A Day at Mary Todd

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Hope this finds you having a PAWS-atively perfect day! Once again, sorry I have been a bit slow in writing in my journal. You should see my "To-Do" list. It gets longer every day. We have been traveling, writing, and enjoying March Madness! Everyone knows how much Chloe and I love sports! I have also been a bit slow since we had some trouble with our email. By the way, if you tried emailing us and it was bounced back to you or you didn't receive a reply, send it over again!

Last Thursday our family spent the day at Mary Todd Elementary in Lexington. Mary Todd is located right off North Broadway and though nobody ever said for sure, I am certain it gets the name from Mary Todd, as in Mary Todd Lincoln, the wife of President Abe Lincoln. She was from Lexington, you know!

It was a perfect day! You could feel the energy in the building. For one thing, the Kentucky Wildcats were playing in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Almost everyone, including Chloe and me, had on their Wildcat blue! Unfortunately, the Wildcats lost - or came in second as we like to think. Even though we were sad, it didn't spoil our day. Nothing could have spoiled it! Everyone made us feel right at home! Ms. Campbell and Ms. Carroll (last photo) planned the perfect day and evening! We hope to see everyone at Mary Todd again soon!

I better say ARFF for now. Today is a busy day and I want to chop away at my list. Besdies, it is raining outside and it's a perfect day for a game of checkers or Old Maid. I will write later - promise! In the meantime, Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

Trouble With Email

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Chloe and I wanted to let you know that our email hasn't been working for the past week or so. We just found out about it this past Friday. It was tough to figure out because we were getting some of our email while other emails were being sent back to the sender.

We are so sorry about this problem. The minute we found out about it, we contacted the people in charge and they were Speedy Gonzales and fixed it on the spot!

If you tried to email us last week or so and it wouldn't work, try again. Everything is up and running!

Thanks so much! I will be sure to tell you all the neat things we have been doing soon! In the meantime, "Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!"

A Snowstorm in March!

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Once again I have to apologize for not writing in my journal sooner. Where does the time go? As usual, our family has been busy with lots of exciting events.

Last week our family spent four days at Kentucky Crafted: The Market. It is one of our most favorite events of the year. We see our old friends and make new ones too. (I always say that, but making new friends is my favorite part of being the Kentucky Wiener Dog! That, and eating, of course!) This year we had a great big surprise at Kentucky Crafted! We had a snowstorm! It wasn't just a little snow, but a good old fashioned snowstorm. It started snowing on Friday night and the flakes kept falling! It snowed so hard that it even thundered! On Saturday morning, Dad said it had snowed almost 12 inches. Dad had to shovel off a spot in our grass so Chloe and I could go outside. If he hadn't done that, the snow would have covered our body! It was the most snow I had ever seen! (The second picture is one Mom took on Saturday morning while we were driving to Crafted. Dad drove extra slow to keep us safe!)

The first picture is of Lynne, my Chief of Staff. I was obviously taking a break from my busy day. Lynne handles all our office work - and she has the perfect lap to sleep in when I need to catch up on my rest!

The last photo is of Mom, Kendall, and me. Kendall's dad is Mr. Keeling, with LG&E. The LG&E-E.ON Company sponsors our newspaper stories. We had met Mr. Keeling lots of times and heard all about Kendall, but had never met her. There I go again, talking about how much I love meeting new friends! Thankfully since Mr. Keeling sponsors our stories, I wasn't sleeping when he came to our booth! I was working!

Chloe missed Kentucky Crafted. She actually used a few vacation days. As you know, Chloe has really bad allergies. She has to take allergy shots every three days. (She never complains. She acts like the needle doesn't even hurt.) Anyway, because of the soaps and smells and all kinds of things at the show, Mom decided Chloe should hang out in the Woody Bus. Everyone missed her, but Chloe didn't miss the sneezing and scratching she would have done had she been there!

Whew! I still have so much to tell you but I better stop for now. Mom says Chloe and I have to take baths tonight. That is not one of my favorite activities, but Mom said I didn't have a choice. So, I have to find my rubber duckie, a nice clean pair of jammies, and four socks! I promise to write again soon!

Have a great night! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
