Six Word Saturday ~~ Katrin, our 14-year-old poodle
She died in her doctor's office of heart failure. We loved Katrin so very much, Mrs. Jim had "rescued" her from a dying friend.
Some of my other blog posts with Katrin can be found here and here.

My Alphabe-Thursday (5th), the letter "C" — Some places I've been starting with "C" and for ...
"C" is also for some places, countries and cities starting with the letter "C" where I have traveled:
States: (I've been to all 50)
Cairo (saw the sphinx, the pyramids, 'sailed' the Nile River, and rode a camel
Chengdu, China (saw the Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries,)
Canada we liked most everywhere we've been. Montreal and Quebec City rated high with us as did British Columbia and the Yukon Territory.
Here are four of my favorite pictures from our 2010 Quebec City visit.
(and a link to my two posts: http://jimmiehov.blogspot.com/search/label/Quebec%20City)
Croatia we've visited twice, one a weekend in Dubrovnik with our daughter and grand-daughter, KP. Dubrovnik for tourists is the quaint little old red roofed walled city on the Adriatic Sea, across from northern Italy. Of course it has grown a lot in modern times outside of the old walls.

The Croatia we visited later was a stop at Split while on a Princess cruise from Venice to Istanbul on into the Black Sea over to Yalta, Ukraine and then back to Athens, Greece. We made stops nearly each day at other ports.
