Well, we did it!
I called the local Lowes and they said NO to dogs. I called HomeDepot. They said YES to some dogs, BUT Benjy is too big! ggrrrr
It was an interesting birthday indeed. My wife Sue's birthday was Friday. The hospital just happened to schedule me for a sleep study to by done Thursday night. She had to drop me off at the sleep center at 9:30PM and pick me up at 6:00AM. We got an early start to her day. LOL
Her mom and her sister-in-law offered to sit for Benjy if we wanted to go for a day trip or movie. Sue said no to that. But she did agree to leave Benjy at home long enough to go to an Amish community an hour from here that we hadn't been to yet. So we went to an Amish restaurant and saw some crafts, etc. And went through the oldest general store in the state. (It reminded us of the oldest general store in Vermont we saw a couple years ago on our way to Maine.)
We went home and Benjy was fine. He was very glad to see us. Then to finish off her birthday, today we left him home again and went out to lunch and a new Menards store was having its grand opening. I got her two patio benches There weren't many grills left. Passed on that.
But she is thrilled to finally have real furniture for the front porch. She even liked the pattern on the cushions. She can put the $10 chairs from the drugstore in the backyard now.
Oh, I almost forget the flowers! I ordered flowers to be delivered Thursday while we (the 3 of us) were at a tennis match for her niece. I gave delivery instructions for them to be put in the back sunroom. We came home and Sue didn't know she had any flowers. I was able to sneak the flowers from the sunroom to the bedroom and put it on the dresser without her knowing about it. So I just left the flowers there for her to find. She was so excited to find flowers without hearing a delivery person and tipping her off.
So everything worked out really well. And I think she is going to feel more comfortable about leaving Benjy at home sometimes.
Benjy even made her a birthday card! (sloppykisscards.com)
Jeff & Sue are the proud Momma and Daddy
