What do you get when you play all weekend?


I have been fighting it all week. Went in late on Monday and again on Wednesday. But today, I had to give in. Plus the people I work with pointed to the door when I walked in yesterday. I stayed in my office most of the day so I would not spread my germs. So today, I slept. After feeding the dogs and calling into work, I grabbed a blanket and curled up on the couch. Of course, this was after I took some Tylenol 3s. The dogs and I slept until after noon. Must have been what I needed because I feel 85% better.

Now we are having severe storm warnings in this area of Florida. It is actually 74 and windy outside. Lots of thunder and lightning but no torrential downpours yet. It is pretty normal for this time of here at this time of day but it must be bad if it is being transmitted across the bottom of the tv screen. I actually opened the doors and turned the AC off.

Last night I received an email from someone claiming to be an associate producer from the Animal Planet saying that they were doing a series on dogs called Dogs 101 (or something like that) and said their first episode was going to be on the French Bulldogs. She asked if my dogs did anything amazing or out of the ordinary. Nope, not mine. But I do know a gal in Denver who has 5 French Bulldogs and 3 of them are deaf. 2 of them are therapy dogs and she has won numerous costume contests with them. 2 of them participated in a city wide dog wedding and they also dressed up as Major Nelson and I Dream of Jeannie. So I sent Marleen the email and told her to contact the lady. It must be legit because they presented it to the producers today, Marleen sent pictures and they will be sending a film crew out to Denver in about 2 weeks. I told her she better let me know when it is going to be on. I will sure let you all know. All but one of her dogs are named after french food. You have Biscuit, Bullion, Brie and Bienet (sp).

Gonna try to find something to eat. Stay dry.

Oh how neat. The dog thing, not you being sick! Sorry about that, expected you to read my mind. Glad you are feeling better, glad you didn't stay at work and share the germs and glad you are soon going to be having time with your daughter. I am headed to Texas to have some time with my son while his wife is gone for the weekend. I am so looking forward to it.
Take care and get 100% well soon.
