Good Morning ALL. How are you this morning? I am, we are well. Or at least I think so. Mr. Alvin was up at 2:00 a.m. which was super early considering I stayed up until 10:00 p.m. watching THE SECRETS OF THE ROYALS. I enjoy learning not necessarily secrets but the historical references that are made along the way. Seeing the photos. I have always been a fan of Queen Elizabeth. She is one of a kind and none of the family will ever replace her, and I doubt that they will even try to mimic her style.

Well the temperatures for this week are still super cold. I think that I may have to pay a visit to the vet with the boy. I don’t think he will wait until next week, I am hopefully but don’t know. His nails are super long and he is dragging his butt which is a sign that his anal sacs need to be “cleaned.” Okay more information that we needed to hear on a Monday morning. He is barking and looking at me woefully. So this will be really short and I apologize in advance.

The sun is already starting to rise. Of course it is almost 7:45 and I am running quite late. Usually by now we are downstairs and I have the coffee perking and the work computer turned on. Not today.

We had a good weekend and I am happy for that. Teddy went home about 1:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon. Kobi and her Mom came to pick up Teddy. Always great to see Kobi. She is such a little dolly. I love how she stands on her hind legs and peers out the window. She always wants to look you straight on in the eyes like she is reading your soul and perhaps she is.

Well time to fly. I wish you a great Monday.

With kindness, respect, compassion and of course patience ….. life will be good.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday, February 28th, 2013.

Two big events occurring today one being the birthday of one of my nephews and the other the last day of February.

Both crept up on me …..

So Happy Birthday “D” – whatever you are doing … I hope that you have a great day and the year to follow.

Good-bye February you were good to us and we shall miss you but will see you next year.

Isn’t it funny how we feel about events/dates/special times of the year ?

Birthdays, Christmas, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day, Anniversaries, Mother and Father Days,  and the like.

There are also the historical dates that we mark:  like the Queen’s Birthday in Canada,  and President’s Day in the U.S.

We spend a lot of time and money on the above.

We buy cards and mail them, now we send them on-line.

We buy chocolate, gifts and plan parties.

The whole world’s economy is based largely on these  “dates” ….

I wonder in comparison how much we spend on necessities compared to all of these “special dates.”

Something to think about, I guess.

Well time to get going to work.

Spring is on it’s way and that makes me feel even more great.

Tomorrow is my day off from the office and I work at the store.  YAY.

Have a great day.

Special Hello: to the Birthday Boy ….. Have a great one.


Always, Carol and Alvin
