White Dog and Quinn were left in charge of keeping me entertained and distracted while Steve and Michael disappeared for awhile this afternoon and when they returned with grocery bags White Dog was ordered to stay on my lap feigning sleep so that I could not go out and help unpack things. All afternoon conversations around me were conducted in hushed murmurs that stopped when I came close. I was beginning to get a little paranoid. We all went to visit Michael's mom in Rehab and she finally got to meet Quinn! Both Quinn and White Dog were allowed into the lobby and my sister came out in a wheelchair for the introductions. Michael was very proud of Quinn's behavior and was happy that his mom liked him. She has a photo of Michael and Quinn and Siku hanging in her room.
When Richard came over after, the gig was up! I knew that he and Steve and Quinn were doing prep work for something special tomorrow but White Dog advised me to relax and not ruin the surprise of my celebration. So she has sequestered me in the computer room while the "boys" blend and grind and mix and chop and assemble their mysterious great smelling project. I cannot wait for the end results!
