Well Amigos, The Red Man sends Paw Snaps and Twirls to all of you for your kind bark backs and well wishes during the past several days which we were just able to see a few minutes ago due to interrupted utility services. As the old woman Slow is fond of saying, one day this computer age will come crashing down around us when nobody can sign on to anything and then what can we do…turns out not much.

The Method

For two days men from the neighboring town of Sumter and the neighboring state of North Carolina, as well as several local teams, worked to bring Casa de Canterbury back from Lost in Space to Found on Facebook. We are grateful to these men for their hard work above and beyond the call of duty and send Mega Paw Snaps and Twirls from The Red Man.

Chelsea waited for crumbs from Pretty’s emergency chocolate cake in the first sunshine we’ve had since forever this afternoon while the men worked all around us.

Which way did the cake go?

Don’t know, don’t care

As the past two nights fell around us, the men worked, Slow sipped adult beverages and Pretty, bless her heart, kept smiling.

Spike was spooked – who’s surprised?

So Sports Fans, all’s well that ends well, as The Red Man is fond of saying, and I, for one, will rest better tonight knowing that my night-light is burning once again. On the other paw, many of our amigos and amigas in the Columbia area and across our state are not so lucky. We will be thinking of them tonight and hoping for better days and nights for all very soon.

Get me outta here, Percy…now I lay me down to sleep…etc.
