I'm telling you, she really wants to be named Mark. Just try it, she'll jump for joy when you do!!!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be another hot one here in central Indy with a high of 83. We are also going to see some storms throughout the day. My plans for today involve a lot of work on the computer and running a few errands. Of course that's all subject to change according to who shows up at my door. First things first though. I have to drag myself out of bed. I'm really comfortable laying here watching the news though. The pictures from Oklahoma are just heartbreaking. I hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!

She DOES look as though she's thoroughly at home. If I didn't know she was a new member of the family, I would swear she had been with you for years, she looks so comfortable and happy!

Nothing wrong with "Girl." After all, "Lassie" means "girl," and Lassie did all right with that name!

Another name that comes to me is Perdita, from the book (not the movie) "One Hundred and One Dalmatians." In the book, she was a lost, starving dog wandering around trying to find her family. Mrs. Darling found the dog collapsed in the middle of the road and picked her up and took her home with her. She named the dog Perdita from the Latin word for "lost." (But Girl looks too chummy for a Latin name, I think.)

Maybe she would. In the Damon Runyon story "Little Miss Marker," there was a little girl named Marky. And then there's Markie Post from "Night Court." Made may be onto something.

The radio is full of news about the Moore tornado this morning. Last I heard there were 51 killed; 20 were children. And they were expecting the final count to rise over 100. So terrible ... like the rest of you, I can only cry and pray.

Good morning, friends~

Happy Tuesday!!

We had some loud thunderstorms throughout the night, they kept Har & I up for a bit. She did much better with them! She still was very alert, and unnerved, but just moved closer to me & planted herself in between my legs & rested her head on my stomach. That's progress.

So, I am a little sleepy once again =]
But, only because I'm a light sleeper!!

How are you guys today?

I am going to have some coffee, take Harlowe for a walk, and then hop in the shower & get ready for my lunch date. Hopefully, the storms will hold off for my mini road trip.

Thoughts & prayers going out to our friends in Oklahoma.

Take care, and have a blessed day, friends.
xx

I was just at that school about two weeks ago, on a Sunday, visiting with some folks who live across the street. I know their house is gone but have not heard from them.

Thanks for all the prayers. Don't get the wrong impression...my house and family are safe! But just taking the loss in the community hard.

Hope you all are having a good Monday. My dogs don't know what to think about all this...helicopters and sirens all around!
My prayers continue! {{{HUGS}}}
