Today is a grand day. It is a Wednesday and although I usually go into town to visit
my Dad, I did so yesterday and today I have a bit more free time. So what do I do with
this bit of free time? Why, commit to accompanying a group of 20 expats in my town
with their pets on their outing to visit the local Nursing Home. How do these things
happen to me? I am not an appointed representative, a paid employee or an elected
official anywhere but no matter where I have lived in my lifetime, people have always
found me approachable and ask me to do things. I am not a joiner but I do admit that
it is difficult for me to turn down direct requests for my help, especially if it is about a
cause I believe in. And I do believe that pets and Senior Citizens both benefit from the
So off I go to visit with animals and the elderly!
