    Katie, Scruffy was a Coton de Tulear. We had not heard of the breed before we adopted him. Had to look it up on the internet. He was mostly white with tan ears. Similar in appearance to a cockapoo or maltese.

    I hope everyone is staying safe from the storm. Regarding pet loss: my picture is of Scruffy who came to live with us when he was 3 years old. He was suppose to be my DD's dog but when she began 9 years of school to become a veterinarian Scruffy became my constant buddy. He passed away January of 2017 from cancer at the age of 15. We moved in September of 2017 from the house Scruffy had spent his whole life in with us. After we moved I had a recurring dream that Scruffy was at the door and couldn't get in. His ashes are in a small box in our china cabinet along with his favorite toy. The dream stopped after I took the box of ashes, went to each door of the new house and brought him through it and explained where we were. It was like he needed to know where we lived and how to get in. I have not had that dream since. This and a past experience with a horse we lost has convinced me that these animal friends never really leave us. I like knowing that Scruffy is always here.

    I was able to sign in on the computer after the "upgrade" but have not gotten on with the tablet yet. Hope everyone stays safe from the storm. We don't have hurricanes so can't imagine what that's like. Thinking of you who are in the path of the storm.

    They so badly need rain in the west to help with the wildfires. Sometimes I wonder what God is thinking. Daughter recently moved to Redding, California, really bad timing. She feels like the city is on fire.

    Our House (Part Three)

    For those of you thinking about downsizing we did that last summer. We sold our large house we had been in for 25 years. This house had a very large walk in storage area upstairs off the play room and when you have that kind of storage it's easy to just put things in there cause there's always room, extra furniture, holiday decorations, toys, craft supplies, yarn and the beanie babies. It was a big job to clean that out. The attendants in the Goodwill drop off lane were becoming my new best friends. We took so much stuff there. In fact sometimes they would see our stuff in the car and ask to meet us around back so they could take some of it. We also had a 4 car garage and used one space for stuff. I swear some of those things had not been seen since we moved in 25 years ago. Thank you for I've Got Junk. One truck load left that way. As I started the process I would be on the phone with my son asking what he wanted and what I could donate. I think for every 10 items I asked about one could go and 9 had to stay. So we moved several boxes of stuff to our current home marked save for Aaron. Mind you Aaron lives with his wife in a one bedroom condo in Honolulu. He has no room for this stuff and it would cost a small fortune to ship it to him. That's an issue to be address in the future. For now each time we go to visit him (a couple times a year) I take something from one of his boxes. My daughter has a much easier time parting with stuff unless it's a book. She has never had a book she didn't want to keep. This kind of makes me sound like a hoarder which I'm not. Even though we had a lot of stuff none of it was garbage and it wasn't crowded because the house was large with lots of storage. Anyway, I compare downsizing to menopause, It doesn't happen overnight, its a long process. Since we are now renting a house while we decide where we really want to live next I try not to buy anything unless we can eat it. Don't want anymore stuff to move than we already have. Patty
