Sunday was MY family reunion.  It was the first time I have  been able to attend.  Of course, I didn't know I was a family member until about eight years ago.  I thoroughly enjoyed it!!  I plan to attend next year also.  So that means we have made two reunions so far - one in May, this one in June.  We have another here in July - crazy Germans.  Don't t  hey know it's HOT this time of year!!  Anyway, there is another in August in Dallas - but it is air conditioned.  Smart Englishmen!

Yesterday, my little SIL called.  Her little Schitz Szu (I don't think that's right, but you know what I mean) was bitten by a rattler.  The border collie was interested, but was able to jump away.  Mickey had to see what it was, and got too close.  He was bitten on the foot.

He was rushed into town (25 miles) that was made in 20 minutes.  He had the snake vaccine before, so I was hoping that all was going to be well.  She called again later telling me that they were going to keep him over night.  This morning she called to tell us he died.

Life is hard up here.

DAMN SNAKES--that is so sad!!! Do they have rattlesnake round-ups in that area? I hate this so much, those little dogs are so darling!!!
