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.

It's really not THAT bad!
My SWEET friend, Connie, invited me to go with her for our annual mammograms . She scheduled them, picked me up and made something unfun much more fun! Now isn't that friendship! If you've reached 40, it is important to have it done annually. I remembered having a guide dog with me last time but couldn't remember if it was Cricket or Pantera. I realized today it was Pantera in 2006 (oops)... I will be making sure I put it on the annual to do list. Thanks, Connie for making it a fun outing. Cricket handled the new adventure in stride and I did as well. The nurse was very helpful and spent the whole testing asking me all about my guide dog - concerned that she be put in a little separate room which Cricket was fine about. We celebrated taking care of our health with Gelato - YUM!!

What a great cartoon! The last time I had a mammogram, I marvelled at how much easier, faster, and less painful it was than the previous one I'd had. The equipment had come such a long way in a short amount of time--so I encourage those procrastinators to schedule their appointments! Like Becky said, it's not that bad.

A mammogram outing with friends.
Now that's a creative idea.
