“People let me tell you ’bout my best friend…”
If you are singing the theme song from “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father” then you’re old! Or should I say, you’re old TOO! My nearest and dearest, Marty, was a 1 year old baby when the series ended in 1972, so I guess HE isn’t old, but I was 11 and remember the show very clearly. “Mr. Eddie’s Father! Mr. Eddie’s Father!” Did you know, there is an OFFICIAL MySpace page dedicated to The Courtship of Eddie’s Father? Yeah, and Robert DiNero is listed as a friend. Hmmmm.
ANYWAY! Buddy the WonderDog is MY best friend. He’s 3/4 Labrador (so he’s energetic, intelligent, loyal, loving and a super varmint hunter) and 1/4 Border Collie (so he’s also devious, OCD and often a PITA). He’s the greatest dog in the world, I’m very proud to be his friend.

“Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.” –Isak Denison.
Isak Dinesen was the pen name of Karen Blixen, the Danish author famously portrayed by Meryl Streep in the film of her best-selling memoir, Out of Africa. She was born near Copenhagen in 1885. In 1914, she and her new husband moved to Kenya to run a coffee plantation. She stayed on after divorcing her husband ten years later, living an unusually independent life. Her book of stories, Seven Gothic Tales, sold well, but Out of Africa made her a worldwide success. She died in 1962.
