3. I was driving on our old street to get to Kate's school when I saw our old neighbor's family outside. I pulled over to say hello. The family was there cleaning the house out and then they informed me Kenn, our old neighbor friend, had died. We had some good memories with Kenn. We lived next door and he, being a lonely older man, would visit every day--sometimes 2-3 times a day! Yah, no kidding! He loved being around kids and he would bring over all kinds of treats to spoil their appetites. When we moved over to our new house we had him over for dinner until his health deteriorated and he was put in the care center. My favorite thing about him was that he loved most of my cooking and I never heard him speak ill of anyone--ever!
The family asked if I wanted anything from the house. I wasn't going to but I did speak up about this chair. It was the one I would sit in when we went over to visit him. It had a nice rounded back and was low to the ground so I felt it was custom made for my short legs. I know there was a cool story behind this chair--like it was specially made and imported from somewhere but I don't remember exactly! Darn it. Could you all send in your submissions and make a good story up for me?
5. Life with dog is getting better. She learned quickly to sleep through the night--much quicker than a newborn. She's giddy to see us in the morning and lavish us with her love, also when we come home from anywhere. I guess that's the universal appeal of having a dog. Would you believe she loves classical music. Really, she seems to be calmer and sleep more when I have it quietly playing in the background. That's the magic of Mozart for you. Imagine what it must do for humans.
