It was another great evening with Scottie friends before Mom’s Tuesday tests. Leah McIntosh and Barbara Brandt came by to see us.
We are helping Leah open the presents Mom got her and Mac.
She gave us treats, toys and these wonderful Christmas ornaments by Manna Nelson. They have snowmen, Scottie and our names on them. Love!
Barbara Brandt got some presents too.
Mom received some more lovely ornaments for our Scottie tree, socks and a tote that is in another pic. Sorry. It’s been just like Christmas.
Here are the three of them at Pappadeaux…Steve and Dad not pictured. LOL. Mom said it was another fab evening. Mom had her tests Tues. We came home on Wednesday since Dr. Komaki was out-of-town. Usually Mom sees her the next day for results but this time we have to wait. We’ll let you know though.
8 hrs. to home. ~ Indy and Lucy
This was our first road trip in the new car. Mom was diagnosed and treated for lung cancer in 2009 so now she makes a yearly trip to MD Anderson in Houston, Texas for a medical checkup. We usually don’t go through Dallas but we did this year so we could see our friends, Diane and DD Lewis.
Diane and DD came to our hotel to visit so we didn’t see Duff but she brought us some great presents: a Christmas ornament for Mom,
some Jalapeno Peach Jelly that Mom adores, nerf balls and treats for us and a kangaroo in honor of our Friends Mark and Wendy from Australia.
We played with kanga while the pawrents went to dinner. Mom said it was a great evening. Thanks for all, Diane and DD.
This is Mom and Dad. ~ Indy and Lucy
There was this little bunny who has been around our yard since spring. There were originally two that Mom knows of but the other was earlier dispatched. Therefore Mom was overprotective of this one. The yard was always cleared before we went out especially since the bunny had decided to live under our front porch. In my defense, I will say that the bunny did crazy things all summer long. It would zoom across the yard even when we were out there. It would run from its protected area under the porch to outside the fence. Keep in mind that we have a larger fenced back yard where the bun could have lived. We seldom go back there. But noooooo.
So Tuesday evening, Dad ran bunny out from under the porch. If bunny was not removed, I have a tendency to bark instead of doing my business and Mom was convinced the barking made bunny do crazy stuff. Anyway Bunny ran back in one time too many. 😦
Bunny is now hopping along the bunny trail.
I was a little terror of a pup but I did attend three levels of obedience school and graduated with honors.
The pawrents planned to home school Sister but it didn’t happen. I tell them lots of peeps go back to school later. Why not dogs? I don’t believe that old dog/new tricks stuff. There might be hope for her yet. ~ Indy
The TV had many flashbacks this weekend of late August 2005 when Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf coast of the United States. New Orleans and coastal Mississippi were hit particularly hard. The town of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi was battered by a 30 foot surge leveling beachfront neighborhoods. It was in one of these neighborhoods that Nikki Moon, innkeeper of the Bay Town Inn, resided with her Scottie Maddie. With the inn collapsing around her, Nikki, Maddie and two others escaped to a nearby oak tree. For several hours, while the storm raged around them, Nikki with Maddie tucked under her along with the others, clung to what is now known as the Angel Tree.
Niki rebuilt the Bay Town Inn; once again terriers are in residence but the old oak died so a local artist carved it into angels. It stands across from the inn, a sentinel on the shore.
Mom and I loved this story. Hope you did too. ~ Lucy
