Happy Herman's Hideaway

Hello there, my sweet San Saba loves, and how in the world have you been since last we spoke? One thing I will tell you is I have not been silent. I have tried to understand my new proclivity to bark at neighbors in their yard, barking dogs, dogs out and about, neighbor cats, squirrels, bugs, dad when he walks out the door and is pretty much my own shadow. Yeah, I have become excessively verbal Herman, and I do not think the parentals are pleased. The other day, I was asleep next to mom, heard a noise, jumped up, barked so loudly mom ended up jumping a foot off the couch. I am so glad her landing wasn’t on the hardwoods! After she calmed down, she turned to me and said…“Herman, I love you more than anything on earth. However, that being said, I can only love and spoil you if I am alive, so I suggest you stop all this sudden loud barking.” Umm, the woman does have a point, doesn’t she?

Greetings, my San Saba loves; we are on to another month, into mid-summer already, the turning of another page of the calendar. Wow, why do I sound like a guy doing a documentary voice over? Did I accidentally take one of mom’s heart pills and become old? Let me shake off this maudlin mood before you guys are bored to pieces, swept up and not in a good way!
