The weekend...

Today was a pretty good day. The girls and I got ready and headed to church this morning. After church, we had a little family get together because the girls are both going to be gone this week. Nana and Papa had to come say goodbye and so did Uncle Kenny. After saying "bye~bye" to Buggy, we had a little barbecue. After that we went swimming, which was much needed on a hot day like today. After swimming, I headed to the grocery store with Peanut, because she and I are leaving tomorrow for Western Nationals *for softball* in Milwaukie. When I came home from the store, Buddy our younger dog was out in the driveway and Peanut and I were looking around to make sure he didn't get under the rig. In so doing, I ran over Tisha, our older dog. To hear that squeal from her was horrendous. I screamed to Peanut to go get her dad and I ran for Tisha. She made it to the garage, but her leg was badly cut and she wasn't moving it or putting weight on it. I kept screaming for Peanut to get Jeff, I didn't know what to do, but hold her and tell her I was sorry. Jeff came out and he looked her over with me, we were able to clean up her leg and bandage it. Jeff then decided to cut the doggie door bigger so Tisha could get out. Our siding doesn't look that nice right now, but anything for the doggie. I feel so badly. It is devastating. I am praying that this isn't the thing that puts her over the edge. She is 15 years old and she is getting tired, hard of hearing, blindish, and a little on the slow side. So please pray for my doggie, we love her so much.

Saturday night was the "faster Pastor" event at the Douglas County Speedway. It was a fun time. I really have never been to the races, I know, I have lived here how long and haven't been? But, it was exceptionally rewarding. While watching the pastor's race, the first heat, one car flipped upside down, the second heat; one car left the race early, and the third heat, was our great Pastor Jon *aka sermonnutter* he tried to take out the car next to him! Woo Hoo!

Friday night was the social night for my 20th class reunion. It was at Splitz *aka Ten Down Bowling*. It was a lot of fun. I didn't choose to go to the event on Saturday night, but what fun!!

I will look forward to my next one.

These are some of my friends, Kelli~Cherie~Brandon

Did the Kelly that is in the picture with you ever go to school in Myrtle Creek? She sure looks familiar. Looks like you had a nice time at your reunion. Mine is coming up soon.

So sorry to hear about your dog. I hope she is going to be okay.
