We had planned to combine a business trip to London with our anniversary. Visit with some old friends, and sail home on the Queen Mary. Well, Bacchus caused a postponement of those plans. That was okay. London and the Queen Mary will be there, as will our friends; we knew the likelihood of Bacchus being with us was slim. Unfortunately we were right.
That being said, last Wednesday was the last day we caught a mouse! If you've been reading this blog you know we discovered a mouse problem the day after he left us! It was suggested they represented his spirit. We laughed, but one can wonder... Three weeks to the day we caught the last one. We ensconced him in an ammo box, the idea being we'd catch a bunch of them and relocate them, but the little guy in the picture was the last. I took him far, far away and released him in a field.
The anniversary approached. September 11 we took dog stuff to the Humane Society Thrift Store. September 12th we shampooed carpet. All day. "Happy anniversary you old bat." "Happy anniversary you old goat."
So. This week we're going to take a short trip just to get away. Visit a couple of favorite restaurants in Montana in Butte and Big Fork. A drive through Glacier and a stop at a gallery in Columbia Falls. I can hardly wait. We need to get away.
In the meantime, if anyone reading this can tell me why my blog won't load yet I can post I'd appreciate some guidance. It has been slow loading for sometime and has now quit. I don't think upgrading to Snow Leopard on my Mac has anything to to with it. I think it is a Blogger problem.
I may get something up tomorrow - or not. If not I'll see you sometime around the end of next week.
