Clumps of Stuff

Sis here.  Funny how important events seem to get clumped together on the calendar.  The week of my birthday is full of stuff to celebrate, and so is this week. 

Sunday would have been Pop‘s 89th birthday.


Pop and me, April 2007

He was my buddy and I still miss him.


Mugsy and me, April 2008

Monday marked two years without Mugsy, my big brother.  I wasn’t built to be an only child, and I missed him terribly… still do.

There are a bunch of human birthdays around here too, and since Mama can’t remember to say so, we wish all of our August friends a very happy birthday.

However, this coming Sunday is a big day for my little sister.   Little Miss Gretchen will be two whole years old!


October 23, 2008

I wasn’t so sure about her when they brought her home, on my birthday-eve, of all days!


Us in Pop's chair, about a year ago

But she grew on me – literally.  She’s a cute little thing, and I do love it when Mama tells me what a wonderful big sister I am…

So happy Dogs on Thursday and everything else!  I’m sure Mama will make us dress up and take lots of photos at some point over the weekend…

    Sissy, dear, you are indeed a wonderful big sister! Give little Gretchie birthday kisses from all of us, and sloppy wet kisses to your mom to help her through a rough week.

    My dogs keep me sane. Some think I must be insane to have so many dogs, but they help me thru the hard times like no human ever has.

  5. Mary Says:

    You are a great sister! Love your photos. Hard to miss the ones we love, but good to know we still have the capacity to love anew.

    great photos! Sis – lucky you you have a wardrobe of tutus to choose from. Momma won’t make you wear real clothing! g

    The puppy picture is funny! Gretchen was so little. It’s nice that Sissy doesn’t like to be an only dog. Nice pictures; Happy Dogs on Thursday!

    I love this post. Odd how so much can happen in the same time frame. Love that look on Gretchen’s face in the last picture.
