It was a great day for a bike ride. I took a seventeen mile urban ride and got passed by something like four or five cars. The greenways were filled with friendly folks taking their new Christmas bikes and puppies out for a first test drive. Holiday nods and smiles were exchanged by all.
All the pets were pleased with their Christmas presents. Nellie, being the baby of the family, was everywhere at once with her nose in each gift bag and tugging at every ribbon and bow. She’s a great help at ripping stuff open.
Sammie is the forgotten middle child. That’s her snarfing down on her holiday catnip fix.
Homie is seventeen now and I’m afraid this may be his last Christmas with us. He spent the day moving creakily from heating pad to scratch pad to sunny spot. He’s definitely slowing down and we continue to do our best to keep him comfortable.
But really, that’s all anybody can ask from anyone. Have a comfortable Christmas!
