Isn’t that picture a beaut? This is where I am this weekend, in Temecula, California, reunioning and vacationing with Leek, Lettuce, Andouille and Dandelion. They’re my people- the ones that I don’t see for 18 months and fall back into a rhythm with 0.006 seconds after we reunite at the airport.
We’ve had mostly smooth sailing, save for a few close calls, most notably when Andouille exited our moving car, that he was driving, after freaking out about parallel parking. Thankfully, my catlike reflexes got me into the driver’s seat with my foot on the break to avoid an imminent car crash. It was funny/scary.
The news was filled with sad things this week, but then the internet provides uplifting things to make us all feel better and laugh away our tears. Here’s a glimpse.
