Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? I just realized when I sat down to write this post that I left my eyeglasses downstairs. Distances I can see with no problem but close up is another story. I am going to try and do this post without wearing my glasses. If I go back downstairs I will just disturb Mr. Alvin and he is being so good. We slept six hours in a row, up and he had his breakfast and we went outside (starting to get cool overnight) and then back to the sofa. I know not likely very good to eat and then back laying down but sometimes cannot be helped. Anyway I am so happy that we have been able to sleep in our bed. We are getting there. Last night the Alvin got away on me and hopped all the way upstairs, he did not go fast but he made it. I know he is not supposed to do that many stairs yet but only been the second time since his surgery. He did not seem to have any issues although I am not going to let that happen on a regular basis. Sometimes I am not fast enough. We are enjoying our longer walks. Not the full walk but we walk as far as Pauline’s house and then turn around and come home. We will continue this length for awhile. I am so happy at his progress and his strength and his ability to do things. He is one strong old guy.

Yesterday shortly after we left the house there was a young many coming toward us on the other side of the street, Alvin stopped and looked at him for a minute or so and was wagging his tail. I stopped of course, the young man happened to glance over our way and noticed us stopped and looking in his direction. He said “Hello” and came over. He was so handsome and sweet. He bent down and said “Hello” to Alvin and gave him some pets and Alvin was so happy tail wagging away. I told him it was odd for Alvin to stop and stare and wag his tail at someone especially a guy with no pup to boot. We had a laugh. Chatted for a moment longer about weather and such and then we were on our way. He was so nice. Younger remember, too young, lol. Still nice of him to come over and say hello. Reminds me how nice strangers can be. What a great way to begin our second walk of the day. At noon when we walked we bumped into friends that we have not seen since June. We used to see them all the time. Makes a difference when you do not walk very far. So happy to start connecting again with people in the neighbourhood. I think that people were beginning to wonder and they are happy when I relate the story of our summer.

Well this is becoming increasingly more difficult to do and the words are so blurry so I had better stop. I should have gone downstairs and got my glasses although if I close my left eye it is not so bad. LOL.

I hope that you have a grand Tuesday. Remember to get out and take that walk at noon if you are able to or after work. Good for the body, mind and soul.

Almost time to get that coffee on to perk. Another workday ahead. Looking forward to an extra long weekend ahead, Thanksgiving weekend. I am so grateful.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, love, laughter and gratitude.

Always, Carol & Alvin
