Special greeter, happy accident and joyous

- Visiting my friend Jake at the antiques business for special delivery of some sale materials. I call out to the human owner, but she doesn't answer (she was in the warehouse.) Feeling a little nudge, I look down and Jake is looking up. What a special greeter and he can usually be found camping out on this heirloom sofa.

- Too quickly scanning the programmed numbers on my cellphone to call friend Cathy M to tell her I am not going to make a meeting, and having to leave a message (to one of those messages that just speaks the number.) And I called the wrong Cathy. Cathy H calls to say I had better call the correct Cathy to tell her I'm not coming. We have a lovely catch-up - it has been a least two years since we spoke.

- A shout-out to my friends from the True North. The joyous singing of "O Canada" at the gold medal ceremony for the Canadian ice dancing team.

Blue Bunny -

He is fun and lots of petting ensued. :)

I'll bet you would win the karrit peeling kontest! You have a wonderful day and give your family some x's and o's for me.

I wish all businesses had dog greeters!

Glad you caught up with your friend. A happy accident!

Yes, the gold performance was absolutely beautiful...but we're still not recovered from the hockey loss - lol!

That is an adorable picture!

What a wonderful cell phone mixup, since it caused you to get back in touch with a friend. :)

Talon -

Jake always remembers that I know how to shake hands. He sits in front of me and lifts his paw.

Cathy H was a happy accident friend to begin with. We met in line at a Women for Hire job fair when we were both unemployed. We bonded over job hunting.

Well - the crowd sang so joyfully that it made me look up the words to the song, my True North friend!

Riot Kitty -

Isn't it? And do you think anyone will ever want to buy that sofa? He is on it at some point every time I go over there.

Meredith -

It was. I was initially embarrassed, but it was good to see what she's been up to.

I find that any dog that greets me wants to sniff my crotch, and I find it a bit off putting. :D Maybe I need to take more baths.

Great to catch up with an old friend like that too!

Joe -

I don't know why dogs do that, but I don't think it is your hygiene. :)

Good thing someone was keeping an eye on the store- I love folks who get to have pets at work! (n have friendly pets).
I've so many old friends to call- some folks can pick right up again- if only we all had endless time to do it-
Canada has been doing well in these games- seems they must feel alot of pressure being the Home team tho- I missed the team win too- I'd love more tv time for it.

Snaggle -

That is what makes it such a nice place to go to - that there is a friendly dog as well as friendly owner.

I'll sure miss the games when they are over - I haven't gotten to watch them much either.
