I am joining Angela today over at her Show and Tail. Please come over to visit and then share a story about your pet.
Now my daughter and I are called Lucy and Ethel a lot by my husband. Sometimes she is Lucy and I'm Ethel or vice versa.
This time I think I was Lucy (I hate to admit that). I love animals and I want a dog so very bad. I think every little boy (and family) should have one and I just want my grandson to have this experience.
So . . . we got a dog. Yes we did. And yes, I might be allergic, but I am going to do my best and this time go see an allergist and get shots. I'm committed.
He's two years old - Disco - he's potty trained :) - and he's a rescue dog - and we love him to death already.
So I feel this is kind of silly, but if you'd send up a prayer and ask God to not let me be allergic this time - I'd appreciate it. I know he has bigger issues to deal with. . . but this is really important to us.
So now I am going to have 3 GRANDSONS and something to write for real on Angela's blog!
Isn't that the sweetest pciture ever? Thanks for your prayers for us.
Happy Birthday to Nancy Reagan - wikipedia
During her career as an actress, Nancy Davis dated actors in Hollywood; she later called Clark Gable, whom she dated briefly, the nicest of the stars she had met.
On November 15, 1949, she met Ronald Reagan, who was then president of the Screen Actors Guild. Nancy had noticed that her name had appeared on the Hollywood blacklist and sought Reagan's help to maintain her employment as a guild actress in Hollywood, and for assistance in having her name removed from the list. Reagan informed her that she had been confused with another actress of the same name.
The two began dating and their relationship was the subject of many gossip columns; one Hollywood press account described their nightclub-free times together as "the romance of a couple who have no vices". Ronald Reagan was skeptical about marriage, however, following his painful 1948 divorce from Jane Wyman, and he still saw other women.
After three years of dating, he eventually proposed to Davis in the couple's favorite booth at the Beverly Hills restaurant Chasen's. They married on March 4, 1952 in a simple ceremony designed to avoid the press at the Little Brown Church in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. The only people in attendance were actor William Holden, the best man, and his wife, the matron of honor.
The couple's first child, Patricia Ann Reagan (better known by her professional name, Patti Davis), was born on October 21, 1952. Their son, Ronald Prescott Reagan, was born six years later on May 20. Nancy Reagan also became stepmother to Maureen Reagan (1941–2001) and Michael Reagan (born 1945), the children of her husband's first marriage to Jane Wyman.
The Reagan family in 1967, shortly after Ronald Reagan's inauguration as Governor of California Observers described Ronald and Nancy Reagan's relationship as intimate.
As president and first lady, the Reagans were reported to display their affection frequently, with one press secretary noting, "They never took each other for granted. They never stopped courting." Ronald often called Nancy "Mommy"; she called him "Ronnie".
While the President was recuperating in the hospital after the 1981 assassination attempt, Nancy Reagan wrote in her diary, "Nothing can happen to my Ronnie. My life would be over."
In a letter to Nancy, Ronald wrote, "whatever I treasure and enjoy … all would be without meaning if I didn’t have you."
In 1998, while her husband was afflicted with Alzheimer's disease, Nancy told Vanity Fair, "Our relationship is very special. We were very much in love and still are. When I say my life began with Ronnie, well, it's true. It did. I can't imagine life without him."
Nancy was known for the focused and attentive look, termed "the Gaze", that she fastened upon her husband during his speeches and appearances. President Reagan's death in June 2004 ended what Charlton Heston called "the greatest love affair in the history of the American Presidency."
Now that was a sweet story.
