Not Much Happening

I seem to be getting back into my routine. I compute in the morning then read. Added to this, I now  also listen to our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau about 11 am and Premier Doug Ford about 1 pm.

I do like hearing what they have to say and find them very informative. They both want to keep Canadians safe. The other day, I saw the following posting on Facebook:

I’d rather stay in Quarantine
for the whole Summer,
just as long as I don’t have to bury
one of my family members, kids, or loved ones!

Our current situation is not what I'm sure anyone of us wanted but the above says it all. Thanks Monique. Also thanks to all who post positive on Facebook. Our mental health right now does not need negativity.

Usually about 4 in the afternoon, a gentleman in the next building plays 4-5 songs on his trombone in 3 locations around the 3 buildings as a thank you to all the first responders. I believe he also starts at noon and plays by the hospital and senior resident's in Stratford. What a great thing for him to do.

You all know that I like petting dogs and George would say that I was getting my doggie fix. Well, that has not changed. As the building is filling up, more dogs also arrive, so I continue to meet dogs. Below is a picture of Scooter and Tucker.

Thank you to first responders.
A lady in the first building has been making these and for a donation, we can get one. At last count, there are 7 on my side of the building. She is kept busy doing this. These on all 3 of the buildings.

Today, I was looking forward to the Canadian Snowbirds flying over Stratford but unfortunately, due to the weather, they had to turn back to Trenton. Maybe it will happen tomorrow.

Stay safe.

  1. Glad to hear from you in these strange times. And especially happy you're getting your doggie fixes.

  2. I am enjoying your blog posts. Thank you.

  3. Nice to see you posting. I appreciate the effort. Take care.

  4. I am always happy when I see a post from you. Glad you are doing well and getting your doggie fixes. I have never met an individual who even unknown to you dogs are so smitten and take to you so easily. It takes a very kind and special type of individual to garner such a reaction from pets.

    Be well and stay safe.

  5. Glad to read that you are settling in and keeping safe through these trying times.
    You'll have to add Dog Whisperer to your resume. You've always had that magic touch with them.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  6. Always awesome to hear from you! And a few 'dogie fixes' in times of isolation is a good thing.
    Stay Safe!

  11. Good to hear from you and that you are getting your doggie fixes too. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and life. Stay safe.

  12. Nice to hear from you Suzie, although I am late reading.
    I'm glad you are still getting those doggie fixes. I'm sure you are as anxious as the rest of us to get out on the patio for some sun sitting.
    continue to stay well,

  13. I agree with others and it's nice to see you keeping your hand in. I was just thinking of George again today and what he would have had to say about this Covid thing and the possibility of the border being closed this winter preventing folks from going south. Especially full-timers. All the best to you and stay focused.

  14. Sure miss our happy hours this spring .was a different spring for lot of us snowbirds and we sure will miss it going south .take care Susie

  15. I feel like I am always behind in my reading. Nice to read your update and to hear you are doing well. How nice of the gentleman to share his music and the blue ribbon is certainly a nice touch. Glad to read you are still getting your doggie fixes. Take care.
