Pretty and her pool…

Pretty is in love again – this time with her swimming pool.

where, oh where, is Pretty?

Charly thinks Pretty may be inside…

but no one comes to the door. 

Pretty’s birthday bouquet

Happy Birthday, Pretty – I love and adore you.

    • Honestly, Ann, I hope you will feel like visiting us this summer…We have just finally purchased a new mattress to sit on the original box springs of my grandparents’ bed in our guest room so we are ready to receive!! I know how difficult it is to leave your charges – we face the same problems! Hopefully, you can arrange a visit!!
      We would so love to have you here in person…and yes, we do love the new digs. It’s a work-in-progress, but we think it was definitely the right move.

    I am thrilled to be invited. The guest bed sounds very impressive! As I am finally seeing an end with the estate matters, I do hope to get away. All I can say just now is I will try. The horses and cat are easy, it’s the darn dogs

    • Honestly, Ann, it really is always hard to figure out a plan for the dogs. I hope you can work something out that suits everyone!
      I am so glad you are finally seeing an end to the estate matters. I know that will ease some of the burdens.
      We will continue sending good thoughts and much love.
