My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Flight 57 & a few of my favorite things

We are off to San Rafael, California this morning.  I love to travel.  It is such an adventure. 

 Its a short adventure for Cricket and me with meetings.  We are excited to get to see  Mimi and Cabana for a quick visit.    Cricket is an easy traveller.  I think she loves the opportunity to show off her skills in new terrain.   Just a few of our tips and favorite things that make our travel easy.  I love Cricket's fold up bowl.  I love Cricket's blanket that helps her feel like anywhere we go is home.  I love that it fits easily on the outside of my suitcase with a clip so as soon as we get on the plane I can put it on the floor in front of my feet.  (I wish it matched my suitcase better.)  I love my little suitcase that is an easy carry on and also has handles on the back so it can be a backpack if needed.  I put Cricket's food in bags the size of a serving and they fit nicely in the side pockets.  After they are emptied, they make for a great doggie bag.  I love Cricket's predictability.   This is my first trip taking my ipad2.  I'm hoping to learn some new tricks from some of the other board members.

Missing you already, Steve.  Take good care of you and also my Fall Mums that I am loving.

Becky, I haven't commented for a while so I figure I'd make one now.

It's good that you love travelling! You're still looking at the positives of life as usual, which is something I wish I could do more often lol! Have a good time at your meetings, and Cricket give your Mum kisses from me and Troy!

Hey, you changed your shirt! It was great to see you and Cricket, Becky! I wish things had gone a bit smoother in finding my way around, parking, having more time, etc! But you are so easygoing--hope to see you again in December!!

PS I loved my little goody bag, especially the shirt and Kisses!
