For some reason Kerby looked much shaggier this time than usual, but he sure cleaned up nicely as did Gizmo! Lately they have been going on Sundays to Danielle, but this time it went an extra day to Monday, but I don’t think an extra day made a shag difference. Kerby, having a light-colored coat, gets dirty looking so quickly it is always nice to see him clean again but it only lasts for a day or so. Continue reading Grooming day. John quick visit.

Off to the printer. Dogs to grooming.

Finally, the newsletter went to the printer – UPS on E Dunlap Ave – this morning. I felt sorry for the manager, though, because he was alone in the shop today and my newsletter project was complex. In addition to the normal routine (inside and outside covers in color, all else inside in black and white), I also had a two sided insert (one side color, the other black and white), another two sided insert (both sides black and white), and a one sided insert in black and white. It started out OK, but then his main computer locked up and would not handle the project. He switched to his secondary computer and got one copy of everything printed OK. I left at that point.

Supper tonight was an impromptu affair. As we getting ready to leave the pool Elaine mentioned something about getting supper ready; I  knew she had set some fish out to thaw. But she seemed tired, so I suggested we go out to dinner instead. She quickly agreed! Agnes Volk had mentioned Los Compadres, a Mexican restaurant down on Northern that I used to go to when I worked at Wood Patel nearby but have not been to for a few years. So I thought we should give it a try, since Elaine had never been there. We were happy with our meal and, of course, brought about half home as leftovers. She had a Chicken Fajita, I had a Machaca Relleno. both good. And we both had a margarita. Continue reading Los Compadres. Dogs groomed. Tablet keyboard. Royal Palm news.

We’ve got a couple of slick boys tonight. Kerby and Gizmo were groomed today, and they are no longer shaggy and look like they have each lost 1-3 pounds. But that was all fluff. We are very happy with the job Danielle and crew do at the Pet Club store at 19th Ave and Northern. What is especially good for us is that Kerby and Gizmo like her and do not fight going to her salon. And she does a very good job of looking for potential problems such as Kerby’s lumps and bumps. They weigh each dog each  time and let us know what they weighed in at. And, they are a lot of fun to talk to. A very lively place. Continue reading Grooming day. Coax start. New webs.
