6/15 They're gone

Yeah, I'm crying.

I picked up Jan and she went with me to take Quincy and Cookie to their new home. The home is absolutely lovely, which scares me a little bit. I sure hope the girls remember their manners. Their yard is awesome, with a creek a the bottom of it. I just know they are going to be so happy there. And Lesa seems so nice. We didn't get to meet her husband Steve because he was at church.

Lesa recently lost her little Yorkie, so she gave me a soft-sided carrying case which will be perfect for taking Gus in the car. And Joe and Cindy are giving me their crate that Kirby grew out of. That will be perfect for home. This is saving me a lot of money.

I didn't get to pick up Gus today after all because Jan and I went to help with sandbagging. The river is so high. The old bridge is already closed, and the new bridge is now two-way instead of one way. We're hoping the levees hold. They're calling for more rain tonight.

Am going to dinner with my sisters and their husbands for fathers' day. I think I got a pity invitation, but I'm happy for it. Any time I'm not at home being sad is good. :)

I work 12 hours tomorrow, so I can't pick up Gus until Tuesday after work. So it will sure give me something to look forward to.

Jer one of the dogs flushed out a turkey, her husband was so impressed, she said they slept all night after running and running, she loves them

Oh, Jane, you've made me so very happy. Thanks so much for the report. I almost called you and asked you to check, but was scared.

Jan just talked to her also and her husband rolled around with them on the floor, slept in her daughter's room all night on a comforter

Glad to hear the dogs are off to a great start in their new home.

Hey Jeri, couldn't sleep, so I decided to watch the weather channel. Viewed a clip showing the sand-bagging in Quincy and thought of you. Just wanted to say hi! Sad to read about Quincy and Cookie, but glad you have a smaller dog! Take care! My prayers are with you all up there as you prepare to battle the flood waters. :0( Congrats on the promotion!

So good to hear from you, Markeda. I think of you all often, especially as we near June 30. Hope everything worked out well for you.
