homecoming


He's home.


Doesn't even have a lampshade collar, either, and he's leaving his bandaged leg completely alone. He's been supplied with a chew toy so large he's afraid of it, and a pound of steak all cubed up just for him. Add in the pain pills, and he's a pretty happy hound dog.


I'm not bad, either. I have a fire going in the fireplace, it's been raining off and on all day, and Surfer Dude's team won their first soccer game of the season today. (The rain started as soon as we stood up at the end of the game.) I'm sitting on my sofa wrapped up in my favorite quilt, with a well-medicated dog laying next to me, I've just fired up my second Hugh Grant DVD of the night, I'm starting to knit a new hat for myself...and I'm off for the next three days.


Can I tell you how badly I needed this night?

TWO Hugh Grants? Well, I suppose we can allow it, under the circumstances.

Sounds like heaven.

Silly me, I was signed in as my sister. So I will repeat myself.

You can tell us as much as you like. We KNOW how badly you needed it.
Glad your baby is home and you can cuddle again.

Wow - things turning around. Enjoy your break and your Hugh Grant. As I'm English I have no idea what that's about - at all, but if he rings your bells - atta girl. LOL

You ever notice that all the worrying in the world doesn't change the outcome?

You really really need to learn how to stop that. Look at how content you are now! Isn't it much nicer?

Not giving you heck at all RC - just saying. I do exactly the same damn thing!

So glad the pooch is OK. For God's sake don't expose him to too much Hugh Grant so soon after an operation...give the little guy a chance!

How wonderful... I am glad your baby is with you. You set a wonderful scene. If you ever miss California, let me give you some reality... yesterday it was 101 out and today the weather report called for a cooling trend of 97 degrees. Ick! I don't do heat. Can I come for a visit?

Hope everything turns out well with the test results tomorrow.
