag something over to stand on. He was afraid he would get caught and be arrested as a peeping Tom. Soon after Mrs. Trumble came home.
In the afternoon Tommy came with his big red wagon. He carried a bag of groceries inside and stayed for an hour. Before he went in Ernie asked him to try to get a peek in the garage to see if there was a dead dragon there. When he came out Ernie stopped him and asked if he had had a chance to look in the garage. He said that he told Mrs. Trumble that he heard she shot the dragon and it was in her garage . She took him out to the garage and showed him there was no dragon.
Poor Ernie, he was so sure it was there. One hopes he gets some sleep tonight. He can’t watch that garage forever.
Nancy says that one by one the hunters are coming back. The ones that took their sons to hunting camp have to be back by tonight because there is school tomorrow. Some are stoping for coffee so she is getting to hear some hunting stories. One hunter claimed that a deer charged him and only by hitting it right between the eyes with the butt of his gun was he saved from sure destruction. The deer wobbled off while the hunter tried to fire the gun but wacking the deer had done something to the firing mechanism .
Link for the day: Blogaway-Remember to put the words Dr. John in the comment to get those youthful JCPOINTS. Check your totals HERE.
My ister showed up early with the dog. It is really cute. But it has no interest in me and has fallen in love with Betty. If she leaves the room he whines. It must be hard for him to have left a house with two active kids to live with us old folk. He can catch a ball in the air. I may get thrown out of the procrastinator's club. By tommorrow I will have all the certificates, globes. cups , and prizes sent out. One cup will be left because I don't have the address for it yet. Well I need a breathing treatment.
