Tuesday April 6

Another warm, sunny, polleny day ... a golden haze over everything ... AM run, Ginger and the rest energy filled, down the hill we go, Ginger trotting at my left side, the others ranging around us, Banshee again heads for the chinaberry cave ... and emerges covered in yellow, coated in pollen sticking to her damp fur... Snoopy chases balls, DB runs to the back fence, Ginger explores the ditch, then back up to the trailer for meds, get food, feed and kennel, go to work... half day in Saluda (driving through the back roads, kicking up clouds of pollen) back at lunch time... dogs greet me with great excitement, go inside, Ginger springs up from the couch and just about knocks me over in enthusiasm... she's home! in the middle of the day!! Yes, it means extra eggs! This is my day for pet therapy with Banshee, I collect her and put her in car, DB tries to come with us, husband stops working and holds DB and Banshee and I go to the nursing home, where it's so good to see our friends, people and dogs ... who are all in Ginger's fan club and ask after her ... return home after pet therapy (with a side trip to buy dog food, and update the SuperPtez girls on Ginger, who is a well loved customer) then back home, by this time I'm so overwhelmed by pollen I have to lay down (our bedroom has an air purifier) after greeting Ginger, Damcat and the rest ... up again, into my mowing outfit, it's cooler now, take the dogs for a good evening run, Ginger again trotting by my left side, around and around the trees (I'm trying to keep the vetch from climbing up the young trees) then back up the hill for supper, feed and kennel, bring Ginger in for meds and ground turkey .... she is very energetic, keeps wanting to go out (now that its cooler and not as polleny), so I sit on the porch with her, counting stars .... another good day for my sweet red dancing girl, thank you Lord, and thank you all for your prayers and support, without which none of this would be possible.
