Greetings and salutations, peeps! Sam here. We’ve returned from ‘going fishin’ and can I just say best. week. ever! We did and experienced things we never thought possible. Everything was just perfect.
Mom and I were reminded by the expression “may you live in interesting times.” Certainly the times are beyond interesting these days, so I thought I should investigate and try to find out the what and from where that expression came. Many people have used it including some notably famous folks (Robert F. Kennedy, in fact) and it is universally thought to be some sort of Chinese folk wisdom. Some people think it’s actually a translation of a traditional Chinese curse though no actual Chinese source has been discovered. In any event, suffice it to say we think of it as positive and intend to view it on that basis.
So what did we miss? Mom made some feeble attempts to ‘try’ and keep up (if you ask me, she did a lousy job, because there were more than a hundred emails in her inbox, but hey…that’s just me, what do I know…I’m only the dog in this equation and clearly the only one on this team who never stops working). One thing is for sure though, she was thinking about you guys and hoping everyone was having as great a time as we were with perfect September weather. So dish now…what all did you do this past week while we were away? Hope you know that you were missed.
Live, love, bark! <3

Thanks, while I had the best. week. ever. it’s been good to get back to reality though I could have done with a bit less of the ugly reality of this week but we’ll get through it…eventually. One bite of the elephant at a time 😉
Welcome back dear Sam. Glad to know you had a great trip
Thanks! It was the best. week. ever for both of us.
Welcome back. We had quite a hectic week last week and I’ve also been trying to get my head around the downs and back up of my health, which has left me feeling exceptional grateful but disoriented.
I joined a new weekend coffee share at #weekendcoffeeshare and found this tribute to your Pumpkin Spice Latte and thought of you. Here’s the link: https://zipsrid.wordpress.com/2015/09/13/a-cup-of-joy/
My aunt from Perth came for a visit yesterday so we spent the weekend preparing the house and yard, washing dogs etc so we could look like someone else’s family and came up almost smelling roses. After all of that excitement, I slept much of today after walking the dogs along the beach this morning xx Ro
Wally & Sammy
Thanks, we’re happy to be back since we missed you all, but between you and me, I think mom is still dreamy eyed during her time away from work. 😉
It was boring here cuz mom spent all her time getting ready for her yard sale.
