THE START OF A NEW (AND HOPEFULLY BETTER) NEW YEAR

I bet you all thought I wouldn't back.  But like Jack Nickelson in "The Shining"---I'm Backkkkkk!!!!!.

It has been a very difficult time for my poor PA--between problems with the online platform for her classes, her father breaking his hip and emergency gall bladder surgery (involving six weeks in the hospital and then passing away in November at the age of 95), her computer totally crashing and losing a lot of valuable info, taking care of us, miserable weather for Arkansas, and taking care of her 90 year old mother--she just didn't have time to keep Dad's or my blog up-to-date.  She has been following Brother Buddy, Sister Darby, and Cousin Pumpkin's antics though.

Now it is the new semester and day one was called off because of snow and day two has a delayed start which means her classes don't meet.  Now she is two days behind already!

We did have a nice holiday--not many treats but we got to stay in the house on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. 


Happy New Year from the Coedwig Cardigans
Here we all are, 8 of us stuffed on the love seat, the rest spilling over on the floor :-)   Hopefully, everyone had a good holiday, full of happiness and cheer.  Here's to my PA keeping my blog current.

Hi! Sammy!
Hurray! So glad to see you blogging! Big kisses for your PA! Love the family picture! Didn't know it was so large. That must be Dad on the couch. I do look like him!

Buddy,

No dad is on the floor between Bailey Butt and Mystique aka Miss Stinky. Let's see if I can get everyone right--left to right on the floor--Bailey Butt, Dad, Miss Stinky, Vickie and Sandie.

On the couch, left to right--Me looking over Zoe's butt, Glacier behind Jolee who is squeezed between Zoe and Abbey, the Princess peeking over Fancy's head, and on the arm is Miss SusieQ.

Whew! I did remember everyone's name.

Sammy isn't Zoe Dad's Mom?! Did I remember right? Wow! If so, I got good genes!

Sammy said...

No, Jolee is Dad's mom. Zoe is Dad's half-sister as both of the have Carbon for their dad. Which makes Carbon our granddad.

I love that photo! What a well behaved bunch of corgitude! The only ones I recognized for sure were Zoe--those ears! And Vickie, also because of her ears but not because of their size, but rather their painting!

We're glad you're back and we're hoping your PA has an easier time of things this year.

Oh wow, what a great shot! I'd be happy to take a photo with my one sister, Nala...but she doesn't like being anywhere close to me, unless I'm facing the other way! Hmmm, I wonder if it's because I'm constantly trying to herd her. lol Woofs & hugs! ~Bailey
