March 17, 2012 - Happy St. Patrick's Day (take 2)

Well today was totally different than last year, and much better as far as I am concerned. We really didn't do much for St. Patrick's Day, because tomorrow we have been invited over to a friend's home for a corned beef and cabbage dinner. I think it will be nice, as it will be the first time for Jason to get out and socially interact with folks in a home setting. Well, we did have Jason over to dinner a couple of times when we were still at the Fisher House, but that still isn't the same thing.

It actually rained most of the day today, and a couple of times it rained pretty hard, especially for around here. We went over to the pet store, where they hold dog adoptions every Saturday. I think he would have liked to have adopted one of the dogs that was there, but realized it wasn't a good idea, after we talked about it. With the idea of him going in for surgery(ies), sometime in the relative near future, it wouldn't be a good idea to have a puppy around right now. We'll probably just need to wait for a good service dog to come available, at the right time, and then he can get his dog. Would be nice to know when/if the surgeries are to take place, because right now we just don't know.

Because of the rain we stayed inside most of the rest of the day, and didn't do too much. Then again, if we don't do too much the benefit is there isn't too much to clean up afterward. I suspect that tomorrow will be similar, as long as the weather stays the same as today. With that, I'll close and wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Thank you, for all your continued prayers and continuing support.


  1. Hope you have a great time tomorrow!
    Our hope is in the Lord! Praying!
    Romans 15:4, 13 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. (13) Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

    ENJOY the nice company tomorrow and the corned beef and cabbage. I sure missed having that today. I'll just have to make it when I get home.

  4. When you are ready for a new dog, you may want to talk to Ryan at: He's a veteran himself and trains service dogs specifically for veterans and he also trains their owners to train them. He's up here in the Pleasanton/Livermore area but he may be a good resource for you. My daughter and I met him on a Bart ride into the City and he is such a nice guy. He was traveling with his own service/therapy dog and she was soooo sweet.
