Is anyone out there?

Once again I took Cadie home with high hopes that she could expend some energy in my mother gigantic backyard. This time the weather held, and Cadie had a fantastic romp. She chased sticks, lounged in the long grass and ate and tennis ball, it was everything a little dog could want out of life.

While Cadie was living the good life my mom and I sat on the patio, drinking tea and chatting. She’s been on vacation for the last 2 weeks, which means that she is full of stories about the beach at Port Dover, the sales in the mall, and what the future holds for her. My mom is now about 5 years away from retiring and she is starting to think about a plan. You know the things you will do once you are retired and have all day to sit around and watch day-time television. Since my mother is not even a little bit interested in day-time television, especially since Oprah announced her own retirement, which means that mom needs “a plan” something to do that makes getting out of bed worthwhile.

In the middle of our conversation about her future my mother turned to me and said. “Do you know what would be a great idea? You should start a blog about Cadie.” I gave her a funny look and told her that I am already blogging about Cadie. She tried to laugh it off, but her statement is already out there, and now I have to ask, is anyone reading this?
