With Bells On
This is how Sarah greeted friends and customers today at the bookstore.
It was nice to see you tonight, and to come home and find a message from Kathleen, who is fine. I hope you made it home OK in the blizzrd.
I know you made it home and have two whole days to play with Sarah and read. That is a lovely portrait of a very happy dog.
M-22 was freshly plowed and no problem at all. Our driveway was another story. I wish I had a video of our blind flight through the drifts and white-outs, a very exciting homecoming, safely accomplished thanks to David's brilliant driving, which really did verge on genius.
What with waffles, radio, laundry, bill-paying and general putzing around, I have not opened the book I hope to get back into today. Also want to post a long excerpt on the blog, as it speaks to the choir concert I missed for the first time in years.
Like a shy girl.
Nikki, our old dog, was shy. Sarah, pas du tout! She was, however, slightly confused and uncertain when the jingling necklace was slipped over her head. The bells were loud, and that kept her quiet--for a little while. Later she recovered all her usual energy and enthusiasm, even wearing the bells. Sarah is irrepressible!
I spoke to Kathleen last night until her cell phone gave out. Her tour is over in March, but she's trying to get the Peace Corps to take her for another 2 years. She would come home for a short time and then get reassigned to another place. The problem would be her sprained knee that is healing slowly.
We have not been in touch with Kathleen since she's been in Thailand, unlike her time in El Salvador, when we e-mailed constantly. If she re-ups with the Peace Corps, would she definitely be posted to a new country? Please give her our greetings and holiday wishes. She is a very adventurous, giving person.
