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.

Grateful

Hope you have had a great weekend! Other than still waiting for Steve to get in for that darn knee surgery, we are having a great one! No biking for a while. I'm staying loyal but if someone else wanted to captain the tandem for a ride, it would be tempting :).  My running partners are also on vacation; so much needed gardening was my exercise for the day.

Something you may not know about us: Our favorite show is Shark Tank! Anyone else a fan? That show brings out our entrepreneurial spirit! Love it! Thank you to DVR we caught four shows last night :). I really dream of walking out on to the stage (with Cricket of course :) and saying Hi Sharks and presenting ... something! They would eat me alive at this point!

Tonight we spent a lovely evening with friends Lacey and Alanna and their husbands at the Dodo Restaurant. So enjoyable and food was delicious.  Yummy chicken enchiladas and toll house pie!

Let's just say the picture below is laughter over my awkward blind moment.   Oh my goodness :).

Love this - 
At the end of the day the only questions I will ask myself are...
Did I love enough?
Did I laugh enough?
Did I make a difference?  Unknown

Love the laughing photo. In fact my MOM has a card sitting right next to the computer that she is sending to a friend that says, "Never regret anything that made you laugh" On the inside it says "Smiles are contagious." And you photo made us giggle so it must be true.
Blessings,
Goose

I love that picture! I didn't realize Steve caught us in the moment. I think I was wiping away tears I was laughing so hard. So great to laugh. :)
At the end of the day Becky, know that you have made a huge difference in my life. I will always love you for your strength, your love and your ability to laugh at the blind moments. I think your vision is so much better than most people I know. Just in a different way. Love you!
