Kramer’s Korner

Hello again friends and followers. Kramer here with another fascinating episode in the life of the world’s most famous Pekinese. Well, maybe not famous, but certainly well known.

It has been another two weeks since we chatted and what a two weeks it has been. So much happened that I won’t be able to tell you all of it today, but stay tuned for future posts where I will reveal more exciting things.

Where to start. As you know, Bob’s sister in law was coming to visit me…..and Bob. We had not met before so I was a little unsure about how all this was going to play out, especially since my car seat was moved into the second row. Bob went to pick Angie up on a Tuesday morning. I went along to make sure I was going to be OK with this. I quickly realized that there was at least one good thing about sitting in the back. I could check her out and listen to her without her observing me. I hate to admit it, but I liked her right away. She seemed very pleasant and had a nice laugh. It also didn’t hurt that she seemed to like me too. When we got home and had some time to get acquainted, she talked to me and picked me up. I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but suddenly I was in love, again. Oh, everyone knows I have a soft spot for women, but Angie was special. I helped her (us) move into her room. Since she was a stranger to the area, I decided that I would sleep on her bed in case she got homesick. In fact, for the most part, I spent all my time with her. Bob didn’t say anything, but I am sure he was wondering ‘what the hell just happened here’.

The rest of the week was a whirlwind. We visited a couple of Maine parks, waterfalls, the Wildlife Park, went hiking on the Libby Trails, drove down to Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, visited Fort Allen Park, and, drove up to visit Cyndee and my beautiful Bella. Oh yeah!!

We arrived about lunchtime and stayed for several hours. Bella and I played a lot, but I’ll have to admit, she has more ambition then I do. That girl can PARTY. And, I know she is crazy about me, because she wouldn’t leave me alone. She loves jumping on me and rolling around. Bob said ‘that’s not necessarily a bad thing and doesn’t happen to everyone’. Now, I’m not saying I’m lazy, as Trish, my groomer, has declared. But I did finally seek the solace of Bob’s lap. And I’m afraid when she also tried to jump up, I became a little defensive and spoke harshly to her. Then her dad picked her up too and everything was cool. It was a great time. On the ride home, I curled up in my seat and took a little nap while visions of Bella danced through my head.

The day we drove down to the Kennebunks, we had had other plans, but it was very chilly and the wind was quite strong, so we decided to do something where we didn’t have to get out of the car. Bob had not been there before, and it is a little early in the season for the heavy influx of tourists, so it turned into more of a tour then a visit. However, Angie said that if she can come back this summer, she would like to walk around and see more of the towns. Maybe even get some pictures of the Bush compound on Walkers Point. Hey, if that’s what Angie wants to do, I’m up for it.

Well, that’s about it for this time. I will tell you more about her visit in my next episode and show you some pictures.

Oh, before I go, just wanted to say the For The Love Of Pets Radiothon was a big success. Bob and a couple of other volunteers spent over two hours playing in the traffic collecting money for my friends. And no, the person in the dog costume is not Bob. Between that and contributions that were phoned in or pledged, and the wonderful support given by the radio station and business sponsors, the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society managed to raise about $10,000. I was so excited, even though I had to wait in the car. I know no one could hear me, but I was cheering them on, and maybe dozing a little.

So, until next time, this is Kramer reminding you to keep a smile on your face and a treat in your pocket. And to my still homeless friends, I want you to know we are working on it.

This is Kramer signing off

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.
