This is our friends' dog, Abby, a golden lab who's close to 10. She knew Emily and my other other Golden Retriever Molly. It seemed right to give her some of Emily's things when she visited this weekend. The giraffe she is sleeping on was Emily's. I also gave her Emily's teddy bear and her handicap ramp. Janet and Steve, Abby's owners, live in a very large RV. Abby is having more and more trouble getting up to the door. The ramp will make it easy on her bones and easier on Steve's back.
I'm an Aquarius who was raised a Roman Catholic in Minnesota. I've managed to overcome the religion and the state. I've lived in California for 40 years. I retired in 2007 and became a quilter and appliquer. Never thought I would find the medium that would let me express my artistic feelings. I love vivid color. In addition, I'm a locavore, foraging for food to keep my husband and me healthy and to help local farmers. I live in Northern California on five acres.
