The blog is back in real time today. No flashbacks, no reblogs from six years ago.
Penny, the Golden Doodle, looks at the baby Charles and remembers when she was the center of attention.
Perhaps I should have made this a wordless Wednesday or a
You Write the Caption.
(And not sure what cousin Anna is doing )
With a new baby in the house, Penny seeks reassurance and is probably wondering when baby Charlie will be leaving. It’s an adjustment .
My daughter Laura , (the new mother) shot this quick moment today as I was getting up.
You saw Penny’s paw included in the new family handshake a couple posts ago.
Here she is photobombing during the first bath the other day
The night Charles was born, I brought a cloth diaper from the hospital so she could get his scent. Little did she know how life would change.
On the front porch with the human members of the family. Sorry Penny.
P.s. Tomorrow after this posts, my DIL will tell me Henry the Airedale is upset because he isn’t featured or included on the blog.
Thanks V for the idea to blog Penny and Grandma
Laura noticed a box of Junior Mints (mailed right in their original box) in a post she saw on Pinterest!
Now I have a Pinterest account but don’t really know what to do with it but she saw the mailing of the box of candy, the size you might have gotten at a movie theatre years ago.
Slap a label on it and head to the Post Office and they didn’t blink an eye. Just asked if the contents were hazardous, liquid, flammable or fragile? There is a whole listing at Pinterest of fun things to mail.
(It reminded me of when her brother Mark sent her a coconut from Hawaii when he was stationed in USMC. A coconut with stamps!)
By the way, Laura told me on the phone tonight that eating Malted Milk Balls gives her the chills, like fingernails on the blackboard, the texture of them makes her cringe.
But she remembers it was the candy of my choice when I was in high school. A good friend and I could’ve choked to death, loading our mouths with them, seeing how many we could fit in at once. Seriously.
I tasted a couple tonight and the coating tasted a bit like I imagine car wax to taste and the inside seemed a bit stale, dry and sandy and less enjoyable or flavorful as I remember loving malted milk balls. My taste buds must have changed.
But they were fun to receive and shake the box and think about her mailing them to me right in the box! Thanks for the fun in the mail, Laura. A terrific post holiday pick-me-up!
Happy Birthday Laura Christine.

Fleeting- lasting for a very short time.
Laura’s 21st birthday.
We stopped in Klavon’s Ice Cream Parlor , originally a Pharmacy in the 1920’s, in the Strip District -Pittsburgh, on Saturday afternoon. (You might remember Laura as a bride last November and then the recent wedding photos 6 months later.)
The proprietor held a candle for her as she blew it out. Aunt Mary looked on. A fleeting moment.
For past challenges I have listed everyone and then some pingbacks were getting sent to their spam.
I will add the ones I have received so far and hopefully none go to their spam.

Happy Birthday Laura. You are a wonderful daughter.
