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!

The Winner IS....

First, I can't thank our GABE hostess, Twinkie, enough for coming up with the brilliant GABE idea - I know I has a lot of new friends - you are genius Twink! I was furry sci-fi techie in picking my winner and wrote every commenter's name on separate pieces of paper. Then I put the 48 pieces of paper in my old hat (that I won't ever wear again) and Dad held the hat up high. Mom reached in and picked one piece of paper and... it was the name of my new pal, Mayzie! Congrats to you, Mayzie! Enjoy the treat dispenser and have a gggrrreat Monday!
