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.

"Crazy Cool"

I left work Friday evening and told Steve - I love my work. Some days it just hits on what an amazing privilege this is ... how beautiful it is to see family members reunited.

Earlier that day I returned to Apple for some help on getting texting back on my ipad. So helpful to be able to use the keyboard. One associate was puzzled on why I was receiving texts but unable to send. He called over another associate who was also puzzled and then you could feel the lightbulb moment when he said ... I had a lady from Wyoming with this same problem! He then knew just what to do! Thank you lady in Wyoming. I am now receiving and sending texts through my ipad once again.

After our little Apple session while waiting for Steve to pick us up, we sat down and enjoyed a sugar cookie with raspberry frosting. Amazingly yummy. I paused for a moment with my little guide by my feet, sun shining and just felt gratitude.
That evening as we walked out of Cafe Rio (that place is a little stressful with the noise and all its people but love their soup), through this group of teen boys one of them said - That is a crazy cool dog! I smiled.  Indeed.

My MOM just loves your blog and so glad that Miss Lydia turned us on to it. I I have to agree with the boys comment.
Blessings,

Isn't it just "crazy cool" to fall in love with each day? Cafe Rio soup, frosted sugar cookie, loving your work, sunshine, teenage boys, and getting something electronic to work again! I love days like that!!

SUCH a crazy cool dog Cricket is! I also think it's crazy cool that you can stop in a moment of trying to find out what's happening with electronics to thank a woman in Wyoming! Your outlook on life is crazy cool. We love that!
