Murdo Girl…As the world turns

I wrote this a few days ago before our world took a sudden turn. Kip suffered a heart attack early yesterday morning. He is now recovering nicely after having surgery to put two stents in.

We are so blessed to have an amazing support group consisting of family and dear friends who continue to reinforce our belief that God is good all the time. We love you all and truly appreciate your prayers.


My pets were feeling a little left out


I’m a cat whose at her best when she’s allowed to get her rest.

I’ve never even seen a mouse. They serve gourmet food in this house.

I only move when nature calls or when I cough on cat hair balls.

I know that might sound gross to you, but that’s just what cats do.

I have a large litter box

Lately, I’ve been so tired I haven’t felt at all inspired.

I usually do what I choose, but now I’ve got the COVID blues.


Here I am in my usual spot I have to share, though I’d rather not.

I just moved into this place, and I really hate sharing my space.

There are some super good offsets. My humans really love their pets.

We go for walks but I say sheesh! I have to wear a stupid leash.

I have a yard where I can play and I get bones three times a day.

I don’t hang out with the cat. She likes to use her paw to bat.

She’s only hit me once or twice but that cat isn’t very nice.

Would you please give her this news. I also have the COVID blues.


Ready to go RVing

We little Cockers don’t get upset unless they take us to the vet.

We’ve been here longer than both of them. We think they cause too much mayhem.

We try our best to social distance, and wear mutt masks per the scientist’s insistence.

Smart dogs usually come in twos. They don’t catch the COVID blues.

      Thanks, Patti… Kip is supposed to rest this week and start rehab next week. He’s already feeling a lot better. Our best to you and Jim.
