A Mom and Pop Shop...

First off, Happy Mother's Day to you all that are Mothers in some form or another. I hope you all had a happy and enjoyable day. My parents are both up in Heaven so I had them on the brain over the last couple of days. Especially my dad. I don't know why. I guess I just miss him right now. I haven't followed the Cubs much this baseball season. I think that I must be in a little funk right now because I've been thinking about him a lot lately. I had a dream about him last night. I dreamt that I was in different places and each place I went, he was sitting there in a chair, watching me. I finally went up to him and hugged him and told him I loved him. I woke up and for a split second, thought he was here on earth again. It was at first scary, but I got rid of that feeling quickly when I realized that maybe my dad really loves me. It wasn't a nightmare. My folks are in a much better place than I am. They're happy. I'm glad they aren't in pain anymore. They aren't suffering. In fact, they are experiencing the ultimate in love... I know that I miss them and love them a ton. Maybe that's why I've been sort of surly today. I went to Church and the topic for today's service was 'marriage'... Oh perfect! I can't even imagine marrying someone but I toughed it out and didn't dismiss it altogether... BUT...
I don't know... Well my dog Penney and my 2 nephews had their picture in a local parenting magazine called 'Toledo Parent'... the boys are 9 and 7 while Pen is a little 3 year old mini-daschund... It was for an article called "kids and their pets"... I let the kids and their mom and dad keep my dog because theirs turned on them. Well, with all of my travelling for broadcasting it wasn't fair to my Penney to be alone for a few days at a time... so I told them they could "borrow" her... Let's put it this way... my sister says of how they feel about "their" dog: "the boys absolutely love her. And as for my husband, after 10 years of marriage, I thought I'd have to worry about him being bored and looking at women... i didn't think the woman in question would be a damn dog!" the little dog sleeps with my sister and brother-in-law... need I say more :)~ Well, another week of work awaits so I'll yak at you folks later... Peace...

spirtual dream I'd say :)

I love dogs more than people actually except for a few people that is.

Dad was stopping in to say hi. I have a friend who does that from time to time.
