I’ll be heading for the airport in a little while–it’s off to L.A. to do my satellite media tour and then spend a glorious week (almost) visiting with my daughter. I’m taking my MacAir laptop along, because it’s so light, but until I can visit the Geniuses at an Apple Store, those weird little symbols will be turning up in the blog. I know, I know–I hate them, too.
Sadie and Bernice and all the other critters will be well taken care of during my absence, as always. Cousin Mary Ann and her husband, the Canadian Wrangler, will be looking after all 10 of them, plus their own.
Travel days are usually hectic, but I’ve decided this one will be easy. I have a brief layover in Seattle, and that’s time enough to have some of the fabulous fried oysters sold in the food court at Sea-Tac. If there’s time after chowing down, I’ll stop by my favorite airport shop, Fireworks. They always have such unique things!
I vowed to pack light, but I ended up with two bags. How does that happen? Because I didn’t get to see Wendy and Jeremy at Christmas, as planned, I’m taking some presents with me. There are others too bulky to pack. Yeesh.
My friend Jake McKenzie, who lives in Northport and helps my beloved Auntie Marian with a lot of handiman type stuff, made me the most beautiful vase you have ever seen, to celebrate the success of “Logan”. It has a wolf on the front, painted with such detail that you can see the fur. What a generous, thoughtful thing to do. You can bet that vase will have a place of honor in my office.
I guess I’d better wrap this up and make sure I’ve packed everything and fed everybody. More from California.
