OK, I want to write something to post, but I don’t have much time. I got home a little before noon today from a business trip to California and I leave tomorrow morning for a week in Lyon (France) for another business meeting.
So, here’s the list of who’s in the house right now:
Near the end of July, we’re going to take a trip to Florida to visit our 40-foot sailboat, Dream SeQuel. For a variety of reasons, we’ve decided that we’re going to drive! It’s “only” 2400 or 2500 miles The major reason we’re driving is that renting a car for three weeks while we’re [...]
For a number of weeks now, Barbara and I have been sleeping on separate floors of our 3-story house. Most of the time, she sleeps on the couch in the family room on the main floor, while I (if I’m not out of town somewhere) usually sleep in the bedroom on the upper floor. We [...]
I have a recommendation to make to everyone…get yourself an angel who’ll look after you as well as Steve is looking after Peyton. Another package came for Peyton with more duck treats! And I now know that Steve has a great sense of humor because in the box addressed to Peyton, along with the treats, [...]
We’ll blog more about the details later, but I wanted to tell our readers that we set some kind of new record last week. In one week, we placed for adoption six (6) dogs! It happened so fast that I found myself quietly crying one evening because I couldn’t remember all the details and I [...]
I’m back from Korea. Got in mid-afternoon on Saturday after a long, but uneventful trip involving a taxi, three planes, and a train. Don’t ask… Barbara picked me up at the airport with Abby and Star in the car, which was really, really nice. The girls (all three of them ) were happy [...]
After all of the doom-and-gloom over the past month, punctuated by the occasional travelogue, I thought I’d give a brief update on everybody else.
Star and Abby (whom we adopted ourselves) are doing great. Star continues to be a bit anxious about life in general, but especially about getting enough attention, while Abby is thrilled to [...]
Well, we got home rather late last night (after 10:30, I think). Amanda, bless her heart, was still here waiting for us. She’d gone to Cottonwood to bring Chewy home before we got here, which was wonderful. Of course, we were exhausted, but it was great — GREAT! — to see all the kids (and, [...]
Gee, I’ve been on the road for a mere four days, which for me is nothing! But I miss the kids and Barbara a lot. Now, here’s part of the problem: I’m used to being away on business about 50% to 60% of the time, sometimes for three and four weeks at a shot. And [...]
