I've been trying to load a picture, but it's not working, so something must be wrong with the server. I was going to put up a picture of Peanut on vacation. Where was he on vacation? Why right here at home, and it's a vacation 365 days of the year!
And I, too, am on my first day of vacation! And believe me, I need it! So all of you who can post topics, please feel free for the next week to do so!
Daisy arrives tomorrow and Friday is our get-togethers. The plan is (and correct me if I'm wrong)
Lunch at Poncho Villa's at 11 (if Stacey can make it, if not, maybe 12:30?) We'll have to wait on Stacey,and she's currently off in Washington D.C. on a veterans trip. Then dinner at the VFW for schnitzel on Friday, then off to Pam's for games. Pam, please e-mail directions to your house! You all should have a Pet People roster of contact info. The weather should be nice, too.
Adrienne arrives Thursday night and Daisy and I will pick her up Friday for lunch and then some Clarksville sightseeing.
As to vacations: The Boss and I haven't gone anywhere since 2001 when we went on a Delta Queen riverboat cruise. We had a friend's daughter stay here and pet sit. Since then, I've gone to PA by myself while he took care of the mutts. It's just so hard to go on vacation with so many pets. I have a friend who owns a pet-sitting service which I'd be happy to use, but I live 20 miles out of town, which makes it difficult. Next year, The Boss has to go to Vale, Colorado in October for a business meeting, and I'd like to go along. So I have a year to find someone to stay here. I pay great! I asked Daisy if she wanted to come down and do it and get away from her life for a week, so maybe that will work out.
I wouldn't mind boarding the dogs, but I won't with the cats, as they are traumatized by change, especially Catfish. I could probably find someone to come over and take care of their needs, which involves simply filling the bowls and cleaning the box!
Well, I'm off to do some minor cleaning before Daisy arrives. E-mail any change in party plans!
And once again, any Pet People reader who wants to join us for either lunch, dinner and more, you know where to find us. I'll post the exact lunch time once we hear from Stacey!
