You're Going to Make Me Lonesome When You Go

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

I work with a veterinary technician named Shelly Biers at Gentle Doctor.  She is one of my favorite people.  She is a great tech too.

Shelly is moving to Washington to start a New Adventure.

 I am really going to miss her.

To all my tech friends – I love you AS MUCH as I love Shelly.

To Shelly – I have really grown to love you over these past 18 months.  We are a great team, and I am going to miss you.  I know you are going to continue to do great things.

I will miss Moose too, but I can’t think about that right now *sniff*

I know you have gotten a lot of advice as you go, and here is mine, no longer flippant, guarded or joking – BE YOURSELF because you are extraordinary.  Joe is lucky you are on your way (which I know he knows!)  Whatever veterinary team you end up with is lucky to have you.  I am so impressed you would set out on such a great adventure.  Give Moose a hug from me.  We are so excited for you and cannot wait to hear What’s Next!



Lucy’s Water Adventures

Monday, May 20th, 2013

Saturday was the high school graduation party for our niece Kylah.  Congratulations Kylah!!  We are so proud of you!

Russ, Sara and Shane and I decided to go from the Jones’ to the Finches’ to fish and let the kids go swimming in the lake.  We had one job – keep the kids safe.  We did that.

Well, we had two jobs, keep the kids safe and keep the dogs white.  We did a great job.  Wait, no, we did a 50% great job.  Jacy Dog stayed white.  Here is the other half of the story…

Lucy is Russ’ parents other little white dog.  See?

Lucy escaped through the gate and jumped into the lake with the kids.  I texted this to Karen, “This might have happened,” with this picture –

Since it did in fact actually happen, I let Lucy play in the lake some more.  She is quite skilled at balancing on a knee board.  But then she got out of the lake and THIS happened –

So I did this…

and this…

and texted Karen, “Now Lucy is back to this!” –

We walked back down to the Jones’ and I asked Karen, “Did you get all the pictures I sent you?”

“No!” she said, “Is everything alright??”

“Yes,” I said.

And it was.
