Kodi is 5 months old now, and is 6 pounds heavier that he
was supposed to be. He is chewing the heck out of everything.
Diane recommended a good place for him to stay while we
are on vacation called Biscuits. I called to schedule his stay
and this is what I found out:
Girl on the phone: "what would be a convenient time for you
to bring him in for an interview?"
Me: "what do you mean?"
Girl: "we have to make sure he can get along with other
dogs - does he get along well with other dogs?"
Me: "well, he's a puppy. So far he seems to get along with
other dogs".
Girl: "can you come in on the 18th of this month?"
Me: "sure".
So on July 18th we'll see if he can get a good mark in 'plays
well with others'. If not Marge might be doggie sitting:)

Ever seen that section in Real Simple magazine where they show
things being used for something other than they were intended
for? Old use: snack plate. New use: Tea Caddy! Many years ago
I had a tea party at my house and I ordered the white
tea bag holder. A few years ago Dar gave me the dragonfly
tea spoons. Last Christmas Elaine gave me the vintage snack
plate with baklava on it. The green toothpick holder fits
perfectly in the little raised circle that would usually hold the
tea cup. I love this. {these tea bags are Peyton's, that's why
they are decaf}.
