  1. My husband and I watched the whole series of Rectify! We really enjoyed it even though it was hard and sad at times. I just though it was a very interesting series and made me think about situations (coming out of solitary confinement) I’d never thought of before. I read your blog every day but rarely comment! Have a great day!

  2. Poor Charlie. I feel so sorry for him and I know you must really worry about him. I hope he is able to get some relief. xo Laura

  3. Bless sweet Charlie Boy and you too for being such a caring mama. I laughed out loud reading Ivy Lou’s antics in the tub, scattering zinnia seeds! Oh what fun she had!

  4. Brenda I have to say you are a wonderful Mom for Charlie and Ivy. I know you are also to your daughter and grandson too. But many people are not nearly as caring as you are for your furry “ children”. Kudos to you for all your care for them. I know you inspire many of us to be just a bit more thoughtful of how we can help our blessed furry ones. I know Charlie’s aging is the real problem. Like all of us age takes a toll on our bodies and we wear out. Charlie has though the best caretaker in you and your love for him is seen daily by all of us. Your sweet boy is blessed to have you. Since I’ve been reading your blog I’ve always found his sweet spirit the dearest to read about. He just needs sheltering and understanding and this boy was so lucky to find all those things in you. Hope the rain lets up to help Charlie breathe easier. Isn’t it time for you to take off to your antique mall and take country photos along the way ? I always like those photos you take along the way. Happy weekend.

  5. Bless little Charlie. Older pets have a hard time.

  6. I hope Charlie’s treatments help him. When you mentioned the rainy weather making it harder -or him to breathe I wondered whether a dehumidi-ier would help him as it would take the moisture out o- the air in the house. Just a tho’t. I know ours keeps our basement less humid. So hard to know what else to do -or that sweet doggie. I know you do everything you can to keep him com-ortable, though.

    The book sounds like a tense read. I know a woman whose grandson was stolen by her son-in-law and taken to Europe as a very young child. Her daughter never got him back. A sad, sad story and one based on disregard -or the damage it does to the child in order to get revenge toward the mother. Criminal, in my opinion.

    No rain yet here and the ground is really needing it. Hard to pull weeds it’s so dry. Hoping to have a day with a soaking rain soon.

    Happy weekend, Brenda.

  7. Poor little Charlie!! I hope they can help him!! That book sounds great, too bad my library doesn’t have it…it’s too new, of course. Our little moutain top library isn’t the biggest, you know!

  8. I hope Charlie’s acupuncture appts work for him! It’s so hard not knowing what else you can do, but you’re doing your best Brenda bc all his needs are met! He’s in my thoughts and prayers, that he walks better on his legs.
    Have a great day with Charlie and Ivy! ???
