This has shaken me right to my very core. It has turned my world upsidedown . At times I really wondered if I could carry on. Would I be better off with Buddy? Maybe. I didn't know a human could be that sad. And lonely. I didn't know a human could cry that much. You can. Right after Buddy died, someone told me you won't be able to breathe for a month. They were right. I couldn't. But I will tell you this. Having all you wonderful, wonderful friends in this place we call a BLOG has saved me. I don't know what I would have done without you. This is a great community of the greatest people I have ever been lucky enough to meet.
There will be a new little red toy poodle coming into my life around the 20th of April. And I can hardly wait for him. I know I just can not live my life without a dog. No way.John and I will be driving down to Southern California to pick him up. And we are naming him Teddy.After a very, very special friend. Thanks for all your kind words and encouragement during the darkest days of my life. I love you all and can't wait to share Teddy with you. Kary.

Inside in Chapter 3 it reads" On the floor of the valley,in the ring of the arena, rich green pastures surrounded the now-quiet river, with miniature herds of cattle and sheep. And, in the very center of the ring, with wisps of bluish wood smoke rising from its cottage chimneys, was the tiny village of Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse.From the wooden gate, the flagstone path led through the roadside front garden, with lilac and rose bushes, geraniuims and hydrangea. We were met at the front door by two ladies who own and run the auberge. There was a small hand lettered sign above the door: Auberge De L'Atre Fleuri."
In the book there is a chapter called "The Glory of the Potato."
Tonight for supper I am going to cook a piece of ham and I am serving these potatoes.
Casserole Of Potatoes In Cream
New potatoes, boiled with the skins left on and sliced about 1/2 inch thick
Black cracked pepper
Layer the potatoes in a buttered casserole dish
Add a splash of cream, a dollop of butter,some salt and pepper and the Gruyere cheese
Make one more layer and top it off with grated Gruyere
