We were just starting to pack the car this morning when jebra's cellphone rang. It was his brother, asking if we were aware of his wife's mother's medical situation. No, we weren't. As it turns out, she's in hospice and is not expected to last much longer. This being the case, our visit down to Indiana will be postponed for a few weeks. My reaction: sorrow for my sister-in-law, neice and newphews, and happy for not having to spend any nights away from home.

Also in the good news category, this means we can go to SEMGS*! It'll be at dizzi_d's and the theme is pot pie. Yummm! And best of all -- doggies! dizzi_d posted a video of them playing yesterday and I bet he won't mind if I share the URL.

*South-East Michigan Gluttony Society. Since 1987, the group gathers on the first Saturday of the month for Friends, Conversation, and Stupid Amounts of Food.

I'm so sorry about your relative.

But the dogs were cute :o) My two play like this, although it looks a little different with one being a wire haired Dachshund and the other a black Labrador! There's much snarling and growling going on. They have a great time, but it scares the wits out of visitors who think they're fighting :o)

I'd love to see photos (or video!) of your dogs. I went to the animal shelter today, to donate more of my catmint-stuffed felt fish, and had a grand old time checking out all the cats and dogs up for adoption. I so wanted to bring one or two back to the office with me. Especially when I found the cage with two brindle part-mastiff, part german shepherd, part who-knows-what puppies.

I'll try and sort something out. They *are* very cute sometimes. The Dachsy has large ears that flap when he runs sometimes and the Lab has this snooty air that Labs just do. He's completely brainless, but adorable!

I can't go to shelters, I'd end up bringing the lot home. I can't believe what screw ups people are sometimes.

Yep, there sure is. Please tell me you can make it, as I have a huge stash of plastic bags (and a few medicine bottles) to give you for the animal shelter.

Speaking of which, I donated another 16 catmint-stuffed toys to the Michigan Humane Society this afternoon. Now I'm wishing I'd saved one for your kids. *Thinks* I have a wee bit of catmint left, and some wool... I bet I could whip one together tomorrow morning if you'll be there.

So sorry to hear about Jebra's brother's mother-in-law (did I get that right?)

Lol @ the dogs. When I had 2 cats they used to play like that. Except theirs was a little more vicious.

Yes, that's exactly right, jebra's brother's mother-in-law.

Our cats play like that too. There usually isn't any hissing, but growling is common and they sure don't pull their punches when they whap another.
