In response to Edge and Chari: I just LOOOOVE my Hyundai Santa Fe. Love it. It’s a great ride, comfy and roomy with enough space for us, the dogs and all of our stuff. I’m really, really pleased with it, especially after driving it through this rotten, cold, and slushy winter. Looking forward to doing the first “spring cleaning” on it – the first really decent day that comes along and I am out there. I’m also looking forward to riding around with windows down and the sun roof open! In fact, we’re doing a little road trip this weekend….
We’re driving halfway to New Jersey this weekend to get our new doggie! Kibbles (whose name will be changed to Joxer, post haste, says Mel) will be coming home with us on Sunday. The adoption turned out to be a very long process, ridiculously long. It wasn’t really the fault of the all-volunteer rescue organization, but more about the woman who is fostering the dog. I’m not going to go into it just now, I think I’ll wait until the dog is in my possession. Several times, Mel just wanted to give up and start looking for another dog. After all, in most cities you can simply walk into the local pound or SPCA, pay the adoption fee, and walk out with a dog. (Almost) no questions asked.
Lastly, I almost split my gut last night reading a letter written by the Bombed Empress’ brother-in-law. (Check the April 7th entry.) This funny guy is a member of the British forces, his company just having reached Baghdad.
