Tragedy and Triumph
This is the Schneider-Farris Family's Blog. Keep up with what we are doing by logging into this site regularly! (The reason this site is called "Tragedy and Triumph" is that when I first founded this site, my husband, Dan, had been in a horrible accident, and he recovered. His recovery was a miracle! Go back to the 2005 archives to read our story.)

Today, 3-22-17, I was riding my bike with my dog Duchess and then I saw a lost little dog.
I was able to look at the little dog's ID tag and called the owner who was at a meeting at work. She gave me her address.
I made friends with the little dog, who the owner told me was named Oscar. Oscar followed me and Duchess on my bike towards his home address.
When I got to the Oscar's house, I safely got the dog inside his backyard to greet the other family dog.
Oscar was a little Yorkie I think and very friendly and he sure liked to pee! It was funny seeing him lift his leg at every opportunity...since Duchess is a girl, I forgot about the lifting leg thing that male dogs do....
If I had not gone riding this morning, that poor little dog may have never returned home. He looked so scared when he was lost, but then looked so happy when I made friends with him!

I've been listening to all of the CDs since I've returned to Colorado, and I have come to the conclusion that she sings all the Hebrew and Shabbat songs I love AND she also sings songs from musicals. How awesome is that!?!?
On her Songs for Shabbat and Broadway Melodies albums, she sings one of my favorite songs, There Can Be Miracles When You Believe. That song has special significance for me since it is the song I played over and over again in the hospital after my husband's horrible accident in 2005. I truly believed there could be a miracle and that he would live, and he did!
Anyway, thank you, Nancy Linder, for your wonderful music!

I was riding my Razor Lux Scooter happily in a California beach community and at the same time Sandy and Kelly were talking about me! When we saw one another OUT OF THE BLUE, we waved to one another and then I got in their car and we had a short visit!

(Long ago, they had identical beards and it was impossible to tell them apart, but Mike has a longer beard than Pat, so now its easy to know which twin is which!)
Mike and Pat say that they are 37 with backward digits or almost 37 twice!....
