Me in my matron of honor gown

My husband and I at a recent wedding

I got two comments on my last post, Hooray!

I read in the tech news how popular blogging is, but I think it must be younger folks who are participating the most or politically active people. Since I am not in the former group I definitely am in the latter group.
As I mentioned in my post "its been a year!", many things have happened. I won't bore you with all of the details but instead tell you the latest happy news. We travelled to Hot Springs Arkansas and bought a male Japanese Chin puppy. He is adorable. I originally was going to get a female but with an eye to the future, I was not crazy about her markings. I chose a sable and white male, which I named "Mieko" which means "Bright" in Japanese. The name really fits him. He has caught on to going outside to do his business, and when we do not pick up on his hints that he has to go outside, he uses the "wee wee pads" which are a housebreaking aid. I had forgotten how much fun it is to have a puppy in the house. He is full of energy, and so far, our toy poodle Peppi is just tolerating him. I am sure in a little bit of time they will be best buddies.
Today is my husband's birthday, he is 79 today. Our daughter came home this weekend to celebrate his birthday with him. We were all supposed to go out to see "Finian's Rainbow" which is being put on by the local community theater, but the day before yesterday, my hubbie fell and he is still pretty sore.
I will close for now, I want to save some news for another post.
