Keeping Up With The Bostonians

While I do not admit to watching the reality tv show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" I must include them in today's post.  And yes, The Maven watches it, hence the mention. 

But there is more!

In fact there are just two degrees of separation between The Maven and The Kardashian Mob.  Mr. T and I found this out last night as she pranced into our room in hysterics. (See how far her recovery has come? She can prance!)  She was catching up with the Kardashian shenanigans and came across a recent episode where the head of household, Bruce Jenner, needed to have a hearing test. Imagine her surprise when it turned out to be at The House Ear Clinic - the very place she went for all her tests and ultimately had her surgery. Wait, there's more!

Bruce Jenner ended up in an examination room that looked familiar... and then in walked a doctor we are VERY familiar with!  Wendy's surgeon!  We are famous by association!  Finally we have our due!

And guess where someone has her re-check appointment tomorrow and with whom???  Hmmmmmm.  Can I keep my pop-culture-loving mouth from saying something....

Aside from THAT excitement, we saw a fun movie:

The Maven is back to being able to enjoy movies, has been driving the car-even up on the highway a couple of times.  She's even taken a couple of solo trips.  So, things are looking up!
She hopes to return to work the first week of August and go back to her apartment at The Writer's and Sammy's place in about ten days.

This weekend we ventured into our future part of California.  Orange County.  We met up with Stanley and his parents at Huntington Beach Dog Beach and he and the Bostons had quite the romp.  Especially Miss Sadie who made friends with another Boston with a BIG ball.  The other Boston's owner graciously threw that ball around for Sadie and his BT endlessly, pulling Sadie off the ball before she popped it.  

Please ignore the squeaky voice of TBL...

 She rewarded him by ripping the hem of his shirt when she meant to get her teeth on that darn ball.

Stay tuned for what's next for The Bostonians this week!
Everyone have a wonderful week.

The beach video is great, the dogs are having so much fun. Reminds of our many trips to the beach when we lived in California.
Such great good news about your daughter. So happy to hear that she is prancing and driving and soon back to work and apartment.
Life is getting good again.
