MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Valentine’s Day, 2023

The sky was very patriotic with its faded red, white, and blue hues glowing from the east. The day promises wind, but highs nearing 60 degrees. Tomorrow is forecast with the day rounding out at 61 degrees. Perfect.

Last evening while teaching a Colorado student via Zoom, we had a major incident: Erma surpassed her patience with Deeds. I don’t know what happened but there was an altercation just outside my study that resulted in Deeds crying and running into the study. He was yelping for all it was worth. Immediately, Chief ran to his side and began examining his little shadow, as did Bailey and Harrigan. Harrigan even lowered herself into maternal instincts and was kissing on him. I managed to get hold of the little colonel and held him until he calmed down. I could find no injuries or wet spots on his fur where Erma may have attacked, so I don’t know if he was just startled, or if he was being a big drama queen as reported by his foster mom. LOL. She texted me one day that Deeds and his brother were fighting and Deeds took to his bed crying but seemed to be more dramatic than hurt. I am thinking the same thing. He didn’t seem to be skittish around Erma later in the evening, or this morning.

Today is my baby sister’s 50th birthday. I still recall all the events of that Wednesday in 1973. We brought her home that Saturday morning.

It’s a busy day with some telephone interviews, a Zoom conference at Noon on Grey Gardens which has always fascinated me, Taco Tuesday, and then a late afternoon and full evening of teaching. Col. Deeds follows Erma’s example of being the first to exit past the gate into the living room to be the official greeter.

Make it a great day!
