Buddy was so long haired and dirty that it was adorable.
So, being back in Hawaii is good... however, on a sad note, my Aunt Dodo (Dolores, on who's birthday I was born) died in hospice care yesterday after having suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns to her legs in an accident the night before our birthday. She was a true Christian Catholic, and I'm sure she's up there asking God all kinds of questions as she was curious about everything and everybody! She's also dancing cheek to cheek with her husband, Uncle Ted, who preceded her by a decade. (According to my cousin, she was wiggling in her bed earlier yesterday morning 'dancing' to the music by Fred Astaire!)
All 4 of her children got to see her and many of us called and spoke with her while still in hospital. I'm glad it went fairly quickly and that she didn't suffer endlessly for days or weeks. I'm also praying for my cousins, especially my dear cousin, Richard, who was her rock and biggest supporter/fan.
