I was there at 10:00 a.m. when they opened, to renew my membership. I got the dates mixed up as it wasn’t due until Nov. 1, but I went ahead and paid another year. Specifically went to get Biotin, a supplement I take to keep my hair and nails healthy, and found they don’t carry it, at least for now. Their stock items are always changing. Other than that I wanted to get their Spicy Artichoke-Jalapeno dip, which is really dynamite. It comes in a pretty big container so I will have to find someone to share it with. I got a 40# bag of dog food, and I’m glad my arms are getting stronger!
I browsed the books and found a couple I nearly put into the cart until I remembered I can’t read very well :~( One book was about dogs and covers the pack mentality, etc. I was intrigued to read a short paragraph, “What do dogs really want?”, and found the answer to be “They want to be with other dogs.” That made me feel really sad because I’m sure Lady would like to be around other dogs once in a while, but I don’t trust her enough to bother with it.
She is a dominant female but gets along with most, but not all, male dogs. Some females are ok as long as they aren’t extremely dominant; I have seen the result of a couple of fights with the dog next door to us in NC. The dogs that came to visit the neighbors were all intimidated by their dog, so I know it wasn’t just Lady.
She has a particular problem as well with small yappy dogs, whose best defense is a good offense. They start posturing, barking, and challenging, and Lady is ready to react. So apologies to all those with little dogs (probably most RVers), but I keep my big girl away from them. Lady was about 2 years old when I got her so I don’t know anything about her early life or training or experiences, and I don’t take any chances. I see her look longingly at big male german shepherds and wish I could socialize her, but at this stage it isn’t likely to happen in our present situation. Back in the mountains, she found a huge black lab who lived up the mountain, and when he came down to find her I could never get her back home until she decided to return.
If and when my eyes improve I am going back to find that book!
I bought two bottles of Gewurztraminer wine, and the eyes didn’t even have to look to be able to open up one of those bottles. I’m enjoying a glass now. And I bought a pair of tights that are really pretty, made in USA, and comfortable. I don’t think I would be happy with mid-rise tights, especially if I want to use them for exercising. Can anyone tell me why they make any women’s pants in mid-rise?
It’s 99F at 4:30 pm, so it’s a good bet it will top the century mark today. I am really tired of this weather.
Tomorrow my darling granddaughter, Ara, turns 21! I didn’t give her too much advice (just a little) about drinking too much. What kind of a celebration is it to get so hammered you spend a big part of the evening throwing up and feel like hell the next day. I’ll never understand it.
