We're OK in OK
Stumpy was bound and determined that I wasn't going to leave her behind this morning
I asked her to move and she did (ever so slightly)
When I asked her to move away from the door, she moved just enough that I had to trip over her to get to the door
She's not happy (as noted by the "talking" ears)
We finally got in the car and once again I was made aware of a weird emotional attachment I've developed
Those are Alf's nose prints, left over from his ride to California in July. When I see them. I can see Alf sitting beside me, looking forward to his new life.
We sure do miss that boy!
The reason I mention this embarrassing attachment, is because with the sun setting earlier they are beginning to become a problem. I either have to get off the road, early to reduce the glare from the nose prints or wash the window. I got off the road early today :)
Anyways, we made it to Oklahoma. I think Stumpy may think I am pondering replacing her as navigator. She did a pretty good job today
When she wasn't staring at me
But I did catch her dozing once...
Stumpy has entered Norwood's Fright Week Monstah Mash Up Costume Parade! We won't be able to get her a costume so I sent Norwood a picture I had taken of Stumpy, earlier this year,when she was clearly possessed!. It's not as contest, but for each entry Norwood is going to send a piece of green paper to Khyra, to help with funding Khyra's XTerra Transport. Khyra's Kheeper/Mom/chauffeur does at least one transport every weekend, helping dogs who have been pulled from abusive situations and high kill shelters on their way to a happily ever after forever home. Last weekend she did transports on Friday, Saturday and Sunday! Goooooooo Norwood!!!
1,645 miles down, 1,091 miles to go. We've passed the halfway point.
