We have reservations at a campground next weekend, which is just staying in New York State's yard instead of ours. We had hoped to host Maria and MaryGail, but Maria's brand-new job had other plans for her.
Carat has been in a snit ever since she heard. Please, Carat, eat the hand-minced free-range organic chicken in mouse sauce that Annie prepared! Look! Omnomnomnom! They'll just be visiting another time ... OW! That wasn't necessary! I won't be treated ... OW!

Today the water tank was sanitized for your protection. Annie drank a nice big glass of the water, and after watching her for a few hours I feel comfortable letting her drink another glass.

We're living here in the Duck, for the most part. We still hit the house to spend time with the other herd, but our needs are cared for here. We were even listening to SuperGold out here tonight, until I realized that 80's music is now considered classic. It isn't. Don't even defend it; you are not hungry like the wolf.

I know what kinds of things I will take with me when we eventually leave here. Tell me what you would take.

That cat paw shot is pure art.

And I don't think I've ever seen such a civilized turlet-brush holder! Well done.

I wish wholeheartedly that I could claim the cat paw. I loved it from the moment I saw it.

The potty-hygiene equipment was a new one on me, too. We found it in my dad's house; who knew he was so highfalutin'?

At first, I thought that was Carat's paw, but then I remembered how the orange on her front paw sort of twist up and around the front of her leg... and then I just got sad and missed her. I can't believe I have to go to Phillie the same weekend we were supposed to go camping with you guys and Carat :-(

You know, if you get another free weekend, you could just come here and stay with us in the Duck. You could be one of the Driveway People like we are. It's not a really, really nice driveway like Sampson State Park, but it's not Walmart parking lot, either. Plus, you know, Carat lives here!

i would take a road atlas...nothing like looking at a paper map, swiss army knife (and any other tools Annie deems necessary), first aide kit(see knife in previous section), pepper spray, music and NPR downloads, two umbrellas, a good camera, a way to watch movies(netflix?), books, a few articles of clothing, and two luxury items each...then hit the road's one long vacation...

Nice! Yes, I agree about the paper map. We got a huge laminated trucker's atlas so that we can spill coffee on it (sweet tea south of Pennsylvania) and know how to avoid weigh stations and agricultural checkpoints.

Pepper spray! Had not considered that, but good idea. My Swiss army knife would also be useful in that case. Hold on there, buddy, while I extend the ballpoint pen and turn on this LED and sketch a quick portrait of you. Would you say your eyes are green or hazel?

I hope the cats don't count as my luxury items.

The cats get to bring their own luxury items

Haha! I think we are the cats' luxury items.
