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.

Gifts. The Red Striped Shirt.

How is your holiday shopping coming? I am in serious need of sitting down and getting organized! Thus far, I'm going from one event to the other quickly getting a gift as needed. Office party this Friday - need a $15 gift for a colleague. I keep thinking of her and that something fun gift ... so far, I know it includes a 6-pack of Mtn. Dew!

This red and white striped shirt Steve has on this recent picture with Natalie and Kendall has been on so many vacations. After realizing it was appearing in so many pictures on vacations, now it is saved just for vacations. Really, I think its about 20 years old!  One of these days ... I want to put together a book: The Journeys of the Red Striped Shirt.
This picture of my dear family just brings a smile to my face. 

Cute story.  On our recent return flight from San Diego, as we were asking for our seat assignment, the attendant at the gate told us she recognized Cricket and her rug!  Cricket's fleece is her place of comfort.  She knows when that is put down on the floor of the airplane, she's in her spot.

Rug story very cute.
That photo album would be a gift for Steve when he least expects it. ;)

what a cute book idea. It reminds me of the children's stories your mom writes for the grandkids.

That shirt looks great for being 20 years old! Funny that the plane attendant remembered Cricket and the rug but didn't say she remembered you?! She must be a dog lover to be so oblivious to the human!
