A Lucky Dog

I'm a lucky dog today, walking around in sunshine and lunching at the Lucky Dog Diner.
Hubby's in the hospital nearby, unable to join me after a second knee surgery.
 
 
The Lucky Dog is a rehabbed diner full of quirky bits,  colors on the loose, and a flair for dogginess.
 
 
 
 
 Incidentally, the food is great.
 Although they have a long menu for hot dogs, I like the Green Goddess salad with fish~~
fresh salad greens with cucumbers, tomatoes, craisins. kalamata olives and feta cheese.
  
 
The Lucky Dog offers these words to live by.

However.
  I got what I wanted and feel very lucky: Mr. J. came through surgery with flying colors
and the doctors think he is one terrific patient who works hard in therapy
 and gets great results from their handiwork.

A cheerful place to be while your sweetheart is in the hospital. It's great that he knows the importance of therapy, painful as it can be at first.

I'm glad you hubby came through with flying colors! Rehab is the secret behind successful joint surgery. That little "doggie" joint looks fun and frankly anything with Feta cheese is wonderful! Hope your hubby gets home soon and you have a good weekend.

I love those colours. Looks like a fun place to hang out - even (or especially) when you're alone & waiting for your husband to get out of the hospital. I hope he's fully recovered as soon as possible.

Ah, those colours were like a shot of vitamins for me this morning ; you are indeed lucky to live under such an incredibly blue sky, I'd have to photoshop mine to death to get such an effect ! All the best to you and your model patient !xx
