~ Swimming the MacKenzie River
With the novelty of sprinklers wearing off, Porsche decided to take on
the MacKenzie River. It took 3 or 4 lessons before she would swim
across. The river is low, so for 40 feet of width only about 10 feet
required swimming, and I could walk all the way across to an island.
Please note life jacket found at St. Vincent de Paul for $2.00 is a
great teaching aid and confidence builder for swimming. Of course,
everyone should wear one on the river. When I slipped and fell into the
water, I was glad to have my life jacket, and Porsche immediately came
to my rescue. She steadies me when I go up and down the river bank. I
think she is figuring out her role in my life.
The New Cooling Pad
Here is Porsche’s new cooling pad. My daughter gave it to
her. Porsche seeks it out when it is hot. For us, 90 degrees is hot,
and it’s been a bit hotter than that.
I hope you enjoy this news of Porsche and her life
