We (Alesa) are watching the neighbor's dog while she visits family in New Hampshire. Ladybug came over on the 10th and will be going home on the 22nd. She is very well behaved but quite needy for attention and, with her short legs, walks very slow and gets quite stubborn when she has had enough. She is fine and not much work to take care of, but we have been a bit home-bound for the last 9 days. Alesa and I did golf on Sunday morning and managed to shop at Sam's this afternoon. It has rained, or threatened rain, every afternoon for the last two weeks so we wouldn't have been doing much anyway. Today at Sam's Alesa was commenting on how I just bought something that wasn't particularly healthy. A lady overheard her and said to me, 'I am not going to die hungry'.
