“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

Today is beautiful, warmish and sunny. A few clouds dot the blue. My street is quiet though earlier I did hear the sound of a basketball bouncing on the pavement. I woke up after 10. When I opened the door to go get my papers, I saw a package from Amazon on the steps, and my papers on top of the box, thanks to my mailman.

Today is President’s Day, a celebration of Washington’s Birthday. It used to be on February 22nd but was moved to the third Monday in February. Many states celebrate Presidents’ Day, by moving the apostrophe they celebrate not one but all the presidents.

This week is February school vacation around here. I used to travel to Europe for the week. One year, my mother and I went to Italy, mostly to Rome and a few days in Florence. We walked all over. My favorite was the forum. We spent hours there. Every night, my mother and I sat in the lobby by the tiny bar in our hotel for a nightcap. Those nights are a favorite memory.

Tomorrow is a field trip day. My friends and I are driving down to P-town for a late lunch or an early dinner, take your pick. P-town is quiet this time of year.

I left a few items off my shopping delivery, one being critical, toilet paper. Looks like I’ll have to step into an actual grocery store, one of the big ones, like A&P. That’s another field trip.

Henry started his medication yesterday. He is taking a single clonidine tablet to start. If Henry needs more, we go up a tablet at a time. He has another medication should this one not work. He will always take medication. According to the vet,”Your dog will always have “special needs”, and management will always be necessary. “I’m fine with that. I want my Henry to be happy and less fearful of his world.

    Hi Kat,

    Interesting, a special needs dog. Every time I think of special needs kids and now dogs, I have to remind myself that all kids and dogs are special. If you have a special needs kid they give you a poem about planning a trip to Rome but instead landing in Holland. A very stupid poem written to make special needs new parents feel better. It doesn’t work.

    Today was nearly 80 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Thank goodness the AC is on to lower the humidity. Tomorrow there’s a 50% chance of rain with a high in the mid 50s. .

      Hi Bob,
      They think Henry wasn’t socialized when he was a puppy. He is quite jumpy with sudden sounds and new people. I was given ways to help him be less afraid as well as the medication.

      Today was in. the high 40’s, a heat wave. The cold will be back by Thursday. So far, February has been warmer than usual.
