With a little help from the flashy beast operator, a.k.a. Mom, we think we captured a pretty good ussie.
What do you think? A smile from each of us!!!
A little followup on the birthday weekend for Dad. It didn't all go quite as planned, but it was still a lot of fun. The day before grandson J. was to arrive, our human brother-in-law here in the area tested positive for the dreaded virus. That pretty much knocked out our human sister, BIL, and the two boy grands T and B since we have to be very careful with our Dad's kidney issues. And actually the next day the three of them also tested positive. They were pretty sick but are better now. That was the second disappointment since we already knew that J had to come alone from Texas without his Mom and Dad since his Mom, our SIL, had rotator cuff surgery on Wednesday and our human brother had to stay in Texas to take care of her. Then the horrific heat put the kibosh on the big Friday night Royals baseball game. It was still over 100 degrees at 6:00 p.m. so the rest of them decided a game night at home with pizza sounded a lot better. The escape room was a big hit with the four grands that were not sick and able to go. Then we had a fantastic dinner at J. Gilbert's Steakhouse Saturday night. And Mom made a delicious chicken marsala for Sunday dinner. Then everything went haywire again. J was on a flight home to Texas that was to leave at 9:00 p.m Sunday night. During dinner, one text after another kept coming in, each delaying his flight a little later. After a lot of discussion as to what might happen if the flight ended up cancelled, J's Dad rescheduled him for a Monday morning flight. Mom got J to the airport with time to spare, and this flight took off on time. Then about a half hour after his flight left, Mom got a text from J's Dad that J's flight was diverted to Tulsa because of the shooting at Love Field in Dallas where he was supposed to land. Luckily J is now 18 and a pretty seasoned traveler. He handled it all well. His Dad booked a backup flight into DFW in case his original flight got delayed for hours and hours. But in the end he took off again for Love Field about three hours later. To say the least it was an adventurous return home for J.
Mom says she is more than ready for 2022 to be over. Without a ton of detail, we have had way too many family crises. It seems like each week brings a new problem. Since January, there have been at least five major family medical situations. It is hard to remain positive throughout it all , but we do our best to keep the peeps smiling. Sadly today brought more sadness to the family. The smiles in our ussie have slowly turned to tears. We will wait to share it with you this week as the hurt is still too raw. We lost one of our canine cousins:(
Life goes on, or so they say. We do want to wish you all a Happy Sunday and hope you find many reasons to smile.

Note from Mom: I am not sure what is happening or how to fix it, but it appears that many of our blog feeds in Feedly are not appearing. That is our main source of keeping up with your new posts. We started to notice that several of our friends were not posting, but when we went directly to their blog, they actually ARE posting and we are just not getting notified. There are several, including Zoolatry, Four Paws, Madsnapper, Molly the Airedale, Aunty Yam, and many more. We feel so badly that we don't even know when we are missing posts. Is anyone else having this problem and do you know how to fix it? Thanks.
