The weather report said we’d have some bad weather this week. As it turned out, they were wrong (we just had rain this morning). It couldn’t have been better. It’s cool at night and 70s in the day. Just perfect. The four of us have had a great time, together. Terry had to leave Friday morning, and we have missed her but we're already planning another get together. The gals have all been so good to Bogey and he loved them. Bogey has had a blast. He and Mollie get along just fine, but Bogey is much like Jack and Lizzie because he gets along with all dogs. I have enjoyed walking him on the trails as much as he has enjoyed going. He's easy and stays with me on the trail. He's cute he'll run ahead, turn to look and come bounding back, then turn around and run back. Reed Bingham is a beautiful park--not too big with bathrooms that are very clean and great trails for me because they are sandy and flat. It's a pretty park. I mainly took pictures of "you know who". Once Teresa got here we had a campfire. I love sitting around a fire at night--get a few women together and we have a lot of laughs.

Yesterday, we were on another short trail I don’t know how many times, but Bogey is always ready to go so I was looking forward to the longer trail. I tried, but I couldn’t do it because of a freak accident that happened on Thursday. We were walking around the campground and stopped to talk to some people and a big dog on a long lead came running up to greet it’s master and caught my ankles with the long lead he was on and flipped me so fast I didn’t know what happened. My feet went up above my head and I came crashing down onto the left side of my back, shoulder, and neck. Terri, Patricia, and Teresa couldn’t believe my feet went so high in the air. I crashed so hard on the ground I felt like I had shaken brain syndrome. When all was said and done, I had to laugh because the first thing I remember was sweet Terry saying, "Oh, I'm so sorry I couldn't get to you in time." I can tell you I hurt every where there is to hurt. I was particularly concerned about my neck since I've had surgery there before. I only grazed my hip so that's a relief--don't think I did any damage there. I was fortunate that I was on grass, not cement. Enough of that--I'm no worse for the wear. Here are some pictures of the park. Worth a stop for anyone in the area.
The trailer worked out fine in the rain this morning because the pups were able to go on the bed and I had two small chairs that fit great right in the trailer and the couch so we sat in there and gabbed. Weather is beautiful, again, now. Tonight we’re going to the Catfish House for dinner—it’s right outside the park. I take Bogey with me and he moans when I first leave, but then goes to sleep.
I ordered a raised bed, like Mollie has, so I wouldn’t ruin the very nice bed that Bogey has by putting it on the ground when we are lounging around outside. Instead, I’ll leave it in the back seat of the truck and use the raised bed for around the campsite. He sleeps in bed with me so I have his comfort covered. LOL
Tomorrow we’ll be packing up to leave. Fortunately, tonight I’m feeling better. All is well that ends well.
