Post 512: Molly Moon and other matters…

My sister e-mailed this message to me this morning:

“I was amazed at the number of posts you received on Molly Moon and Sox and I appreciate all of them. I will never give up on finding Sox, but Molly provides some distraction from thinking and worrying about him 24 hours a day.”

Thanks to you who commented!  Oh, and it turns out there is an ice cream chain on the West Coast called  “Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream” shop. My sister’s grandkids knew about it, and let my sister know about the name.


It’s official. I just passed my fifth year as a volunteer with the RSVP program in my community. Though I’m not much for awards because I never know what to do with certificates, pins, and the like, I appreciate being appreciated. If being appreciated involves a certificate and a pion, well, I can deal with it! Here’s the pin:


I guess I posted that in a size large enough to see…! I mostly volunteer once a week at the local military museum. Though I also drive veterans to VA clinic appointments, that’s more occasional since there are other ways for these people to get to appointments.

  1. So happy os many have been supportive of your sister and what she is going through. Such a sweet person to adopt from a shelter and give a loving pet a new home.
    I think Molly Moon is going to be one very happy, loved girl.
    Congrats on your 5th year with RSVPm, and what a nice pin and people who do what you do are a blessing to all of us.
    TY for doing what you do and give the boys a belly rub.

      • Volunteering is a family tradition. I don’t volunteer anywhere near as much as my mother and father did, but I resolved I would do volunteer work once I retired and had time. The program (RSVP) is huge in this county, with – I think I’m not exaggerating! – hundreds of volunteers doing everything from what I do to helping at senior services, the library, schools, etc. Many volunteers have been at it 10, 20, or more years. As for the belly rubs, that’s the most fun part of all! Andy opted for a head rub and ear scritch instead, but to each his own, eh!?
