I hope everyone is keeping safe these days

I don’t have much to report during this uncertain time other than to say Michael and I are doing well and I hope everyone else been doing well also and taking as many precautions as they can.

My dog Kinsey is keeping a close eye on us. This picture is from the other night when she was trying to get Michael and me to go to bed. She doesn’t want to go to bed unless we’ve at least gone into the bedroom (she sleeps on a dog bed in the walk-in closet) and gets most upset if we stay up past our bedtime watching TV in the living room or whatever. She doesn’t jump around and snort at us like she used to, but still paws at us insistently and comes right up close to me and stares at me like this:


She is a good girl. Now 15 and a half! Taking her out for walks is one of the only legit ways I can escape the house. We can’t go further than around the block because she gets tired after that. But it’s enough.

There hasn’t been much crime news to report but I’m sure all sorts of things are going to come out of the woodwork once the shut-down period ends. Already, one guy did his wife in and tried to cover it up by claiming she’d died of COVID-19. She has not been located yet, but he’s been charged with murder.

Stay safe. Wash your hands. Stay home if you can.

    Aw, what a cutie! You can almost hear her thinking “Come on, pleeease go to bed. I’m tired.” 🙂

      “You are misbehaving. You need to do what Grandma says and go to bed.”

    My 15 year old yellow lab does something similar. She barks at me when she wants to go to bed, because I’m also supposed to go to bed. Sometimes I will just lie down until she’s falls asleep, then get up again. She doesn’t wake up, and it doesn’t bother her. Your dog is so beautiful. I hope you and Michael continue to be well. Take care and thanks, as always, for all you do.
