Tomorrow, I will write my 1500th blog! I can’t believe it.
Sadie is still at the clinic, but seems to be improving. Tests and more tests. Now there seems to be a possibility that she doesn’t have Cushings at all. I just want her to come home and be her normal beagle-self, goofy and funny and always on the look out for a stray Beggin’ Strip.
I guess this is an example of light and shadow being necessary for the whole tapestry of a life. Certainly there are worse things going on in this troubled world right now, so I don’t want to sound as though I’m complaining. I’m grateful for every second I’ve had–and will have–with Sadie O’Grady the Potato Lady. (Yes, that is her real name. Now you know.)
I was watching ghost videos on Youtube this morning while I drank my first cup of coffee. It’s amazing what you can do with Photoshop and some fishing line. The UFO videos always seem to be composed of very distant flashes of light, and there’s one showing this really fakey looking “ghost” haunting Stonehenge–it is very flat and looks projected onto the stone. The mystery to me wasn’t the ghost, it was how the photographer got the people who look after Stonehenge to not only take down the ropes that surround it but allow this person to walk around among the stones, taking pictures. I’ve been there several times–it’s fascinating to me–and going past the ropes is strictly verboten.
I have a badly needed hair appointment today, and a speech tomorrow night at Spokane Valley Public Library, 7:30 sharp. If you’re in the area, do stop by and say howdy.
In the meantime, it’s back to “Big Sky Country”. Just between us, I think it may be the best thing I’ve ever written…
See you tomorrow for #1500. Shall we wear party hats?
