I'm back
« on: October 15, 2005, 11:59:03 am »
Well, I just got back from a trip of a lifetime.  A paddlewheel cruise up the Columbia River following the Lewis and Clark expedition.  I was with my family and the ship was actually powered with paddles, went through many locks and tour buses followed us along the roads to take us on many side trips.  I learned too much and didn't get drunk like I sould have.  heehee.  We were completely isolated from everything for eight days.

On my recorder when we got home was a message from the convalescent home that we did our first job and they want to schedule another visit because they all enjoyed it so much.  Made me feel very good.  We are picking up our new trainie (final name, Hobo) tomorrow.  happy happy

It looks like I missed a lot of weird  things and I cannot figure it all out.   I will keep reading and try to make sense of it all.  Any hints you can give me along the way will help.  I always miss everything. I missed all of you and don't know how to go back over more than a few days of posting to read them in order.  Oh well.

A happy dog is a dog with a job.
