Ta-Ta, Toodle-do, Adios

Okay guys and gals, we are off to Charleston, SC. How can I leave my dog, my cats my chickens and my blogger friends? I just looked out the kitchen window to see all my animals frolicking around and believing their life is such bliss, only to know they will be shocked tomorrow to find themselves locked in cages and their spoiling keeper gone. Oh woe is me:-(

I will add, however, that Slim enjoys the kennel. I believe she needs the rest from all her guard duty around here.

We've had to enlist some new guardians for the chickens and cats because my son and grandkids can't get here to house sit. I'm a little nervous, but I'm sure all will be well.

We shall attend the reunion of the mighty destroyer, the USS Mahan. It is our favorite reunion to attend each year and we can't wait to see all our friends. One of the descendents of Alfred Thayer Mahan will be in attendance again this year. We sat with him and his lovely wife at the banquet last year and I'm afraid I was a bit tipsy but didn't make a total fool of myself. The kitchen workers were very nice to direct me back out of the kitchen and toward the bathrooms. LOL

Be good and don't have too much fun without me!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Charleston, SC!!!!!
If you have time, I hope you go see that confederate submarine they have on display.
Oh, I am jealous!!
Enjoy the banquet and everything else you do there!
I know the animals will miss you, but you can get back to spoiling them as soon as you're done spoiling yourself on this trip.
Oh, and Jestine's is a great place to eat there.
I'm hankering for some of their great sweet tea!!

Judy, I did get tipsy again:-) Michelle and Mary Lou, our travel was fun and safe. Renea, I found the bathrooms everytime! Yes Moon, we are indeed looking forward to our own bed tonight! Jamie Dawn, we saw the Hunley and I can't wait to tell all about it. Amazing is understatement. We missed Jestine's but managed to eat lots and lots at lots of great places. Lucy, I did try more tea this year. Rachel, my chickens and cats were glad to see us. My girl Slim won't see us until tomorrow morning when we pick her up at the kennel. Thanks MyUtopia and all for your well wishes. Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.
