So, I took off work today because I'm going to a viewing. My friend Patty's mom died and the viewing is today, she's been a friend for almost 9 years. I'm not big on viewings - the dead never look real, always plastic, no matter how much makeup and how special the lighting. I'm not having one. It's in my will. No viewing. I'm going to be cremated and have my ashes shot out into space. Well, not all of them, they only shoot out about 2 oz which means the rest of me will have to be mixed with the dog's ashes and scattered somewhere peaceful.
Speaking of the dogs, I went to my local Giant supermarket yesterday morning and when I got home one of them, (the only one big enough) had pulled to loaf of bread I'd baked off the counter. All that was left were some crumbs scattered across the living room rug. And I had to laugh because I know, all too well, that Seig is big enough to pull anything he wants from off the counter. It was my foolishness for not putting it out of his reach. Lilly's can do it too, but it's usually Big Seig's paws that do the dirty work.
Anyway, since I'm not working today, I'll probably come home and mow my lawn, all that rain has made the green stuff covering it grow.
