My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Remembering ...

Cricket wondered why she needed to pose in front of these pumpkins ... this is my explanation to her: When the pumpkins are out in front of Dick's Market this time of year, I remember back to when we began looking for a house in this area 17 years ago. The time for me to quit driving had come. We wanted to find a home that was in a great neighborhood for our family, also walking distance to a grocery store, elementary & junior high, and also on the bus route! We were so thrilled when we found this location and it met all these needs! I remember going to a payphone in front of this Dick's Market to call on some homes that were for sale and stepping over pumpkins! We moved four years ago to a different home, but my office is close by to our old neighborhood so we enjoy walking to Dick's and often running into old friends.

That is a very good "stay" Cricket. You are such an easy going girl and always seem willing to do what your mom asks you to. :) All while looking very cute.
