I'm SO anxious for this dang heat to end! Yesterday was 108 and today will be 106. Then, by the middle of next week, mid 90's, but then the temps go up again. Grrrrrr! COME ON! It's been a long, hot summer and I'm ready for fall!
I drove to Temecula Friday morning to babysit the granddaughter (20 months) so her mom could go out on a job interview. She was fine. We played silly games together. I left our dog at home with hubby because they can't have a dog at their rental house. So, SOMEBODY had to babysit the dog.
Well, hubby let her out Friday night, after feeding her, and he forgot about her for an hour. He went to let her in and...NO DOG! She didn't come to the back side door. Now, our back yard is completely fenced, but the one night we BOTH drove to Temecula 2 weeks ago, Ripley managed to scratch two of the boards on the side gate. She didn't get out, but she tore up the gate. I did a temporary repair on it, but I didn't nail the boards back in or replace the ones that needed to be replaced. So, he got worried. He got out his flashlight and searched the back yard. NO Ripley. He called her. No dog. he finally opened up the front door, and GUESS WHO was sitting there, wagging her tail?
Good thing he didn't tell me or I would have had a heart attack! We are just one block away from one of the busiest streets in town and I always worry that she'll get out and go out there and get hit by a car. So, I have another 10,000 new gray hairs!
