A great time was had by all and happy birthday to the USA!
I got another dog at PawsChicago on Clybourn Avenue in Chicago. His color reminded me of Rusty and so does his temperament. He is house trained, vaccinated, neutered, micro-chipped and house trained. The donation fee for the adoption included the first vet visit and dog training. His name is Chuck and he is an 11 month old Labrador retriever mix.
Visit to cemetery on 1st Mother’s Day without her. Headstone reads “Best in the World” – the same as dad’s to the left of her.
It was one of the hardest things I have had to do but he could no longer walk and he had some other blood blockages causing swollen limbs. He was put to sleep earlier today.
I am comforted by a number of photos that I have to remember him by including the one with my mother and him at the ballgame.
I had a great time in the warmth of Arizona for a trip that included White Sox spring training, tours of Scottsdale and Tempe and trips to the Red Rock Canyon and a ride on the Copper Spike Train in Globe, Arizona.
I had a great time at the British car parts swap meet in Wheaton, Illinois on Sunday, February 28, 2010. It was the first time I had been to this event even though this was its 14th year.
I attended with Bruce Magers of the American MGB Association and we had a vendor’s table set up with club merchandise and membership information. We did manage to sign up a few new members and met many of our current members at the show. It was also good to see so many of the friends that I have made throughout the years because of my involvement with the club.
There are specific forms to use when filling for the 2009 new home credit and 2009 energy credit. Be sure to include them if you wish to take advantage of these credits on your income taxes.
With the real estate slump, my business has been down a little. I have doing more criminal and family law cases. Prices are still holding up in Chicago but most of my work seem to involve the seller having problems making payments. It is a good time for buyers and there are many good deals out there on property!
