Hi Marjorie, the dog looks very happy, I am sure he must be glad to have a nice bed to sit in instead of a shed, some people seem to think they can treat dogs cats and any other animal how they please, starving them and mistreating them.We seem to acquire our animals in a similar way they are either lost or just dumped.
I hope you will have lots of happy hours with your new addition, what is the dogs name?. I am sure we will see many more photos of this lovely dog. Ann.

Hi marjorie, how is the ankle?, hope it is good for your holiday, looking forward to some great photos of your holiday. How is the dog?, our dog has to have a growth removed from his mouth on Tuesday, I am not looking forward to taking him, he is deaf and blind among other things, but not in pain so that is good.
Well have a great holiday Marjorie, catch you later Ann.

How about this for a Holiday, not a bad idea.No Nursing Home for Me

About 2 years ago my wife and I were on a cruise through the western Mediterranean aboard a Princess liner. At dinner we noticed an elderly lady sitting alone along the rail of the grand stairway in the main dining room. I also noticed that all the staff, ships officers, waiters, busboys, etc., all seemed very familiar with this lady. I asked our waiter who the lady was, expecting to be told that she owned the line,but he said he only knew that she had been on board for the last four cruises, back-to-back.

As we left the dining room one evening I caught her eye and stopped to say hello. We chatted and I said, "I understand you've been on this ship for the last four cruises". She replied, "Yes, that's true." I stated, "I don't understand" and she replied, without a pause, "It's cheaper than a nursing home".

So, there will be no nursing home in my future. When I get old and feeble, I am going to get on a Princess Cruise Ship. The average cost for a nursing home is $200 per day. I have checked on reservations on a Princess and I can get a long term discount and senior discount price of $135 per day. That leaves $65 a day for:

1. Gratuities which will only be $10 per day.

2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can waddle to the restaurant, or I can have room service (which means I can have breakfast-in-bed every day of the week).

3. Princess has as many as three swimming pools, a workout room, free washers and dryers, and shows every night.

4. They have free toothpaste and razors, and free soap and shampoo.

5. They will even treat you like a customer, not a patient. An extra $5 worth of tips will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.

6. I will get to meet new people every 7 or 14 days.

7. T.V. broken? Light bulb need changing? Need to have the mattress replaced? No Problem! They will fix everything and apologize for your inconvenience.

8. Clean sheets and towels every day, and you don't even have to ask for them.

9. If you fall in the nursing home and break a hip you are on Medicare; if you fall and break a hip on the Princess ship they will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.


Now hold on for the best! Do you want to see South America, the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, or name where you want to go?

Princess will have a ship ready to go. So don't look for me in a nursing home, just call shore to ship.

ps: And don't forget, when you die, they just dump you over the side -- at no charge.

Hi Marjorie, How was your holiday?, hope you had a great time and your ankle held up OK. Looking forward to some great pics of your holiday. My Grandson is taking lots for me. He is now in England and then goes to France before coming home he had his 16th Birthday on the plane going over to Scotland. Catch you later Ann.
