November 6-8


When I first got my girl Stella, she was from 3 1/2 months residence at the Shelter.  She was the world's worst walker, but every day we seem to make some progress.

The part that was the most fun was people would stop us and ask her name and when I would say "Stella" they would, to a person, do the whole Brando thing, "Stell..ahhhhh!"  It would of course, make me laugh, and make the doer laugh as well.  Stella never having seen
Brando in one of his greatest roles in Streetcar Named Desire, never got the joke.    However, she found pleasure in the merriment of those who laughed and got into a tail wagging thing which was her little laugh, I guess.

A good laugh is one of life's greatest pleasures to me.  I come from a family who, to a person, thinks they are the funniest (me included.)

It never ocurred to me when I named Stella, this would be one of my favorites, but it is. 

Jo, Stelllah and Zkhat
