My day started out, just horrible, the big visiting dogs killed one of my cats during the night. I found Ruby dead in the back yard, the dogs had attacked her when they were here before so she has stayed away from them but I guess she thought it was safe to prowl a bit at night and they caught her. We buried her in my pet cemetery (flower bed) and had to keep going. She has been with me about 7 years, Lonna rescued her on highway 71 in front of Ruby Tuesdays and brought her to me. I will really miss her because she was the house cat, just visiting out doors when she wanted; was fed indoors and spent time in my bathroom, the utility room, in the dryer, on my toilet and on my computer. The owners of the two dogs had requested that we keep the dogs for a year or so and that little killing spree let me know that I could not expose my animals to their "play".
It is a beautiful day today but I have not spent a lot of time outdoors, I locked the dogs in the house and let my baby goats spend time climbing the trees in the back yard and I did hang out a wash. I thought I had hired a man to do my yard work today but he did not show. I made a mistake to giving him the option of coming today or Tuesday. I needed it done today. He is a homeless man living at Soul's Harbor Mission.
I spent some time on Book TV: Bill Clinton's university Global Initiative, Arkansas History and really enjoyed Carla Killough McClarffrey reviewing her book on George Washington. I immediately went to her website to learn more about this Arkansas Woman. I am going to re listen to the Bill Clinton video because I need to glean more info from it. Great ideas from a great man. Mark Christ was another Arkansas writer that I heard on the book tv.
I visited a new vet this week and after interviewing her I may start letting her see my dogs, now and then.
