Susie had cleaned our whole house as a surprise for when we arrived home, and she had a welcome home party. It was good to see everyone. I have to see if anyone took pictures. Then I can show you how good looking everyone is-I need to find recent pictures, though.
Susie walks me, too. Last week, though, she was very sick with Salmonella poisoning, so she wasn't up to it, then. Nancy and I stayed over at her house because we were worried. I did get to walk in her neighborhood a couple of times. Most of the time, though, I spent keeping an eye on Susie while I was in her bed-she has the greatest bed! She took me for a little walk tonight, and it's nice to be out with her, again.
The other night I woke Nancy because I got so excited that I was barking very loud. Why I hardly knew myself because I sounded so ferocious. She got up thinking someone was in the house, but it was even better than that! There were four deer right outside our window! I wonder where they hide during the day.
A couple of weeks ago, Nancy, Susan, and I took a ride down to Whistle Stop on one of Susie's day's off. Nancy had been to the cafe' the last time we camped at High Falls State Park, but we didn't see the place where the kids in the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" walked along the dam just before the girl's hat blew off and the boy got stuck on the tracks and lost his arm when the train ran it over trying to catch it. Nancy thinks everyone should see this movie. I practically know it by heart.

Willy (I guess that's his name) checked the roof, lubed the wheels (Nancy said she thinks that's what it's called), checked and caulked the roof, fixed the lock on the cargo door, fixed the electrical plug, and replaced both tail light units. We hope this will work because Nancy changed bulbs almost as often as she changed socks on the trip (Jack, quit exaggerating). Now, Nancy has to wash and wax it, and I won't even discuss the truck-I'm embarrassed to ride in it. Nancy said she's going to get it detailed. Rani's Mom, Miss Marie, took a ride with us when we picked it up. She lives in Utah, but we didn't know she was in town so we didn't get to spend a lot of time, together. We'll visit her the next time we go west because Nancy really wants to see Flaming Gorge and Centennial this time.
I'm a little out of practice writing a blog, but we like having the book from our last trip to look through and read about and relive our adventures. Teddy's human suggested that Nancy make her blog into a book. I got a card from Miss Martha which made me very happy. I also got a card from Miss Janis. I put them both in my book. Aunt Dorothy thought I "wrote" a book-I don't think she really knows what a blog is.
Nancy and I are hoping to be able to head out west, again, in the spring; maybe March. Aunt Marilyn and Susie will meet us in Reno, this time. That's the plan, for now. Aunt Dorothy asked me if Susie could fly out, but she doesn't know about Aunt Marilyn. She will be SO surprised.
In the meantime, I decided to start this blog because we're going camping in about two weeks. We're going to meet Miss T., Jazz, and Molly (Yippee! Haven't seen them in ages) and Gail, Paul, and Mac down at Reed Bingham. Everyone has to be home before we do, so we're thinking of going to see our friend, Bama Deb, in Gulf Shores.
Last Sunday, Nancy went to Miss Barbara's daughter's wedding. What a celebration it was. I don't believe I've ever seen so many happy people in one place.

|To quote Lauren, "I BE MARRIED!" What a beautiful couple. When I can get more pictures, I'll post them. I had to "steal" this one from Facebook.|
|Nancy says they haven't changed a bit. It was so good to see them and spend time, together.|
