Subject: Retirement Information Request

To whom it might concern:

My dog and I will not be renewing our certification this year.

Adi, the dog, is now 16 years old and has two major problems which make it hard for her to visit. First, she is VERY hard of hearing. Second, she has severe arthritis in her back legs.

I would like to have her classified as being retired if that is possible for us.

Dog: Adi
Breed: Tri-color Beagle, a female
Age: 16

Co-team member: James Hov... (me)
ID #: 51...

When we first started my wife, (Mrs. Jim) was also certified with Adi. Due to her having many other volunteer responsibilities she was unable to continue with Pet Partners. She was active though, while a member. Mostly she and Adi tutored reading students who needed help.

Wife, former co-team member:  (Mrs. Jim -- ID # 51...)

Additionally, I do thank you for the certificate you sent of in appreciation of our work together, Adi and me. It was for nine years of service. Thank you very much.

Lollipops, Lily Pads, and Laxatives — My Alphabe-Thursday — "L" — Things in a Row — Two Questions — MidWeek Blues

"L" is for LolliPops, Lily Pads, and Laxative Pills and Potients.


Things I didn't get a picture of?   KP with her Lollipop.
When I went to the bank, at the drive in window, the teller there offered and gave KP a Lollipop. KP was very proud of that Lollipop.
The large 'all day sucker' type Lollipops on the stand were at the Dilan's Candy Bar
candy shop in the Galleria Mall in Houston.  KP wasn't there, neither was Mrs. Jim or Karen, so I came out of that store with only the pictures.  No candy.
I took the pillar sales pole picture for Pat of Thursday's Things in a Row as well as being an "L" word, but she is out this Thursday on holiday.
[click on any picture for a larger sized view].....
Things I didn't get a picture of? KP feeding the fishes, turtles, and ducks.
We went to the 'park.'  KP loves to go to the park.  To her that means a playground park.  Our park has a little playground that passes her test. 
I did get this nice picture of the Lily pad in the park.  That is what we call them, Mrs. Jim and I, with the flower being a water Lily.  Technically they are Yellow Water Lily, Mexican Water Lily, or Nymphaea Mexicana.
Another picture I didn't get?  Yes, there was (not) one.  A couple of weeks ago when I was playing golf with the guys, my ball went in a little pond.  And guess what?  My ball was sitting on a large floating Lily pad
But no picture, my camera was in the golf cart over on the cart path.  [In the pictures below, note the pond's water in the little half moon window.]
"L" is for Laxative. For my semi-annual cardio checkup yesterday I had to give a blood sample, take a stress test while waking and running on the treadmill, and have my body's arteries checked by sonogram. 
I passed all three tests but not exactly with a perfect score. But pretty good considering. The Laxative? It went along with no food after midnight, etc, parts.
— The display sales post full of all day suckers was posted here especially for Pat's Things in a Row. .But she is absent.  So ... ?  (Enjoy it anyway.)
— I posted for Alphabe-Thursday 'L' assignments with Miss Jenny at the head of the class. You can find her by clicking here.
Nothing solid for MidWeek Blues this week but most all pictures have a smattering of blue (blue sky counts).  Click the here for more.
Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
- - - -
My Two Questions for this week (you can answer just one if you wish):

1. What is your Lollipop story?  Everyone has one.
2. What is your Lily pad tale?

Bonus Question: Rumored possible government regulation of Laxatives, what would be any possible benefit of that be to you?

Always sad he wasn't the real thing, only Oscar remained, rejoicing.
The genuine wood chairs floated away with the transition to Global Warming.

In Global Warming the Polar Ice Caps will all melt, the seas will rise many feet, and the waterfronts will all be flooded (Wikipedia link).  Some people do not believe this will happen.
