 I didn't realize I haven't posted since that dark cloud was over my life. I'm glad to say it finally dissipated in time for me to get one heck of a cold/virus.  

My Grandson and I both got it from my daughter whose step-son had it.  Dang.  I should have stayed in lockdown but since Grandson is working at Olive Garden and bringing home all kind of bugs, I imagine, I thought I could sneak through.  No luck.  

He and I have been locked in this house, so to speak, since Christmas Day when it started with a sore throat, and I had to cancel Christmas Celebration with Grand Girls.  So, we rescheduled for New Year's but no, we were worse by then.  

Today I got up and made myself go to grocery store.  Even though I have been walking Buddy throughout most of this, I still needed to build up my strength.  

So, I'm glad to let you know that dark cloud did not suck me up like a tornado and send me to the of Land of Oz.  Hahaha.  Maybe this virus really was a bad trip to Oz.  

Other than that, Buddy also got sick.  He had this huge knot in his neck gland.  Luckily it started going down pretty quick.  He didn't eat for about two days when it started so I was giving him all kind of fruit and baby aspirin to help his sore throat.  He did loose a little and weight and looks really good.  I wish I could miss eating for two days and be back to my fighting weight.  Yeah, man.

Got word that the Son and girlfriend are getting married in Las Vegas on 02/22/2022.  I don't think I'll be going.  The exposure to Covid or other bugs is too great for me. Thank goodness for videos.  They don't have live stream, but we will get to see the video.  

In other news, I got an early Christmas gift from my other DIL.  Socks with a real picture of Buddy, not just a chihuahua in general.  How cute!

Perfect present for me. 

The new and improved Buddy.  

More later .... 



  1. Glad you are over that cold/flu, Barbara. It sounds bad. Buddy is looking great. Love those socks!

  2. So happy to hear both you and Buddy are feeling better. Jim and I go no where except doctor's.

  3. Sorry to hear you've been so ill. I hope you're all recovered now. And poor little Buddy too!

  4. Happy and healthy New Year to you and Buddy!

  5. If I didn't eat for two days, I'd probably look heavier---darn men. I mean, darn dogs. I'm glad you are both on the mend. A lot of people are not well right now. (my house included) This covid virus is extremely contagious, but luckily not so much life threatening.
    LOVE the Buddy socks!

  6. So glad you are doing better and Buddy too. These days even a bad cold is scary.

  7. Sorry to hear you were sick, glad you're better. And you're smart not to try to get to Vegas. But 2/2/22 ... that's a pretty cool date to get married!

  8. I got socks with picture of our Rudy on them. My response was, "Oh my gosh, it looks JUST like him!" To which our daughter laughed and said, "It IS him." LOL That was my favorite gift.

  9. Just about all of our kids/grandkids have been sick with covid lately. We've been very careful to isolate, but I know Omicron is easy to get. Hope you, Buddy and family are recovering well.
