Thank You, Bagel Bunch!

Thanks so much for the lovely card and book. So here are some serious and amusing quotes on friendship, as the book had no quotes about bagels!

A friend is never known until he's needed.

I am wealthy in my friends.

The only way to have a friend is to be one.

It's not so much our friends' help that helps us as the confident knowledge that they will help us.

It's important to our friends to believe that we are unreservedly frank with them, and important to friendship that we are not.

Thanks again, and yes, Doug, I'm sucking it up!

Bosco News!

I have big news about my 4 legged kid, Bosco.  He successfully passed the tests required to become a Therapy Dog.  I had all the confidence in the world that he would but I also had to pass and that was some real pressure but I squeaked through.  Only 2 out of 12 passed so we feel pretty good about ourselves.  As soon as his certificate comes in the mail we will be going to various nursing homes,  retirement homes etc. to help cheer up some folks as well as elementary schools where kids can read to him.  I am looking forward to spreading his happiness to others.-------------John
