Some Favorite Dogs

2019_01_17_10_13_04.pdf000Grover – our Fiji hound.    A very loving dog.  He used to sit on the sea wall and wait for the boys to come home from school (Suva Primary) on the school bus.  He jumped for joy when they appeared – I think it was the highlight of his day.

We got this dog from the pound.  He was very frightened and shy to begin with but he soon proved to be a treasure.

 

Today’s Date

I;ve been thinking about today;s date with a mixture of joy, sadness, and remembrance.  Today June 26 = the last day of school here in Seattle, our oldest grandchild’s 19th birthday, and the date my brother died back in 1992.

I was living in Kenya back in 1992 and when the  sad news reached me, I made arrangements to fly from Nairobi to Boston, and then proceed to New Hampshire and then Rutland  Vermont for the funeral.
