The first full day of vacation wasn’t too bad if I do say so myself. Nice, relaxed and lazy! Just as vacation should be, right?
Yup, and I am going to enjoy it and nothing will give me a problem!! Did you just hear screeching brakes? You should have because that was Mother Nature and with a flash of light and an evil Muwhahahahaha, I was saddled with Nature’s Curse. I am a bit miffed about this as it always seems to happen to me when I am least prepared. I am just thankful that Mac1949 reminded me to pack essentials in the event this should happen. But why now? Why couldn’t you wait until after Monday and we get back from the Catskills? *Pout*
My mom and I had a very pleasant evening. She was able to get out of work a little early and spent some time talking before we left for supper. I learned a ton about shelties. My mom loves shelties and is very active with NVSR – the Northern Virginia Sheltie Rescue. They are having a picnic at the end of September and my mom organizes the bake sale. So if you are in Northern Virginia next month, check it out and pick up some yummy stuff for you and your dog!! Anyway, she just
adopted Sammy at the beginning of the year after she had lost her previous one, Jasmine, to old age. I have no idea what Sammy’s previous owners did to him but he is a bowl of quivering jelly! Even after 8 full months of living with my mom who pampers the heck out of him, he is still timid with almost everyone. No worries though, I am slowly wearing him down!!
While we were driving to Manassas for supper – with my seatbelt stuck on “decapitate” – we saw a deer along the way! (I mentally kicked myself because I had planned on bringing my camera and didn’t.) It was both a good and a bad thing. It was amazing to see a wild deer very close but it was obvious that she was struggling and probably sick. She was amazingly thin and you could see her ribs.
When my mom moved to Aldie, her development was pretty much the only fish in town – or at least it seemed that way to me. The area was not developed and was surrounded by tree groves and tiny winding roads. Now it is being ripped up for more development, which is a shame. The area was beautiful and it was wonderful to go through. And I imagine all this encroaching construction has compounded that poor deer’s problems – as well as other herds.
I am not likely to post until we return from the Catskills. So keep an eye out next week for more adventures while being out of Florida!!
