It was last year when our good friends Richard and Gayle's beloved Golden Lab 'Beckham' sadly passed away. They have always had a dog for as long as I have known them which is over forty years. They have been without a best Pal for quite a while now and they were both feeling the increasing emptiness in their hearts. Well, that is until a couple weeks ago. This morning, we three here at the Bunch, went over to meet 'Bubba', R&G's new 4-year-old male Yellow Lab rescue dog. (and he's a very sweet fella) Needless to say, Bubba and Pheebs hit it right off. With them both having gentle souls they are truly a pair of kindred spirits. Richard and Gayle are so happy they were both lit up like a couple Christmas trees and I could easily see Bubba was feeling the exact same way in his new and caring home:)))))

It was a big bright and warmer sunny 48F day. And no icy winds for a change. It was a great day for simply being outside and I made good use of my time doing so. I tackled the clean-up job on our wooden shed. All of our summer yard things are now out of there taking their rightful places around the front, side, and back yards. Next clean-up will be our metal shed. Hauled Kelly's bicycle out of storage so she's all set to rip around the Park again. Forgot to mention that this past Thursday morning Richard spotted 2 Robins in our driveway so those were the first Robins of the year for both of us. Yes, Spring's a-poppin alright.
AND BY GOLLY THERE'S RICHARD HIMSELF OVER THERE

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A fellow nurse at my hospital received a call from an anxious patient. "I'm diabetic and I'm afraid I've had too much sugar today." the caller said. "Are you light-headed?" my colleague asked. "No," the caller answered, "I'm a brunette."
ALL THE ICE IS FINALLY OFF THE POND AND THAT IS THE PARK'S CLUBHOUSE AT UPPER RIGHT
Patient: Doctor, I have a tendency to gain weight in certain places. What would you recommend? Doctor: Stay out of those places!
