I'm excited to report that I took a trip! A short trip. 36 miles, to be exact. But for two nights I slept in a bed not my own in Daytona Beach Shores, with a magnificent view of the beach.
Buddy also slept away from me for the first time since I adopted him. He spent the couple of days I was at the beach at Fancy Pets in Lake Mary, where he goes for daycare once every week or two. Other than giving me a cold shoulder for about half an hour, was fine when I picked him up. Even more important, two weeks later, when I took him for daycare, he didn't hesitate at all. He was excited to see his human and canine friends again.
Since it was a good experience for both of us, we're going again in a couple weeks. And, going again in January, depending on the Covid situation.
Meanwhile, I'm enjoying being at home. Cooking, taking Buddy for walks and enjoying a peaceful, quiet life.
I'm planning to start doing more posts. Many with short memories of my life/travels. Like this one:
I had a layover in Atlanta on my way home one weekend in the early 2000's. My flight was delayed, I was exhausted and was just vegging in a deserted concourse in the wee hours of the morning. A cleaning woman was humming "Amazing Grace" as she emptied the trash bin near me. I started humming harmony. Her humming got a bit louder and so did mine. Then we both started singing. Quietly, at first, then full out. By the time we finished we were both grinning like little kids. We hugged and she went back to work and I went back to my Kindle.
