Happy Thursday!

Me posing for a photo in the family room.

Hi there! I am feeling much better today. More energetic and a bit more like my old self. So, that is some good news! I appreciate all the well-wishes when I was feeling under the weather.

David Irving and Daddy posing for a photo in Omaha.

I'm just hanging out with Mommy today. After work, Daddy headed to Omaha to visit his friend David Irving who is speaking there today. David is a WWII historian who lives in Europe. So, when he is in the area, Daddy and him usually get together briefly.

Wishing you a delightful rest of the week and upcoming weekend!!! ~ Robert

Mommy's cousin's baby and her baby ...

So, Mommy's cousin, Carolyn, recently sent her some lovely photos of her daughter, Cassondra, who is currently expecting a baby boy named Benjamin. Thought I'd share the beautiful photos with you ...

Cassondra at 23 weeks. Carolyn told Mommy that Cassondra is glowing. Mommy says Cassondra looks beautiful. I agree!!!

Above is a photo of the proud-parents-to-be: Cassondra and Brandon. Everyone in the family, including my Daddy and Mommy, are excited with eager anticipation about Benjamin's soon arrival!

It's raining!!

New Garden sign on fence in back yard, shown in photos above and below.

So, it's raining outside today, so the garden in the back yard is getting some "Divine Watering." The garden continues to progress along nicely. You can see recent photos taken on a more sunny day, above and below ...

A new garden sign was also added to the garden shed, and the flowers in the window boxes continue to grow, as you can see by the photos above and below.

By the way, I don't know what you call the bush that is in the photo below, but Daddy and Mommy say that it adds a nice splash of color along side the garden shed.

Happy weekend!!!

Daddy and I

Hi there! I'm back home now from the animal hospital and feeling much better now. My uncles Loren and Claire came over this afternoon and helped hang some more paintings on the walls in my home. The photos below are of a Magpie that my aunt Judith painted and Mommy had framed recently. Daddy hasn't seen it all framed and hanging on the wall in the dining room yet so he will be thrilled to see it, I know.

I also thought I'd share with you some photos of my friend, Mike, who plays baseball and lives in neighboring Nebraska ... By the way, Mike, in case you happen to see this post on my blog, I wish you many home runs throughout your life!!! Take care, my friend ... ~ Robert

This is a special notice to all of Robert William Claire's loyal readers out there that his Mommy and Daddy had to rush him to the pet hospital regarding his mega colon medical condition. Robert is getting the medical attention he needs right now, and is expected to return home in a day or so when he is feeling a little bit better.

Meanwhile, Robert appreciates all of your attention you give in following his blog, and the interest you have shown in his life. Look for a new post from Robert soon!

Take care of yourself and those you love!
