Pretty boys wear red

One happy boy
London, ON
October 2016
Thank you all for your kind comments and email messages in recent days. As you can tell, it's been somewhat quiet on the blog here in recent weeks. As much as I love writing here on a regular basis, a rare convergence of lots of work at work, lots of work at home and a nasty cold that flattened me for a good long while forced me to take a break from the keyboard for a bit. I simply needed to get better, and something had to give in the interim.

I appreciate your good wishes, and realize how lucky I am to be surrounded by so many people who care. Which is why I thought this photo would be especially appropriate. I took it yesterday afternoon, after Frasier had been lovingly groomed by the only groomer he's ever had, Jean. I had just gotten him back in the car, and we were headed home. It's become something of a tradition for me to take a post-grooming pic and send it home.

Today was the first day I was feeling well enough to get out and do much of anything. And considering I had delayed his original appointment because I wasn't well enough last week to get out of the house, I felt this picture would serve nicely as a return-to-normal-life milestone. Doesn't he look sweet?

Thematic will return at 7 p.m. Eastern - tonight! - what a new theme. Thanks, everyone, for your patience and support.

Phew! glad all is fine.. Yes he looks very handsome,,,,btw even tho u are on the mend, the next time u start feeling under the weather suck on a zinc lozenge-- it will boost your immune system and u will feel less yucky... its been proven.. echinacea has taken a backseat to zinc. :-)

Good to see you back, sorry for your cold - a really bad one is hell! And Fraser is a lovely dog!

Doesn't extra work ALWAYS coincide with a cold???
