Hello. It is clear here in Chester County, PA and promises to be sunny. Yesterday JS ordered the 'Cheval Washed Wood Mirror With Drawer' for her sister's birthday and I am hoping that NS, (the sister) does not read my blog. If so, so much for surprises! I also ordered a tall black distressed cabinet for that Chinois Black Schumacher Wallpaper Bathroom and it will be perfect for that space. A business associate commented that it looked like a coffin standing on end, but divided into three section as it has been designed, it would be the most gruesome coffin in history. I think you get what I am saying. On this day in 2002, in Washington, DC, the remains of the missing Chandra Levy were found in Rock Creek Park. My neighbor Ashley was a true animal lover. She had two huge dogs that she would walk religiously and also worked at the Hickory Springs Kennel here in Chester Springs, PA. Ashley died unexpectedly at home on Saturday, May 16, 2009. She was 23 years old. My thoughts and prayers go to Ashley and all of her family and friends. Sometimes there are just no answers. This weekend many will celebrate Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a United States federal Holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 25 in 2009). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War, it was expanded after WWII to include American casualties of any war or military action. This is probably the least upbeat blog that I have written, aside from Max but it is what it is today! When my Dad visited this past weekend he kept saying that he only asks one question and needs to follow up with 'Questions 2 and 3'. That is all well and good and shows a great amount of caring, but sometimes we don't even get the answer to Question #1. Have a great day, keep loved ones both alive and here in spirit in mind and do the best that you can.
In recognition of Ashley's love for dogs, memorial contributions may be sent to Main Line Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 89, Chester Springs, PA 19425.
