I seem to be in the room alone at the moment! 'Sokay. I talk to myself all the time anyway.

Thought I'd show you progress.
Tikka saw where I had placed Betsy and decided she would do likewise.

Sena takes everything to our bed, including water bottles. She can open the sports cap but sees no reason to close them.

I soak up as much water as possible then lay down a towel followed by one of lily's pee pads then another towel.

I know your pain, Sue!

What an amazing time for you all. Stressful, yes, but at least it's good stress. Hang in there, eat mindfully, and buckle up for the ride!

Martin (driving right now) wants to know where you are & how far you plan to drive in a day. My tip is: don't stop at Enon Beach CG, Enon, Ohio. 😲

We have been avoiding tolls, so are slower than most, finding r o u g h, but beautiful roads & byways. Just now approaching the Atlantic coast to pick up US 1 for a whike. Eventually, we will be on I-95.

Drive well, be safe, see ya soon!

Wow! What a menagerie! And you are really brave to go thru such extensive renovations with that crowd. I'd suggest you move into your coach to avoid all the dusty chaos, but where ever would you put all those critters?

One more pic before I shut down for the afternoon: In NH, on the back roads, you can save lots of money when resurfacing. Just don't cover up the perfectly good previously painted yellow centerlines.

Whoot! Kansas is getting California weather for the next week or so... 80's daytime, 60's at night!
So , how can I be tired after a mini vacation? Both Bob and I were tired when we got back from Branson.... and I had to get up early today to get to Farmer's market, but I came home with good deals!
