The trip was fun - and overly eventful. But that's not always a bad thing, is it? The house - so far, so good. It's the first place we've bought that hasn't smelled of cat pee, been infested with bugs or garbage - or both, that things worked as they were supposed to - what a lovely little house. We went to visit Cecil and Bertha yesterday afternoon and then off to Tommy's for dinner. His house is off road, no cell phones, no internet - and his garage is literally twice the size of his house. He said no women participated in it's design and he likes it so that's that. I took off this morning about 6 am to head off to Janet and Diane's. It was raining (of course) but since it was Sunday I made good time and got here around 11 am. Jackson looks great despite being deathly ill just a few days ago and is back to being his normal self. Janet is still recovering from shoulder surgery but everyone is doing well. We went out to a mexican restaurant for my birthday (you can never have too many birthday dinners!) and then to the book store. Their newly adopted dog is cute but it's hard getting used to a 6 lb dog when mine is nothing more than a big palooka. We are heading back to East Stroudsburg in the morning to spring Miss Pants from the pokey and then off until Wednesday. It's been a good week.
