my mother told me this story this morning... last night Mr Shaffer came into her room tried to curl his boney self on the hard wood floor..tossed and turned and then left only to return an hour later..and then again after that. He finally came up to her bed and bumped her softly with his nose. She thought oh no..i hope he doesn't have to go out because he doesn't like to come right back in and it was late..plus she has a virus and doesn't feel well at all..so she got up to see open the door for him when she discovered that old Trudy was sound asleep in the middle of Mr. Shaffer's bed. Trudy is deaf and so old that now she sleeps very sound. Mom said the whole time she tried to rouse Trudy up..,Mr. Shaffer stood beside her yawning..then when his bed was finally cleared he plunked himself right down. Just thought i would share a Shaffer story. He could have snuck up on the sofa..or booted old Trudy out, but he is a gentleman. the pic is Trudy in her younger days..i got her from the shelter..last day..last hour. She has lived with mom for more then a decade now.
