July 29, 2016 – Celebrating Heat Waves and Teething Puppies


Celebration Friday!!!

Friday is the day we observe the ‘Celebrations’ blog hop founded by VikLit and now ably managed by Lexa Cain and her two delightful co-hosts L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits (Go visit them!)


So…  What am I celebrating?

After about two weeks of above 90 degee weather, the heat wave is breaking!  Temperatures in the eighties and then the seventies.


I thought New England was supposed to be a cool area…

I am also celebrating the fact that my teething puppy appears to be lightening up a little.  Although at four months – approximately 5 years old in human age – he wants to romance anything on four legs at the dog daycare he goes to for training twice a week.  We are hoping for an Alpha Female to arise and knock him into the middle of next week.  That just might straighten him out.

  Someone commented that it might traumatize him.  I suspect that smart, stubborn puppy is about as easy to traumatize as a U.S. Army  Humvee…
