Norma and I go back half a century, which does not seem possible.
We lived two blocks from each other, and she has two brothers
who are the ages of my siblings. Happy Birthday!
Not a lot going on here, except the heat. We have been
ninety degrees for a week, and that is totally unusual.
Too hot to do anything.
I have been helping a friend set up a cottage for AirBNB.
She should have it up and running by tomorrow. Well,
she better because someone one has rented it for three weeks.
I am going to be helping with reservations and such, and it will
be a new little job. As soon as it is listed on the site, I will post some photos. So really, really cute.
In the mean time I have a couple of photos that will make you smile. First is Carrie’s dog Yona, which is Cherokee for bear. He does not look like one, but it is a great name. He is wild, and nothing seems to tame him. He calms down for others, but for me he just goes nuts. Aside from Carrie, I am his favorite human, and I tried to control him once by spraying him with a water sprayer. It worked so well with Brando, that all we had to do eventually was made the noise, and he stopped in his tracks. Not Yona. Nope. He like the water. I stopped at Kmart yesterday and bought him a swimming pool. This is the before photo:
There is no after photo because he would not come near the pool once it had water in it. Well, not totally true. I stood in it, and I coaxed him in, but he would only stand. Then he would not come near. I think he will eventually play in it. Carrie and I sat around it with our feet in though, and it was nice.
This is Carrie’s rooster. Not a great photo, but the most beautiful rooster I have ever seen. Believe it or not, he is part silkie.
And this is how Brando spends the day when it is just too hot to sleep on the front porch:
Again, Happy Birthday Norma!!!!!
