Age Finally Caught-Up With Fox   3 comments

There once was a feisty little dog
whose name was Fox.
He demanded 100 percent from
his human friend, Jill.

In the beginning of their relationship
he was able to get what he wanted,
he needed her and she needed him.
Fox was her baby and he knew it. 

Over time Fox learned to tolerate
others as long as Jill was around,
remaining very jealous of her attention.
Then James came on the scene.

Like his human friends, over time
he got gray, hard of hearing and 
and learning to live with vision lose.
Even so, Jill give him life till the end.

(Fox died May 11, 2019 at the age of 22.)

During our recent brief stay in Sedona, Jill, James, Joy and I went on a two hour jeep tour behind Thunder Mountain. I used James as an excuse to finally get Joy out on a back-country jeep tour. Considering that Joy was still recovering from surgery, she did quite well.

The ride was a joy with Joy!

The Face of a Child

by Tina Zellner

Through the face of a child
you can see so much
they have very soft smiles
with a warm gentle touch

You can see the sweetness
in all that they do
the precious look when
you tell them you love them too

The smile on their face
when they play in the rain
the sad on their face
when their aching with pain

A child is so precious
God’s gift from above
so give them your heart
and give them your love

Sometimes they may not say
and sometimes they may not show
it’s then that they really need you
more than you know

So give them your time
and show them how to grow
for all of them are special
more than we know!

A Mother’s Day Thank You Card From Mom To Justin And Jill — Image by kenne

The day before flying to Ontario, CA to spend a few days with her mother and sisters, Joy received flowers from Justin and Jill. They are beautiful and it became my responsibility to keep them that way while she was in southern California. Additional, I was asked to take a photo of the flowers and send a thank you response to Justin and Jill.

Chase and Grandma before others arrive from church.

Some separated by distance, others by schedules missed our Christmas Eve gathering, a tradition that goes on in spite of . . .

But, thanks to technology we were able to share Christmas with everyone. Additionally, we will be getting together with  David, Janie and the girls tomorrow for Christmas #2.

Here are a few photos with some video to come.
