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.

One tired shopper, two happy shoppers

I've been looking forward to this day all week. After yoga, my friend Christy and I went shopping. I was in need of some brown spring casual shoes and she needed a watch. We planned to enjoy a little time to shop, a light lunch and be home early afternooon. Earlier in the week with the optimistic weather forecast, Steve and I were hoping the afternoon would lead to a bike ride. It was snowing today so those plans were changed and so ... our shopping time became all day. Wandering around stores, stopping periodically to just sit and visit, a little lunch, walking more = a tired shopper who now seems to be recuperating in the closet. I tell her, Cricker girl we are going out tonight.
Have you tasted a chocolate dipped raspberry before? Such a heavenly treat! Ann Taylor Loft was having a Customer Appreciation Sale including cute water bottles and chocolates. Such a party ... even Cricket received a water bottle and was happy for the drink. As Cricket might say - my handler seemed to have gotten a little involved in her girl time and forgot that dinner time was an hour late! Sigh. Another shopper asked us if Cricket wore her harness 24/7 ... we explained that Cricket had plenty of time to relax and play and that she actually loved her job ... even shopping with the girls.

Sorry, but I had to chuckle at the other shopper's question about Cricket wearing her harness all the time! Sweet Cricket, having some downtime in the closet. I hope she enjoyed her dinner, even if it was a bit late!
