We Will See You Next Weekend.

I'm heading west to spend some time with my Dad who is 97 and in declining health.  Abby Lab will be home with my husband who is staying behind as he has a local grandma who is doing very poorly and he needs to be close by in case she passes away and he's also in the middle of installing all of our storm windows for which he installed new glass this year.

I will miss them both, and Blogville, but Dad does not have internet and though there is wifi at a local coffee stand, it won't let me post things on blogger due to their wifi security restrictions so I"m not toting a laptop out there.

Pray for safe travels for me and I hope to talk to you all sometime next weekend on my return. (where I will probably weigh 3 pounds more because of the Tillamook Marionberry Pie Ice Cream)

See you all at the Halloween Paw-rade!
