Hi Im a happily married lady of 57 years old. Together we have 4 children and 4 grandchildren. Im working as a charge nurse in a nursing home here in town. I love my extended family there too. My other family includes Miss Tippy Toes who is a 2 year old Dachshund, Australian Shepherd mix who talks to me all the time. She has been with us since she was 10 weeks old. She is very verbal. At times it sounds like she says Come on Mama. Also present and accounted for is Mr. Whiskers Dooly. He is a very cute little guy who is also Dachshund mix but with terrier. I inherited him when he was 7 weeks old from one of my grandsons who could no longer keep him. When I got him his name was Porkchop......well that had to go He developed chin whiskers....thus his name and the Dooly just happened because of his personality. He is most loving and hates to hear his "Daddy" sing. If my husband sings to him first he jumps up on him and licks him on the lips and if he doesnt stop then Dooly covers Daddys mouth with his neck. It is very funny to see. My husband is with then all the time as he is on disability retirement. We found he had prostate cancer and had the prostate removed. During that time his kidneys shutdown and during a scan to check the plumbing hookup we discovered by accident a large cancer in his right kidney. The kidney also had to be removed. He got so depressed he was no longer able to work. He has taken over role of housewife and I work. This is working out great and he is doing so much better.
I very much enjoy the Thrifty emails I receive. I hope they continue for a long time.
