Tick Tock…

May 28th, 2007

Per our usual adventurous tendancies, it is begining to look as if this little snow-birding family may be leaving a day early from a different city.   That is to say, the forcast for Phoenix on Thursday is 105, and the forcast for Washington, DC is 90.   Airlines won’t fly dogs if the tempurature is above 85 on either end.   Great.

So we are toying with the idea (my brilliant brainstorm) of driving to Las Vegas on Wednesday night and catching a   redeye that will deliver us in DC in the wee hours of morning; long before the mercury begins to rise.   A red eye from Phoenix wouldn’t work because the heat tends to remain here until about midnight anyway, so chances are even the last fight out would find us in the 100’s, and we are starting to question whether or not it is wise to keep crossing our fingers.

So we have decided to all take a nap.

Denial, my friends, is the surest way not to have to make up your mind about something pressing.

Seriously, though, the clock is ticking and our departure may infact become another story to relay in the not-too-distant future.   Speaking of stories, time is running out to submit your “Living the Dream” story to not only win a super-cool t-shirt from LTDChix, but to have your story published in this blog.   Send me your funniest, sweetest or hysterical story by midnight tonight!   (That would be midnight Pacific time… I need to show love to my readers out here in the west!)   The competition is heating up, so don’t miss out!

    Hey kids! If you must travel somewhere – why not Albuquerque??? (Do you begin to sense a continuing theme here?) We are not all that hot yet! and if Dudley would get bumped for some reason, you have – you guessed it! – an aunt and an uncle who could board said dog and schlep him to the airport later in the week – or at least by the end of October when it cools down here.:grin: We are at your disposal. xxoo Aunt Syl

    Aunt Syl,
    You are so sweet! We checked, though, and there aren’t any direct flights from there that take dogs.. 🙁 Thank you for the offer though!! You are a gem!
