a meme

My dog, Sadie, got away from me when I was walking in the pasture this afternoon, and was gone for an hour or so.  I searched for an hour (in the rain) calling and calling.  I came back to the house, and just as I was asking the mailman if he'd seen any dead dogs on the highway, here Sadie came from the direction of the pasture, tongue hanging out, breathing hard and smiling at me as if to say, "Boy, that was fun!"
 
Once I got her (and myself) settled down, I checked my e-mail and found this, and decided to share it; hopefully it will calm me down.  I tag anybody who wants to play along.
 
Four jobs I have had in my life:

    1.  order filler
    2.  putting together wiring harnesses for Whitaker Cable
    3.  Building railroad signal devices
    4.  grading and packing apples at an orchard

Four places I have lived:

    1.  Guss, Iowa  (try and find THAT on a map)
    2.  Eagleville, Missouri
    3.  Kansas City, Missouri
    4.  Blue Springs, Missouri

Four TV shows I love to watch:

    1.  CSI
    2.  Grey's Anatomy
    3.  CBS Sunday Morning
    4.  All In The Family reruns

Four Movies I have watched over and over:

    1. "It's A Wonderful Life"
    2. "Little Big Man" 
    3. "Christine" 
    4. "Dear America... Letters Home From Vietnam"
  This was a PBS special years ago, but I have it on DVD; perhaps it doesn't count as a movie.  If it doesn't, then let's say "Apocolypse Now". 

 
Four Places I have been on vacation:

    1.  Rocky Mountains
    2.  Washington, DC
    3.  Kentucky and Tennessee
    4.  Mission, Texas

Four of my favorite foods:

    1.  Pizza
    2.  ice cream
    3.  hot roast beef sandwiches
    4.  home-made apple pie

Four places I would rather be right now:

    1.  Colorado, anywhere in the mountains
    2.  Branson, Mo
    3.  Washington, DC
    4.  Waverly Hall, Georgia
P.S.  I don't want to LIVE at all of these places, but would love to visit them.

OMG! So glad Sadie came back & was ok. When I saw the words "got away from me" I remembered my Monkee disappearing & I remembered your loss of Mandy too.
Hugs, Sug

Don't you hate it when they do that...especially in the rain. Oh my, I'm so glad she found her way home.  'On Ya' - ma

I certainly hope you told her she was in the dog house for upsetting you.  It's hard to try to let them know they have done wrong after the fact.

Anyone ever try to punish a cat?  Yeah right.............

I'm glad she's home.  Throw the frizzbee once for me.

I just don't know how you're going to stop Sadie from doing that...scaring you like that.

We just watched the Dear America documentary. We got it from Blockbuster. It was exceptional, made the whole family--even Dave--get teary eyed. The boys were SO YOUNG!
