I was finally getting caught up visiting my blog friends' blogs, but my sister has taken a turn for the worse and had to go back into the hospital for a little bit.

So I'm driving back up to Toledo today.

One of Martha's friends has graciously invited me to stay, saving me beaucoups de hotel money. But she isn't a computer person, so I'll only have a few minutes of access if I find a coffee shop or something.

I'm leaving Bill with all nine dogs. He's a saint. Please send him and the dogs positive thoughts.

No Bill, no dogs, no computer. Oh boy. I am building some kickass character this year. (It feels like the old bra commercial: no visible means of support!)

hug your hounds


  1. Have a safe trip and I hope your sister is feeling better soon.

  2. Patience
    You'we in ouw thought! and pwayews..pleez go cawefully and know we awe wif you and youw sistew in ouw heawts. Bill is a saint! I know he'll take excellent cawe of all the waggle
    smoochie kisses

  3. We'll be thinking of you - and Bill and the dogs and hope your sister is all well again very soon.


  4. Best of luck to you, drive safe, prayers for your sis.

  5. Maybe you can find some whippet people in Toledo, if you get to really needing some whippet kisses.

    Drive safely! And you may not have -visible- means of support, bu you have hundreds of people globally keeping you in thoughts and prayers!

    Good luck to everyone involved, and I hope Martna takes a turn for the better.


  6. Muzzer sends two words

    "public library"

    and reminds us that it is also possible to walk into a major chain hotel and find a "business center" complete with computers. Just act like you know what you are doing.

    also, check witht the hospital. The more enlightened ones have access in surgery waiting rooms, ICU waiting areas, etc.

    Our hugs and humps to Bill and the Waggle, and Teka says Swede Willy Yum can come here to stay if he wants.


  7. Well we are sending all the invisible support we can muster!!

  8. Patience,
    I am sorry to hear that your sister is not doing well, but glad that you can be there for her. Sending positive thought beams....(how did people survive in the time of paper letters???).

  9. When it rains, it pours, Patience! I am sure Bill and the Waggle will do just super great, and we send our most sincere wishes of comfort for your sister... xoxo The Alaskan Poodle Pack aka Ina

  10. We want photos of Bill walking the waggle.

    All the best to your sister -- we hope this is just a tenporary setback.

    And be safe on your drive.

    Wirey love,

    Jake and Just Harry

  24. You should have gotten a webcam for Bill and the gang! That would surely provide hours of entertainment.
