Please forgive Mom for her sporadic writing. She asked me to fill in for her until she gets back. Her life has been a whirlwind the past few weeks and while I know she is having fun, I miss her like crazy. I hope she doesn't mind that I've uploaded a few pictures to show you what she has been up to.
First, she hosted a luncheon at our house for some of the finest ladies in Washington, DC. Why, I've never seen such beautiful, well-dressed women! I wanted so bad to get a closer
sniff look, but unfortunately Violet has a tendency to yap-yap-yap- when we have company, so I was put in charge of staying outside and tending to her.
Then, Mom (and Dad) were invited to judge the Mrs. Missouri pageant. Mom used to be a Mrs. Missouri, you know - waaaayyy back before I was born. That's her and Dad behind the new Mrs. Missouri - on the second step.
She was back for just a few days before she flew off to Indiana for a speaking engagement. (Mom always talks with her hands.)
She also did a book signing while she was in Indiana. She had fun, but I know she missed me and she got home as fast as she could!
For about a month, our life was back to normal. Plenty of hugs, lots of belly-scratches, and long, long walks. But then.....
Mom was off on another adventure and she took Dad with her again! This time they were gone for almost two weeks! Two weeks! It was their anniversary so they went sailing in the Bahamas. Dad is an awesome sailor, but Mom? Well, from what I hear she sits on the bow and dangles her legs over the side, looking for dolphins. Poor Dad.
They're home now, and right now she's upstairs resting, getting ready for her next trip - New York City!
Which means I am going to be responsible for taking care of this little squirt again. But that's okay. Mom has promised me that I am going to get take a very long road trip with her after Christmas. A very special road trip to a very special place!
Until next time,
