This is the backyard of the house where I grew up. Well, we moved here when I was about to start the sixth grade (from just across the highway — in the same school district, even). My folks still live here.
These days I’m mostly putzing. Mufasa and I only go on very short walks here because it’s so hot. One night I even waited til 1 a.m. to take him. He got his doggie passport today. Everything is ready. I found out that unlike other airlines, Continental will fly dogs in the summer because they use air conditioned facilties. Mufasa and I both will fly from Atlanta on August 9. It’s amazing how once I found the right path, everything is just falling into place.
My bags are mostly packed. Now I will go to the beach and enjoy being at home for a while. Thursday we’re off! Thanks everybody for your great messages and missives. So many of you will come to visit there. We’ll have big fun!
I’m looking forward to walking everywhere in Switzerland, and that Mufasa can go everywhere with me — he’s such a good, mellow traveler.
