Blogging with Buddy, April 22nd, 2016

I don’t ever remember April being so warm but then again I’m only 3 years old!  Mama tells me she can’t remember it being warm this early either and she goes way back (don’t tell her I said that).  With my big Newf coat I’m a bit apprehensive as to what I might run into this summer if it’s already hitting the 20’s C on our back deck.  I’ll either have to stay close to the air conditioning or spend lots of time in the refreshing Bay of Fundy!  Now that’s something to look forward to!  Although it’s warm the trees don’t seem to be budding out but Mama says that will happen when we get some much needed rain to get them started.  I really don’t like the rain much, it means that I track dirty footprints into the house and have to have my paws wiped before entering.  It’s perfect when it rains in the night time and then clear in the next day!  That’s probably just too much to wish for.

We’re all so excited to have our Auntie Blue, Uncle Clinton, Myra and little Lucas back from the south for the summer.  They live not too far from us so we can have frequent visits.  Our Auntie Blue is a real wiz, she can cook, bake, knit and sew with the best of them.  She even makes homemade jams and pickles.  Every year she makes Mama a batch of homemade strawberry jam, um, um good.  Nicholas and I have had a wee taste on a cracker but Mama’s not too liberal with sharing Auntie Blue’s jam (just ask Daddy)!  We just love our Auntie Blue and Uncle Clinton.  Myra and Lucas had a good winter in the south.  Lucas’ health has improved in the last few months and he is still making progress but is not yet 100%.  He’s so happy to be home to his own vet here in Rothesay at Fairvale Animal Hospital where they take such good care of him.

The Team is busy with open houses this weekend starting Saturday from 2 to 4pm at 545 Lewin Avenue, West Saint John.  The spacious family homes has large rooms, inviting fireplace, plenty of bedrooms and a stunning private patio on a mature lot.  On Sunday drop by 28 John Street in Nauwigewauk from 2 to 4pm to view this lovely home with panoramic water and mountain view, large rooms, gracious Palladian windows, plus many upgrades including every man’s dream, the perfect oversized attached heated garage with epoxy flooring!

Nicholas and I are hoping to get a nice walk on Spy Glass Hill this sunny weekend.  Hope to see you there.

Your pal,
