All kinds of socks are gratefully received, they always make me smile

It's always the everyday random things that start me off!. Yesterday I was walking home and I heard a lady shout "Barnaby, wait", of course I immediately turned around to see a cute Boxer dog stop dead in his tracks who was obviously called Barnaby, I just smiled and laughed to myself!. Today I was walking through the town centre and there was a very talented busker playing the saxophone, he was doing his version of Eric Claptons "Tears In Heaven", I don't particularly like the song but still it made me teary!, I gave the man some coins and he smiled at me and I carried on walking trying desperately not to make a show of myself. The little things just get me sometimes!

That song always gets me. Jenn is right, some days it is really tough. Sending you a big cyber hug and a sloppy kiss from your nephew, Bailey.OXO

That's beautiful, I can't read the writing though, is it Mel's little urn?

It's not an urn. It's the Fort Detroit Golden Retriever Club "Holiday's Top Contender" trophy for the most conformation points gained in a challenge period by an owner-handled bitch. The dog standing up next to it is Tiki. She won it years ago. It was fun to get it because the sponsor of the award was my breeder, who had sold me Tiki's mom. (You can see part of Mel's head on her other side.)
I hope you're doing okay. I know how much you must be missing your boy. Please take care and say "Hi" to Uncle Swishy for me.
