WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES.

The clean cut football player has a beard and wears his glasses more than his contacts.

At 8:17 Puppy will turn twenty. Ah, the useless and worthless teenage years are over. Real adulthood has begun.

I asked if he wished to go out to celebrate his advancing age and he quickly requested that I fix him a baked potato and a steak. That was a compliment to my cooking.

He wishes to rent a movie and watch it after dinner. What a nice way to spend his day. He can celebrate with friends this weekend.

The two ladies in the picture with him is his Mimi in yellow and his adopted Grandmother. When Mz Dodie and Mr. Jim were staying in the little cabin while their condo was being completed, they did not have any grandchildren. Puppy was five at the time and they adopted him and he adopted them.

He would tell me that he was gonna watch television and when I would start looking for him, he would be at the cabin watching old movies with them. They now have eight grandchildren of their own but still claim Puppy as number one.

The Kitty Justice is that their daughter was glad they practiced on Puppy as they are wonderful grandparents but how else could they be since they are wonderful people. Also, the kitty justice is that if Puppy gets older so do the rest of us.

Hi Lady Di ~~ I hope the birthday boy had a great day. Thank you so much for your comments. Glad my dumplings reminded you of your Mother. And I am so sorry about your friend. I had
breast cancer 28 years ago, but I was very lucky, Glad you liked the Friendship poem, and I hope your friend likes it. Take care of yourself, as you will be feeling sad and so helpless. Thanks for your very kind words. Love, Merle.

Tell Puppy "Happy Birthday." My card is late this year because I am a ding-a-ling.

I will tell Puppy but do not worry lots of family members "FORGOT". At least his God Father called him and sent an e mail. My side forgets all except their own.
love ya
