Back to Reality

Yes, that means a sick dog, vet visit, water leak and several other events conspiring to keep me from working. I was so determined to keep up my super work pace after the Weymouth retreat. Maybe tomorrow will be better. Meanwhile, here are some pictures from the Scribblers’ workweek.

    Thx for sharing these great pics Diane. It’s wonderful seeing all these creative people together working on what they love to do. I’m sorry you had to come home to some problems, but most importantly, plz tell me that your doggie is ok? Is it Keeper or Jet?

    It was Jet. I think he’s okay now, but he was really sick yesterday. He’s so orally fixated and gets into everything, even though we watch him like a hawk. (I’ve seen him pick up and carry a dime from room to room. He’s an odd little guy). The vet gave him IV fluids, medication for his tummy and special food, so I hope he’ll be feeling much better soon.
    Poor baby.
    Poor carpet.

    Hope Jet is better today! I have a granddog that has to be watched like a hawk but has managed to chew up a cell phone and a tv remote in the blink of an eye! She is sweet but does love her “chewies”.

    Oh, I’m sorry Diane. I hope he’s back to his old self soon (except for getting into things)…take care of your baby.

    Haven’t commented for awhile, but i’ve been reading the blog, don’t worry!
    Two of our kitties–the boys–are chewers. We have ‘lost’ an alarm clock, a lamp, two sets of headphones, a keyboard, and a phone power cord. The lamp is a Stifel, very $$, it’s now being rewired.
    We covered all the wires we can with the flexible covers from Home Depot. I caught Fletcher chewing on one of those! Bought cat chew toys but they’re not intersted. Hope they grow out of this phase!

    You’re lucky a kitty hasn’t gone up in smoke with all that wire chewing. My (no longer with us) bernese mountain dog once caused a power outage chewing a wire. (i hasten to add that’s not what did him in, but it DID put an end to his wire chewing).

    I KNOW! I voiced that concern to Gary, who said the voltage is low in those wires. To which I said–the cats don’t weigh much, they’ll feel it more than we would! But I don’t think anyone got zapped, even a little bit.
