Is there a 12 step program for my doggie???

This little dog is waiting for Matt to get the laser light. He will stand up like that waiting forEVER! Bless his little heart, he's not bright, but he's sweet and kind of cute.

From the first time he ever saw a laser light beam, he was addicted. He goes completely nuts and when you stop, he gets really crazy. Really, we need to check him in to the Betty Fido Clinic!

I'm doing this senseless post about my dog because I'm nervously awaiting morning. Morning when I will load up my suitcases after carefully weighing them several times. You know, after each time I added this little top or these capris, just in case, and drive to Pensacola to board a plane to California.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled about what I'll be doing when I get there. It's just the getting there that scares me. Yes, scares me badly! I do have meds to help.....oh, yea, and my sister is going with me....but we don't have a parachute. My brother offered to get one or even two if we decided not to tandem jump!

Once we get there, I will have my arms full of grandchildren. I'm just too excited about that particular part of this excursion.

Oh, and the other thing, I actually managed to get my makeup into a quart sized zip lock. In fact, in my purse I even put my breath mints into a zip lock baggie. I'm so rule oriented.

My sister then asked if I thought they would really go through our purses to which I, world traveler that I am, said, "gee, I guess they could". You see at our advanced ages, we have to take an extra pair of, shall we say delicates in our purses. You just never know.

So, if it crosses your mind, say a prayer for us for traveling mercies.

I most probably won't be near a computer and yes, I'm having withdrawals as we speak. No, I didn't do posts to go out every day as if I were here. I'll be gone about 8 days.

The only post I did was on politics, which I wisely decided to delete so that none of my 4 or 5 readers would leave. I'll let you guess as to what my politics are. If you guess correctly, I might even do a post. I get kind of opinionated about politics!

Please don't desert me! I'll be back.

I'll be thinking about you as you make your long journey to California. You will have a blast.

A belated happy birthday to Adam. What a handsome young man.

Enjoy the heat and sun.

NO, should be fairly cool with very low humidity. Please! I live in hot, humid Florida. It is so funny because every time I go to California it either rains or the temperatures are abnormal. Once when we were there it rained the entire time and I walked around singing "It never rains in Southern California!"

Well your grandchildren should be "sunny" anyway in spite of what the weather may do.

Enjoy your trip - - - I will still be looking for your posts when you get back.

Have a wonderful time!! The flight should be fine - hope you're not over weight on your luggage!

Leigh said...

Never would I dessert you. I will pray for you. I too am so afraid to fly, so I can relate to your fears.
I think by the time you get to those grandbabies- all will be forgotten. Know prayers are lifted.
shout at me when you return!

PS-my moms dog does thatsame thing...and also with waterhoses....
