Kramer’s Korner

Greetings again all my avid readers. Kramer here. I can’t believe two more weeks have evaporated so quickly. I guess it is because life has kind of settled into a routine and I am comfortable with it. New stuff doesn’t happen every day and I’m OK with that. I am beginning to become a little complacent I’m afraid. Life for me is actually pretty good.

Weather wise, most of the snow is now gone but we are still experiencing a lot of days in the forties. At least I’m not getting stuffed into that damn coat all the time. I thought I would miss the snow more then I do. I forgot about all the dead leaves that are still there from last fall and how much fun it is to roll around in them. Bob just shakes his head. He forgets that when he was a pup, I mean kid, he did the same thing.

Bob went to a Birthday party yesterday. I didn’t get to go because it was a place where they serve food so animals cannot go in. I’m going to have to talk to Bob about getting my Service Dog certification. Who knows how much cake and other goodies I’m missing. Bob’s still on his diet, so he can’t eat them. It would be a shame to see them go to waste.

Later this month, Bob’s Sister In Law is coming to visit from Indiana. He says she is very nice and I will love her, however, I will be the judge of that. To me, there is a correlation between being very nice and being very generous. She has seen my picture and read enough about me to know what to expect, so I hope she comes prepared to gain my respect, and, you know, cuddles. I don’t just throw myself at anyone. Well, actually I do, but they have to be worthy. When she comes, we are going to take a day trip up to Bangor. Bob was stationed there when he was in the Air Force and hasn’t been back since. It is also where he and Diane lived when they were first married. Kind of a stroll down memory lane I guess. But here is the best part. While up there, we are going to visit a cousin that lives in the area and she is the one that Bella, my Shiatsu heartthrob adopted. I haven’t seen Bella since the beginning of this Covid thing, so I am really looking forward to seeing her again.

At the end of April, there is a radio station in Auburn that is going to do an appreciation day for the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society running from six A.M. to six P.M. Bob has been asked to participate in an interview about his experiences as both a volunteer and as someone that has been adopted by a dog. They are also going to be doing a live feed, so I am going to have to see if there are any opportunities for me to make a debut. This is not about me mind you. I’m just nervous about Bob doing it alone. Kind of guarantee his success if you would.

Well, I guess that’s about it for now. Lucky Dog will be on shortly and I don’t want to miss that. So, until next time, this is Kramer saying keep a smile on your face and a treat in your pocket. And to my still homeless friends, I will se what I can do to advance your cause. I’ll let you know how that works out.

Take care and Happy Easter

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
