First, Maggie is fabulous — what a face!

Second, hard to ignore the waterbed thing. Really, Jack???

Third, a former neighbor who was known to walk her dogs while I was walking mine, once said that you have to be patient with dogs stopping to smell every few feet (or inches). She said it was like us reading the newspaper. We want to take our time and don’t want anyone to jerk us away from a good story. Same as dogs and their smells.

Fourth, you have sympathy from Captain Argentina and me about the bed situation. Only for us, the cats hog the space. Yes, yes, a cat is smaller but so is our bed! And, we have 2 cats sometimes competing for space!

Bottom: Tango and Sebastien and Captain Argentina — no room for me :(

Fifth, thank you, Jackster, for allowing me to publish this heartwarming story.
