Stamp Out Hunger

Saturday, May 11 is the 21st annual postal carriers' "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive -- the largest single-day food drive in the US. Last year they collected over 70 million pounds of food donations. If your letter carrier is participating, please support him or her - place non-perishable food items in bags and leave them by your mailbox before your mail delivery on Saturday. All the food collected goes to your local community food banks and pantries. For more information, go to

Hello Spring!

It's springtime, and on sunny days, my thoughts turn to the outdoors and gardening... with Charlie's assistance of course.  He supervised the roto-tilling...

and the mowing...

and then it was time for a well-earned rest...

Hope you're all having a good spring too!

Happy Birthday, Charlie!

Eight today, he's getting a tiny bit white around the eyes and on his face, and he doesn't jump the backyard terraces quite as much, but Charlie's still the same goofy lovable going-on-2 golden guy.

His special Aunt Karen called with birthday wishes, and we all sang him Happy Birthday together (he joined in). We have some special pink-frosted carob treats from Vancouver Island to celebrate with, and we'll take a special walk, maybe even go for a ride in the car. Then something special for dinner and a brushing - his favorite way to relax in front of the tv.

Happy Birthday, Charlie! I hope you have a ton of fun today!!
