Settling In

The  main reason I'm here at Laury's is to take care of her pets while she is working short-term government contracts. So, it's very important that Lucie settle in and get along with her dog, Dali and her petite cat, Sam. As you can see, Lucie is already feeling right at home.  As is her habit, she's found a comfy place on the back of Laury's sofa and has settled in for a long nap. She and Dali have sorted out their relative positions in the 'pack' and seem to be doing just fine. Sammie Cat, however, has been a little bit more reluctant to accept Lucie as part of the family. She's spent most days since we've been here sleeping under the covers on Laury's bed only venturing out when it's time to eat. I think she's beginning to get used to Lucie, tho. She doesn't growl and hiss at her anymore and as long as she's up high and Lucie can't reach her, Sam is perfectly content to watch the dog antics below. I think given a few more days, all the animals will settle in nicely. We'll all be one happy dog/cat/American/French family!

  1. I'm loving reading your blogs, as is Beth. There really hasn't been much significant mail to send you yet, but as soon as the absentee voting stuff come, I'll send...

    We're heading to Chico this weekend to another wedding... 2 weeks ago we attended one in Bodega Bay and it was refreshing (weather reference as well as spiritual)...

    I had to have a tooth pulled last Monday from a tooth that was cracked to the root. It took 2 hours of yanking to get everything out, and I'm still feeling the effects. Oh well...

    Dad was to drive to Arizona today, this being Friday. Then he drives to Georgia, but I'm not sure when exactly. What is he going to do when he grows up! I tease him with this very comment...

    Well, love to you and your dreams... this is great...

    Love,
    Jim
