The Gathering

The gathering of friends and family
(Cows may come and cows may go, but the Bull Shit here never stops)
The funny thing is all of our tall tales are the truth.  It's a wonder that we all aren't in jail or dead.
Oh what fun it was to get together.
Dogs Welcome, People Tolerated.

It's hard to believe it is already February!  Lots of wet and grey days these last 3-4 weeks.  I'm looking forward to seeing some sun.  Good thing that the temps have been moderate in the 40s.

Ken and I have been playing lots of board games and cards to get us through the ugly weather.  We took a wet day trip to Neah Bay the other day.  We came across an elk herd passing in front of my RV.  A guardian dog was chasing them hahaha (Made for good pics)

Ken hadn't been to the Olympic Game Farm, so he was up for a trip to one of my most favorite places that is minutes from my house.  In fact, he liked it so much he wanted to drive through it AGAIN.  Oh, lucky me!

Yoko looks good after almost 9 months of rest for her back.  Champ is resting from a shoulder injury. I may take him over to Seattle to an Ortho Vet since he does have health insurance.
But, right now, most importantly is that Trouble has been diagnosed with oral cancer.  She will be 16 in May.  Her tumor has doubled in size in a couple of weeks.  It's an aggressive cancer which does not respond well to treatment.  So, I will try to keep her as comfortable as possible until it is her time.  I intend to bury her in Jet's grave with him.  They were pals.

Trouble with 16 yr. old Simon.  She gets lots of love from us and from our dogs.  I always felt she would outlive me :0(  Damn cancer.

Valentine's Day last year I received a dozen red roses from Wayne.  Then, 3 weeks later he asked for a divorce.  It's hard to erase that from my memory. Ugh.
No court date has been set as of yet.  So, I still have all of that CRAP coming up.  I'd sure like it to be all over.   

But, thankfully for me, Ken is in my life now.  We laugh and laugh and laugh.  Plus, he tells me I am amazing and beautiful every day.  The good Lord looked down on me when we we found each other.

It's like 'dog central' around here, hahaha.  But, it's a happy home.
I feel very blessed.

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you.  Open your heart and do something nice for someone :0)
