News, updates, and happenings with the Kragnes family: Phil, our Seeing Eye Dogs, and (me) Rebecca.

April Update

for lunch I had Phil’s leftovers from Wok in the Park where we ate last night for my birthday. I ordered the slayer stir fry with all kinds of garlic, along with the usual stir fry stuff. I had key lime pie for dessert. The owners weren’t there to sing happy birthday in their three part harmony the way they had other years, but the food was just as delicious, and our dinner companions were fun.
Phil gave me some rainbow kaleidoscope glasses, several pieces of light-up jewelry, and some water proof colored lights for the shower.
When Phil’s family was going through his mother’s things, Phil requested that I be given her sand dollar necklace. Either it broke or couldn’t be found. Phil’s sister Kathy saw some silver sand dollar Christmas ornaments and bought one which says “Forever remembered, Forever loved” and put it on a silvaer chain. I wore it to dinner and received compliments. I plan to wear some of the light-up jewelry and the rainbow kaleidoscope glasses at the Malt shop. I’ve already showered with the lights and can’t wait until they are more visible hung.
Speaking of hanging things, my parents came fora surprise visit and hung the jewelry tree with lights and velvety back ground I remember being at our house as a child. It was hung there at Christmas, but will be hung here all year round.
I’m on some meds which are helping my depression, although I suspect the days of staying up late may be over. I’m still doing Blessing Blend on Wednesdays at, but my shows on are going to be a lot more irregular. I was getting warn out doing two shows a week every week. So I’m going to do special shows for Ninth Floor only. My first will be a Stevie Wonder show on May 12, the day before his birthday.
My next blog entry will probably be when we know the name and a few qualities about Phil’s next dog at the end of May or beginning of June. He was in the hospital last week for a day and at the ER for another for an infected leg. He’s back to work now although trying to stay off the prosthetic a little to let it heal more. He wants to be sure he’s ready for training with his new dog.

  1. I’m so glad the new meds are helping with your depression. And I’m excited for Phil. I can’t wait until you can share some details about his new dog.
