We hope to not meet Gerard/Sully--

Isn't that so true?---
--like---I really did not want to walk this AM---I knew I had to however--because last night in bed, I had that "shakey leg syndrome"--which usually comes on if I haven't exercised--
And to be healthy I knew I had to move---
There are about 20 homes on our road--only one other Lady and I walk--
I met her this A.M.--

I have to go to it, to succeed---

It is Sunday- The AC is on---I have been changing beds---ready for son#2 the Pilot to arrive this Labour Day weekend--
I hear he has a puppy, called "Gerard"----We call him "Sully"---

"I hope he doesn't bring that puppy up here!" I hear himself saying--
The puppy is not trained---Lord love a Duck!---Why do grown kids bring their pets to Mom's?
Somehow I must figure out how to tell Son#2 that his Dad (and Mom)-don't really want to meet Gerard/Sully!
"You tell him!" Himself says to me---

Crazy life isn't it---

EVERY MOMENT----WE are so lucky!---and we will succeed---

    I understand and that is a rule at my house too. If not house trained, not welcome. Yes, I do have a dog and we got him as a puppy but we trained him before taking to visit. Ashley also told the children the same thing or else they were told if they just showed up with a little animal, the critter had to stay outside.

    Have a fun visit with Son #2.

    Yes, that responsibility also falls on my shoulders and often I'm telling my kids things that I really don't care about! The life of a woman...

    Have a good day!

    Family is so fun! DIL showed up with an abandoned baby kitten. Never know what she will bring. She hoped someone would want it. No more animals here!! House ir busy with company now oldest son ansd family are visiting, short visit so everyone trying to get here.
    Going to be lost so tears when I weigh, not really, I expect the worst. Muffins before, fried bread, frosted blueberry donut and potica with butter. Once a year. But walking thru that park in the hot son must use a lot of calories, sure wears a person out! Bought 3 bars of soap, not the usual vendor I usually see, did not care for the scents. I did finally find the sheets so have some pretty blue ones, took us awhile to fins their booth. Just worn out walking home by then, hot!
    I better get dressed and mingle, lots of luck with the new puppy. Just heard Brandy has a bug bite in her ear so I have to clean it but she already ran into her crate, she knows something is up. emoticon

    My son-in-law knows that their dog is not welcome here. They only come for an afternoon visit so not a major problem. I am not a dog person and my friends and family know that. I would never think of going anywhere and taking my CATS along! Would your DS agree to leaving the dog in the garage if it is not trained?

    If one of mine were to bring an untrained puppy to my house they could expect the pup to stay in a kennel or puppy crate while in the house and only let out to relieve himself or to play outside. it is a cardinal rule. Himself doesn't need to step in an unseen puddle and go sliding, nor do you, for that matter. What is that saying, "Begin as you mean to go on."

    Many years ago I learned a new habit from my younger brother. As he was preparing to leave after a visit, dirty towels and sheets were in the washing machine washing and clean sheets on the bed. I appreciated it so much that I now do the same when I visit.

    Have a wonderful Sunday.

    If the son is really an adult, you tell him right away, when he first tells you he is coming! Both of you! Do not be afraid of your children, lest they bully you further!

    Sounds like you’re going to be training a puppy on this visit. It really is a dilemma for me, too. I have a dear friend I haven’t seen in ages, but she will want to bring her dogs and they are not well trained.

    Just let him know that you would appreciate it if the puppy is trained at least paper trained before he brings him. My son and his partner are coming today on their way to the lake to trim some our emoticon emoticon bushes. I shall be so grateful to have it done. Maybe I can even talk him into cutting the bush in the back next to the sun room that is trying to get into the sun room. Have a great weekend.

    So right about the 'keep moving', that is if we want to continue to be able to walk and I sure do!!

    Ohh, I would not appreciate an untrained puppy being brought to my home, even one that is trained can get into mischief because the home is unknown to it! Perhaps your son reads your blogs?? If so, he knows by now that you and the mister don't want his pup brought there!

    LOL! My DH would tell me the same thing. I"m better at 'delivering negative news', I guess. LOL

    Have a great Sunday.
