I was just kind of thinking about how lucky I am. I have an understanding family, beautiful friends, great neighbors who also have golden retrievers that come over and visit now and then and I get a chance to spoil them with dog biscuits and they reward me with a "paw shake" and a kiss and then I can send them on their way back home.(I guess like grand children?).
I have a comfortable cabin back up in the pines of the mountains that I love, a tee pi, or lodge(complete with lazy boy furniture, beds, wi-fi Internet and a gas fire pit).....sick, but Christy Ann told me that it's OK and Danny Weeks loved it!
I play music for a living (not very profitable but "what the hell") with fantastic musicians who are also dear friends. I have gotten to travel to many places and met new friends there too. I suppose I must have done something in a formal life to deserve this!!!!
