Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Playing "Tagged" and Sugar's Contest Picture

Oh my non-dogness! Before I go into the story, Sedona (http://tollertales.blogspot.com/) tagged me a while ago, and I haven't gotten to "play" before today, so here are my instructions for the game:

1. Open your "My Photos" folder and select the 6th folder.
2. Select the 6th photo in that folder.
3. Post the photo along with the story behind it.
4. Tag five of your friends to do the same thing.

Sounds like fun, huh? You never know what might show up on someone's blog!!!

This is what came up when Ma followed all the above rules and she's a bit red in the face. For the last seven or eight years, she's been writing (mostly editing) a book that was published last December. This is a picture of her answering questions at a reading she did in New York last February. (Mom's photo files are alphabetized rather than arranged by date.) It was apparently a successful trip, but I missed her a lot cause I didn't get to go, but I'm very proud of her! I know that a ton of you doggies have been tagged to do this, and it is interesting to find out what pops up. So any of you pups out there who have not been tagged to play this fun game, please consider yourselves... Tagged!!!

And this photo is for Sugar's (http://I-need-a-sugar-fix.blogspot.com) contest - I may be a little late, but finally found the picture I remembered I had - I am "not where I am supposed to be" hehe!

My assistant is always impressed (and jealous) when she hears of someone who has actually been able to write an entire book - she would love to do it, but thinks of the task as overwhelming. So what is the title of this book??? And what is it about???

Congratulations to your Ma!

You have the same problem that we do -- our picture has NOTHING to do with dogs!

Guess I can try my photobucket instead. I have a whole section devoted to Marge. :)
