Heading out of here

Busy day here today as we are packing up to head north and get out of the tropics and the heat, heat, heat!! Going to North Carolina to spend some time with my brother and his wife before we head to Ohio to visit daughter and family.

Love Florida, but we still have trouble adjusting to the heat in the summer. The spring rain is slow in coming, so it is also very dry. I will still say and always say that running the air conditioner in the summer in Florida is a lot more fun than running the furnace all winter long up north.

Will be in touch and will keep up reading all your blogs. Unfortunately, Kippy, the Bichon, is figuring out that she will be in for a long car ride and it is not her favorite thing. Will need to shut the bedroom doors before she crawls under the beds in hopes we forget her. And, it looks like rain is in the forecast further north, and she is deathly afraid of windshield wipers and rain on the roof. It is the child that never left home..


  1. May you trip be safe and enjoyable. Hope that you continue to post, so that we know how you're doing!

  2. Have a safe trip and enjoy time with your family. God speed.

  3. Poor Kippy, I hope the trip is too traumatic for him. Have a safe trip

  4. Kathy, I have sat in the closet rocking Kippy during bad thunderstorms. She's just like a child. Still praying for Chloe.

  5. Safe travels and enjoy your family visits...

  6. Whoops! I thought Kippy was a boy. By the way Chloe is feeling fine and wanted to play today. Still haven't heard from the vet though. Thanks so much for the prayers.

  7. Hi Susan,

    Thanks for stopping by earlier! :-)

    Kippy sounds like my parents' dog, Mable. She's also afraid of the rain as well and curls up either in your lap or next to your legs for comfort. So cute....

    Enjoy your trip with your family and safe travels!
