Tomorrow I will be away for the Day, as I will be visiting a Lady, that has been in my Life for as long as I can remember, it is my Mum's best Friend of 43 years I have not seen her since my Son was 18 months old, he is now 26 My Mum has not seen her in 15 years but they are always in touch, my Mum lives in Germany and that is why they have not seen each other that long This Lady can tell you a lot about me when I was little lol, including that all the tricks I tried to pull, she knew and would catch me out lol I used to ask her, how do you know, she always used to answer, been there, done that, remember Girl I was your Age once to She had a tough Life, her Husband was an Alcoholic, when he left the Army he would not work, she was holding 5 jobs and bringing up 3 Girls, in the end she kicked the Husband out as he was turning violent as well She would go without to keep the roof and Food for the Girls over their Head and Table She never gave up, she worked hard She would work Nights, get the Girls of to School then start 1 of her Day Jobs, then her second, get the Girls feed them, then get a couple of hours sleep once they had gone to bed and then got up for her first Night Job, while her Husband snored his head of When he left she had to give up the Night ones and had 5 Day Jobs so she could pay the Mortgage and feed and dress the Girls She did it and she is one strong Lady So tomorrow after 25 years of not seeing her I will be spending the Day with her and we are both looking forward to it very much She asked me not to make myself sicker by driving there but I told her that I will not be back up here for about 6 months so I am coming, I am in a bad way with my Lungs because the Air here is badly Polluted one of the reasons I moved away from here 4 years ago, so I am on my Emergency Tablets and when I get back the Nurse is coming to see me, I refuse to go to the Doctor here as I am worried they will put me in Hospital here and it is not very good So I will still drive to see her tomorrow as I have been looking forward to it now for 3 months I will be fine, lol, and spoilt while I am there with my favorite Meal The best will be just being with her, seeing her again So do you think Gissi will behave

Gaby how many times do I have to tell you that Gissi and I have a secret to misbehave so that he can come over to visit Auntie. Have a wonderful time with your lady friend, I will pray that your drive and health will be safe and great. As for Gissi he has been raised by a wonderful mum and will be on his best behavior for sure. If not Auntie will have to pat him on the butt. , then kiss his paws.

Hahahahaha HWG Well he was good but he was being spoilt as well and was allowed to have his say and well just do what he wanted My Mum's Friend is a big lover of Dogs to and treats them like a child as well lol Of course Gissi soon realised if I told him to behave I would be told to behave and to leave the poor Baby be so he played on it lol Reni loved him specially the way he would talk back when you talk to him lol Hey there might be some Gissi babies on the go if my Boy plays it right when we get back home lol, his Girlfriend Roxy is in season

hi gabs do take care on your trip up to see her. I think its so wonderful you can see this great friend of yours and your mom;'s. She sounds very special to you. Oh you know Gissi will be Gissi and he will have your friend laughing her head off too. She sounds like a very strong and loving mom to work so hard for her five girls.why is it that women like her always seem to get stuck with jerks for husbands. Maybe its that maternal thing that somehow she hopes he will become a prince with her love and care,but jerks seldom do anything but be more than ever jerks. Anyway do take care. I am so sorry you have that dreadful smog too. I am so glad we do not live too close to LA as there is a mantle of ugly grey stuff always lying right above Los Angeles and when you drive into the suburbs you just choke on the stuff,it smells so bad. Here we get ocean wind and our air is alway clear, sometimes chilly but not smoggy.

Gissi will be Gissi, no matter where he is or who he is with! But I am sure that he will capture the heart of your mum's friend when they meet, and of course, he will be the centre of attention! Enjoy your re-union Gaby, take lost of photos and share some with us when you get back home. Keep safe. Hugs xx

Good little Gissi - he never fails to get under the skin! Yes, we are fine here Gabs - we survived the recent floods although thousands of people were not so fortunate - some have lost everything. There have been 10 deaths so far and although the rain has finally stopped, the rivers are still raging. Many towns are cut off and isolated.

Did you ask if we think Gissi will behave? HAHAHAHAHA! Now you know if Gissi behaved, you wouldn't have any fun stories to tell us. We all look forward to hearing about Gissi's escapades and what the little guy is up to all the time. I hope you have a wonderful time and please take care of yourself. It's going to be fun for you to hear about everything that's been happening over the years and I'm sure it will be a nice memory for you. Hugs hon..

No, but you can threaten him of going to the V.E.T. if he doesn't. (Of course, we know its an empty threat, but he doesn't have to know that.) I spent a few hours with my friend who lost our mutual friend earlier this month. We are going to try and get together more.

That's cool that you are going to see your mom's friend, you may learn even more stories while you are there. As for Gissi behaving? Well, I think it depends on both Gissi and this woman and whether or not they hit it off. For your sake, I hope they do, the last thing you need is conflict between your dog and your mom's friend..

They hit it of but I had no doubts as she is also a big Dog lover and treats them like a Child, I was being told of for telling him to stop barking lol He was allowed to do what ever he wanted and of course he enjoyed every minute of the cuddles and all the Fun lol

Sometimes it takes something like this to make us better, not well per sa but better. I hope you have a wonderful time!! And Gissi needs to be a good boy and mind his momma. LOL LOL

If Gissi does not behave he will at the very least enchant her. I hope you have a great visit, but you do need to take care of yourself as well.
