Who's Journey? I was born in 1950. When music kicked in for me it was Elvis, Ricky Nelson, Brenda Lee and Connie Francis. And then the Beatles arrived in America and for the longest time, it was Ringo. I was 13 years old and let me tell you, I was one of those girls who just fell apart when I saw him on Ed Sullivan.
Then I fell in love with John Lennon. By the time he started producing music on his own, unbelievably beautiful music like Imagine...well I was all grown up (I thought) and I could appreciate him for the musical genius he was.
I was 21 years old the year that song was released. I think most people who knew me then would tell you I was in my hippie stage. Hair down to my waist. Guru blouses and bell bottoms. LOL
I'm 58 years old now. And still, I cannot hear that song without crying. I miss John Lennon.
I know. I'm so old.
But more importantly, did you see Sasha tonight? The adorable shih tzu who was the sidekick of the second contestant on American Idol? I can't remember the contestant's name, although I remember she was very pretty, but she made the mistake of bringing Sasha, her shih tzu with her. Sasha stole the show, but even she couldn't hide the fact that her mommy just could not sing.
Simon likes little doggies. That makes me like Simon even more.
Sasha is a fake, people. She's a fake.
That adorable little dog was my Chelsea! Oh, I kid. But surely you saw what an adorable dog the shih tzu is.
Chelsea got a HUGE reprieve today. She had a grooming appointment this morning. So Rob puts Chelsea on the leash and off they go. And twenty minutes later Rob and Chelsea walk back through the door and I'm thinking, huh?
Apparently Chelsea's regular groomer, Robin (her breeder) is out for surgery, which we knew. But her stand-in, Phyllis, who was all set to go, got bitten by a cat this morning. The cat bit her so hard, they had to take Phyllis to the ER...because get this...the poor cat broke a tooth off into Phyllis's hand. Good grief.
I'm sure Chelsea couldn't care less. She got out of her most hated thing ever - a spa day. I swear, if I didn't know it for sure, I'd doubt Chelsea was a girl.
Shih tzus are wonderful little dogs. If you ever want a dog that's just amazing with little children you want a shih tzu.
There's no way I'd have an iffy dog around Cameron and Avery. No way. She adores both of them and as sweet as my grandchildren are, Chelsea takes quite a bit of abuse. Little children are rough. Chelsea's a smart dog and has learned how to dodge the worst of it. But mostly, she's just a big baby herself and I can't imagine her being snappy or snarly with my grandchildren.
Not to worry. I'm very aware that Chelsea is a dog, an animal, and I'm not stupid. If I ever saw the slightest sign that she might hurt Cameron or Avery, well, it would kill me, but the choice would be very simple.
Barbie just doesn't think that deeply. Right now, she's so happy in her new pink woolly coat, she couldn't care less about anything other than the fact that she's barefoot. Really, some Jimmy Choo Heather Patent Boots would make her very happy.
Really, check out those boots. They're on sale. LOL
