  8. Good morning! Yes Ducky, I actually slept until 6:00! Two glasses of wine and not going to bed until 11:00 will do that! Kathy
  9. We just got back to our hotel from the wedding. It was lovely! Both bride and groom are widowed so it was a second marriage for both of the m. The bride is my sister-in-law, my brother’s widow. (He died suddenly in 2013), so it was a little emotional for me. The groom’s wife died of cancer a while ago. He is Jewish, she is Catholic, and they had a Jewish ceremony-it was lovely and very interesting. The ceremony was at the Pearl S.Buck house overlooking the wildflower garden and the reception was in an outdoor tent. The weather was spectacular, clear blue sky with temps in the 70’s and no humidity. She looked lovely in a silver sequined gown, he wore a suit. There was a cocktail hour outside, then dinner and dancing in the tent. It was a perfect day for sn outdoor wedding! I will post a couple of pictures when I get home to my desktop computer- it’s easier than my phone for pictures! Miss Kathy
  10. Good morning! Halise, I’m so sorry your Dad is doing so poorly. AndiPants, Sorry about your sprain- at least it’s not broken! Now behave and rest that leg!
  11. Ivy and Cherry are happily (!?!) ensconced at their dog sitter's house with four other greyhounds (one is a foster, the other three are theirs). Our picnic was very nice and the girls enjoyed all the petting and ear rubs from all the people! They also enjoyed meeting LOTS of greyhounds - about 50 or more in attendance! There were at least 70 people, including some kids too. It was in a county park with picnic pavilions so we were shaded from the sun. There were greyhound games, a raffle with raffle tickets, and an area with gently used greyhound paraphernalia as well. We bought an almost new dog bed for $15! Everyone brought their own picnic lunch, so I did a charcuterie board for me and for Jim, with cheeses, grapes, meats, crackers and some wonderful artisan olive bread. No alcohol allowed in the County's parks though, so no wine, only iced tea and diet coke for us. The girls had their treats, plus treats that other people gave them too! We won a basket of toys from Loyal Companion in the raffle, so our girls will be happy! Tomorrow we leave for the wedding and will check into our hotel first to get dressed for the wedding, which is from 5pm to 10 pm. Then we will leave Monday morning after breakfast at the hotel and will pick up the girls around 3:30 when Amanda gets home from work. We really miss our girls tonight! Miss Kathy
  12. I'm back from playgroop! It wuz a small groop today cuz the pic-a-nic is happening later and I guess eberywon else can't handle two things in one day! There were only 7 houndies at playgroop (6 fawns and a brindle) plusalso a German Shorthaired Pointer and we were all bery curious about her. She wuz bery nice and we sniffed her and walked around wif her. She wuz a rescue from a bad sichuashun in Alabama and she only weighed 40 pounds when she wuz rescued. She had a litter ob 7 puppies before being rescued and they all went DED cuz she wuz too malnourished to be able to feed them. But now she weighs 60 pounds and is a bery happy girl! Momma is BERY interested in the recipe for pistachio-cranberry-chocolate bark! Wait- does it bark? Mam, I am bery sorry that Pap is doing poorly. I hope he is OK! Your poor beloved Inn, nobody wants to work anymore! Hope you can get through the negst 23 days OK! Ivy getting ready to go to the pic-a-nic later
