Up In The Air It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s Zen Dog

This is a snapshot from the webcam at Downtown Dogs where Freckles is spending the day. If you look on top of the blue ramp on the left you will see Freckles looking off into the distance where all the other dogs are. It is hysterical to watch her during the day because while all the other dogs are following the person in the room where he or she goes, Freckles finds a place to plant herself and just watch. Yes, I think she’s the Doggie Lama — Zen on three legs.

I am pleased to announce that after fighting and begging and wishing for almost a year and a half (since July 2009) I finally got my escrow refund check yesterday. I refinanced in 2009 and received a nice hunk of money back on my escrow account. I put it in the bank and the same day the mortgage company filed for bankruptcy and all their funds were frozen … including my money. The check came back NSF and since then I have had to dig and claw to find out which of the institutions that took over the mortgages had taken my mortgage (or at least my leftover mortgage) and then to get a check from them. It couldn’t have come at a better time. It also couldn’t have come at a worse time. I put it in my savings account but I’m so tempted to go to Jamaica and never return. I think I would look great with rastafarian hair, don’t you?????
