Dog Visitor ~ George & Connie Collins ~ Sami


Good 32 º very very foggy morning. 

Yesterday morning it stayed super foggy and we stayed in the 30ºs until afternoon when we went into the mid 40ºs. A tad of sun came through the clouds! 


I went out back and there was this dog, who just about knocked me down trying to get into the house! He looked to be an Irish Setter...

He was overly friendly. I think I have seen him before, not sure thought. I gave him a dog treat and told him to "go home". He hung around a bit and wanted to get in the yard with Dude. Finally he left. Hope he is OK. Had a collar and license, but couldn't read it. I called my neighbor whose dog, Nova, comes over here all the time to see if he belonged to the mob of dogs her son has. No answer, just answer machine. She never called back. Thinking about it, he probably belongs to the pot growers way up the hill from me on the other side of the BLM.


Friday was a special anniversary I didn't know about until reading it on FB. George (LASD ret) and Connie Collins. HAPPY 50th ANNIVERSARY KIDS! xo
She has had cancer and many procedures and recently she got shingles in both eyes. She is recovering. She needs our prayers!
