Every Puppy Should Have A Boy


I love this quote attributed to Erma Bombeck. So true!


Pictured is my fur-baby and me. Both of us are well beyond the puppy and boy stages of our lives, but both of us remain as inseparable as if we still were.

“Every puppy should have a boy.”

Fur-baby rescued me several years ago, or was it I who rescued her? No matter; we rescued each other.

So here’s to this man’s best friend. I couldn’t imagine not having her in my life.

Positively Puzzling, Vol. 6

This edition of Positively Puzzling begins with a cartography lesson. This is a bit of a double entendre. Since cartography is about the study, making and using of maps, here too we made a map; a puzzle map of Canada and Newfoundland as it looked in 1867. It was interesting to see how our great country looked at the time of Confederation. Much has changed.

This 1500-piece puzzle featured the Coca-Cola Santa Claus. A funny thing that happened one day was when our granddaughter saw the puzzle and exclaimed, “Nana, look! Lots of Opas!” We thought it cute since she has only ever known me bearded. I’ve been called Santa before, but I wonder if Santa has ever been called Opa before. Hmm. 😉

And did you know that the Philistines were almost certainly … Canadian?
