Just A Quick Note

to thank you for your comments and to let you know that we are OK.

Samson is feeling great and that's such a joy. I attribute it to the change in food we put him on during the summer. It's called Wellness and Chewy's have it. The vet also recommended Zukes for treats. These tiny tidbits smell so great, your dog thinks he got a steak. Samson will have surgery on the 10th. His vet has never done this surgery before, but I trust him. Instead of the cannula he inserted into Samson's tear ducts without success, he now will insert a catheter that will enable him to take X-rays that can be forwarded to the veterinary ophamologist in Los Angeles. But one day and one thing at a time and right now Samson is so happy and feeling so good and that's all that matters.

Faith had her wellness exam and weighed in at 61 pounds of sheer muscle. The vet left this comment on the receipt: "Continue excellent care." This made me feel good even though I don't really do anything for her, except throw balls and let her run around.

I'm feeling good too and will take some time to visit all of you and also prepare a proper post to update with pictures of the floors and house. All that's needed on the house is a second coat on the top of the east side of the house and paint on the front door. Then both the pump house and the dog house need roofing material added, which Glenn may do tomorrow since rain is predicted for the weekend. The rest of the renovation work will be done in the spring. I'm very happy with the colors I picked for the house and it feels great to have come this far.

And, yes, I do love trains and many, many come through here each day.  The cement plant, not so much, but it's been here for a very long time and provides employment for locals. 


  1. Hi! So good to hear from you! Hoping all goes well for Samson. Good that everything else is going well. Faith did become a big girl, didn't she? Looking forward to seeing all the work you and Glenn have done. Later, girl, sending good vibes!

  2. Hi Inger - so good to have your catch up news .. I'll be thinking about you and Samson on the 10th ... it's great what vets and doctors can do for us in the 21st C ... so glad Samson is being looked after. Fun to see Faith's record ... and am so pleased to see you're doing better and Glenn is helping so much - it must make you feel so much easier. Amazing sky ... take care and with thoughts - Hilary

  3. It is so nice to read your post, Inger, and hear that you and your fur babies are doing well.

  4. I love trains to, I like to hear the mourning wail of them at 4 am every day... we only have the Tropicana Train, no others use the tracks, it is closed except for twice a day train .. these are great photos.
    so sorry to hear Samson has to have the surgery, prayers for it to go well and safe and to find what to do for his problems. great to hear Faith is doing well. 61 is a good size for her... glad to see you pop up and that your home is almost done nw

  5. I think we all love trains. : ) Great pictures!
    Hope all goes well the Samson's surgery.
    Nice to hear how well Faith is.

  6. Hi Inger, what a joyful post... it's so nice reading a post from you especially nice to know that you are all doing so well and are happy and that the renovations are also going well. I'm looking forward to seeing some photos of the renovations.

    Good luck to Samson with his surgery. I hope everything will go very well.

  7. Glad everything is going so well for you & your furry family. Give Glenn a kiss for me. Love your header pic!!

  8. So good to read the update and to know you are doing well and Samson and Faith are also. Hope Samson's surgery goes smoothly and he continues to improve. Let us know.

  9. You manage to fill me with gladness when I read your blogs. Samson improving is a big one. Faith makes sense! Trains always catch me as I hear them and they go by. Maybe someday we will take a train trip across Canada.

  10. I'll pray for you, Samson, the vet, and make a special request for the surgery to go well.


  11. It's nice to hear from you. I love trains too and your photos are great. Take care! Hugs, Diane

  12. Praying for Samson!
    We didn't stop at Tehachapi. The smoke was so thick my hubby didn't want to stop. We were trying to get away from smoke. So we didn't get a chance to visit with you. Hopefully next year. However, when we drove by the loop there was a train going up. I think that got hubby excited and he will want to stop next time - smoke or not!

  13. It's always wonderful to have a update, and I'll look forward to the photos of your newly painted home! I hope Samson continues to do well. You're a very good caregiver. :-)

  14. Samson sounds GREAT!! Good work Inger in getting him to this stage.
    I LOVE trains as well and your photos are wonderful!
    Happy to hear you are moving right along in a positive direction.

  15. I love trains - we see so few here - I feel as excited as I did when I was a child when I hear one whenever we travel abroad.
    Glad to see your update and to hear that you're all doing well.
    Have a good weekend. Fil

  17. Interesting to see the train pictures. Our daughter-in-law works for BNSF in Kansas City area - something to do with training (computers). Hope all goes well for Samson.
