I thought I'd post to let you know that Mom's been under the weather and is having breathing problems (She has a doctor appointment tomorrow) so Rocky and I haven't had any new adventures to write about.
But.....a funny thing did happen last night that Mom calls a freak accident. We were all sound asleep at about 2 AM. Next thing I know I wake up to Mom screaming and bleeding. From what we could deduce, one of the cats fell off the headboard and landed on Mom's head. Mom had fallen asleep with her glasses on so we don't know if when the cat hit her head if her glasses cut her or if the cat scratched her trying to break his fall. Well, she has a cut across her eyebrow, one on her eyelid and one below her eye. It's starting to turn pretty colors now!!
Mom, Rocky & I just finished watching the service for Senator Ted Kennedy. My Mom's eyes have been watering for two days. It was a very moving service and when they sang "When Irish Eyes are Smiling" she lost it.
Her family are Boston Irish and she is the only one in her family to leave Boston. She grew up in the Kennedy Era. My Grandpa was a union official and was involved with politicians. He worked with Senator Kennedy on a couple of occasions.
Mom remembers Grandpa saying that Ted Kennedy would always ask "What can I do for you?". He always said "nothing", except one time he asked the Senator to ask his brother, the President, to send my Auntie Trisha an autographed photo. Sure enough a few days later a package came from the Senator's office with a autographed photo that said "To Pat...very best wishes, Mr. President."
Nearly 50 years later that photo still hangs in Auntie Trisha's house.
Here is a picture of Senator Kennedy taken in the early 1960's. My Grandpa is in the back to the Senator's left.
Siku Marie tagged me for the Oops I Ate It Award, and I'm supposed to blog about a time when I helped myself to some food that I shouldn't have. The only food I ever "steal" is when Mom is eating and misses her mouth! Mom sits in her recliner to eat and I climb up on the back of the chair and lay in wait. If I see something fall.....it's mine......all mine. I am so quick I don't know if Mom even notices!!
Now here are the rules to this award:
"When accepting this award, you must blog about the food you have stolen when your humans were not watching. If you have never stolen any food, you must have been a really good pup! You can accept this yummy tray of cookies as your reward! Next add the logo of this award to your blog (optional), then nominate at least 5 other furry blogs and let them know by leaving a message on their blogs."
As some of you know, my Mom and Dad used to show Afghan Hounds. Well, even though they don't do that anymore they are still involved with the local Afghan Hound Club. They put on two shows last weekend. Mom was the official show photographer, so here for your enjoyment are a few of her photos. Hope you like them!!
