101 Dalmatians


"In business you learn, "If you want a friend, get a dog."

Hi friends,

Mommy is very sad tonight and has been crying most of the day. Her cousin, who had the quadruple bypass and has been in intensive care for almost two months died today. Mommy was at work and lost it but that's just Mommy. Today was his 77th birthday.

His daughter called Mommy right after he died and said it was his birthday today. Funny thing, well not really funny, but it made his daughters and wife laugh when Sue said "Remember Aunt Annie died on her 77th birthday too!"
and his wife said "Just like Annie, wouldn't you know it?" Mommy's Godmother and Bennie were two of a kind. Both stubborn and hard headed, but then all the Bonos' and Riccas' are but Mommy loved them both and it's just so hard when so many of the older generations leaves us.

I told Mommy to be brave and get on with what the post was supposed to be tonight. I hope everybody enjoyed the pictures from the Halloweiner Party. Remember how silly Mommy looked? Well that was nothing compared to what she is gonna look like on Friday. The hospital is having a SPOOKTACULAR DAY.
Every department had to select a theme and there will be prizes and each department gets to have a luncheon paid for by the managers in each department. The winning department gets a grand prize of lunch from Subway.

The powers that be (management) decided the theme would be 101 Dalmatians.

This outta be good. Connie, the BO Director is gonna be that mean old lady, what's her name?, that wants to use all those pretty spotted dogs to make them into a coat. Wonder if she's related to Michael Vick? Not to fear, she'll get her's in the end.
Uncle Neil and Christian are gonna be the bums and guess what everybody else is gonna be?

Yep, Dalmatians!!

My Mommy is gonna be a DOG. She's gotta wear white tennis shoes, black slacks and a white shirt with construction paper black spots taped on. She gotta wear makeup with whiskers painted on. She gotta wear long floppy ears, a collar and
a tail taped to her butt.
BOY O BOY!!! This is gonna be so funny!! Now Mommy will know what it's like to be a dog. Pictures to follow Friday evening.
Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all...Mona

Hi Mona and Mommy,
So sorry about your loss. I am sending lots of puggy hugs and kisses your way.
The Dalmatian idea sounds really cute! Maybe my mom should do that for her costume?!
Happy Hallowe'en!

Sorry about the passing.
I wouldn't want a tail that has to be taped on. Well, I guess that is the best a two legger can do. Poor things. Tiny ears, and no tail. How do they manage???

Mona, we are so sorry to hear about your Mom's cousin - that is so sad to go through all that surgery and have this happen. Give her a kiss from all of us.

Maybe that Halloween party at work will help make her feel better. And she had better get pics so we can see her and all her coworkers dressed up.

Tail wags, the OP Pack
