This handsome red fellow is Sir Bors the Red. He just won the NH Health Care Association’s Volunteer of the Year award.
Bors does rounds at the nursing home with Robin on Wednesdays. It’s quite amazing what kind of positive responses he gets from the residents. A lot of the old folks are very protective about him. One time I stopped by to pick him up for the ride home, and a resident with a walker came shuffling up to the van and wanted to know where I was taking the dog. She had only ever seen him with Robin and wanted to make sure I wasn’t abducting him or anything. I’m fairly convinced she would have started whipping me with her walker if I hadn’t given her a satisfactory explanation.
We also got another bit of news—Robin’s name got plucked from the hat as the winning ticket for our telco’s “Home Connect” sweepstakes. She won a 42” HDTV, a gaming console, a surround sound speaker setup, and six months of credit on the DSL bill. OMG MONDAY CAN YOU STOP SUCKING?
