My husband and I drove from Colorado to Illinois last Thursday/Friday, picked up Sassy the Scottish Terrier on Saturday morning, then drove back to Colorado over Saturday and Sunday. The dog traveled better than the humans did. Road trips are exhausting at our age. Sassy, of course, is much younger. She seemed to remember me even though it had been a year since I saw her, and she took to my husband right away even though they’d never met.
On the way home, we experienced one unpleasant, unleashed dog encounter…but no one got hurt. We suffered through high winds and blowing dust in Kansas which has left me with a dust allergy attack. We ate a couple of meals that might have been the reason for my intestinal upset yesterday….or perhaps I caught the bug that was going around at my mom’s assisted living facility. One of the motels we stayed at tried to put us in a room in which the temperature was about 100 and the air conditioner didn’t cool…but we did get moved to a room with a more acceptable environment.
And we survived.
We arrived back home late Sunday afternoon and introduced Sassy Dog to Katie Cat.
Monday and Tuesday have been interesting. I’ve tried to take some pictures but haven’t had a chance to load them up yet and see if they’re good enough to post. Hopefully I can get that done before the weekend.
Stay tuned. I’ll tell more soon.
Meanwhile, please join me Thursday in welcoming one of my fellow Five Star authors, Jacqueline Seewald.
