It is absolutely essential you direct all of your attention and love for a moment to Clarence, the first Official Police Comfort dog in the US. The fluffy, 160-pound St. Bernard roamed the halls of Congress this week, providing support and lighthearted moments for legislators, staff and other Hill denizens who have seen plenty of heartache in the last few months. Clarence and his handler, Lt. William Gordon, have been on hand in the aftermath of some of the country's worst tragedies, include Sandy Hook, the Las Vegas shootings, and the Boston Marathon bombing. Clarence's latest assignment on the Hill shows there is at least one thing we can agree on in these divided times: There's nothing quite like the comfort and love of a very good dog.
Another special day on Wednesday.
drove 55 miles from Redlands, CA to go to lunch. I have known Kevin since
he was 6 years old, and couldn't love him more if he was my own son. He
is so thoughtful and kind.
We both ordered a bento lunch.
On the way home Kevin stopped at the grocery for me and helped me get it inside. The three hours flew by. One of the good things about aging, you really appreciate the special people in your life. Kevin is one in mine!
Thanks for coming by today.
