Tuesday we spent the day finishing up the kitchen counter top project—at least finished as much as we could so Thanksgiving dinner could be cooked and served. Michael installed the sink while I grouted the marble tile he had installed while I was in Arkansas. When the cowboy plumbs the air has a tendency to turn blue but this time everything went according to plan—no cursing. The water at North Ranch is too chlorinated and he installed an extra cold water filter under the sink—a very good thing—I’m not fond of chlorinated coffee! We still need to install the back splash but that will have to wait until after Thanksgiving and after our trip to Yuma for dental work.
Today we made a trip to the grocery store—at 11am every checkout counter was open and the store was hopping. Lunch was at our favorite Mexican food spot and then we headed home to the pooch. The pooch is now wearing her Good Life No Bark Collar thanks to IdahoRV—it’s NOT a shock collar. It has three modes—vibration/audible to only her/audible to Emmi and us. Last season I ordered a shock collar. The one and only time Emmi wore the collar was a supreme disaster and we returned the thing to Amazon. She remembers that awful shock collar and when she got her first vibration yesterday while wearing the new vibration collar it was an instantaneous recall—she was afraid she was going to be shocked. She is a smart dog—she barks at her ball or at someone coming to the door when not wearing the collar. But when wearing the collar there was no howling when we went to the grocery store and out to lunch. Could it be this easy????
Come on Mom, you are lagging behind!
We are so thankful for our families and friends—we wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. We have friends coming for a late lunch—my mouth is watering all ready!
Flowergirl—yes, Chuck is the one who tried to die on us this past summer—he
spent three months and one week in one hospital or another. He is doing
well—back to the humorous, joke cracking self we all love so much!
