three visitors

I had three visitors today. One is sleeping over.

We walked to W.A. Frost for dinner just a few blocks away. We sat outside. My Dad was really hungry and thought his food was delicious (and my Mom's soup). Deciding against dessert at the restaurant we headed back to my apartment. I cut up the peach my Mom brought and scooped the vanilla ice cream. I took them up to the roof and I snapped a few photos. We admired my herbs and decided my basil looks amazing. My Dad then watched The Andy Griffith Show while my Mom and I rested on the bed. Then they said good-bye and it was just me and my dog, Patches.

I can only imagine what she is thinking. Where am I? Why do I not recognize anything? Why is there no room in here to walk around and sniff? I want to go home now.

Random thought....Dogs and babies can be so mesmerizing. Have you ever noticed this before---you are with a group of people and no eyes can avert the constant entertainment of these foreign creatures(?)

For the past half hour I watched her in my apartment. She walks from my rug to my kitchen...it only takes her a second to sniff the refridgerator, the stove, and then the wall...then she goes to her water dish, her food dish, then back to the rug...Oh, look there she goes into my tiny bathroom...then to my closet...then back to my rug...around to the VCR, then she licks my foot...then back to the kitchen. REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT

Even though she is probably going to wake me up at 2 am to go outside, I don't even care. I love her so much that I just watched her eat.

You are so right about dogs and babies. At least, that's how I am.

(I love W.A. Frost.)

Kiki said...

Ahhhhh! What kind of dog is that? Shih-tzu?? So cute!! I'm one whose attention is immediatley diverted to dogs and babies.

Anne said...

Thanks Teresa! I appreciate the link!

Cheryl, it is so true, isn't!? And W.A. Frost is so delicious.

Kiki, you are correct. That is a shih-tzu. Patches is really old, 15 years...and she can't really see or hear anymore but she is still happy and cute! Thanks!

Anne,

Greetings from Montana!
There's NO Starbucks in this town...
(I wish you'd open one up out here-- I miss your grins)

Anne said...

Dave!!!! I just got my pictures back from my last day at Starbucks and there are a few of you!!

Oh no! No Starbucks...what are you going to do??

E-mail me so I can get your address!!

Dave said...

Hmm...
I'm at work on a new system, and don't have your address here! Got your e-address at home, but no internet there just yet-- (remember, I AM in Montana).
Can you write the latter portion of your address in your response here, so I can send you an email? I remember the first part- can't remember what comes after the @, though...
Sorry. What a conundrum! Or is it a paradox? On second thought, maybe it's just a 'pickle'.

Great to hear from you!
