Time to Use the Treadmill
Besides our grandson Aidan
graduating k-garten last week, Steve and I learned something very important
about our Chihuahua Lucky.

Lucky had to stay indoors-save going out to do her business. Let’s face it-I didn’t want to brave 115 to

Our self-imposed prison sentence
started the end of May and our release date was the end of September. I used the treadmill. Lucky put on 1-1/2 pounds! It was a bummer for both of us.

Enjoy your families and see you next
