I almost ended up spending last night in Seattle, as the Spokane airport was experiencing both fog AND snow. By the grace of God, I got back to the old hometown, and there was Tom, my friend and usual driver, waiting with a smile and an SUV. (And some muscle to lift the bags I brought back home from Vegas. Let’s just say I did a little shopping.
Sadie and Bernice threw the usual welcome home party, and they’ve been sticking to my heels ever since I came through the door. The cats haven’t decided whether or not to forgive me for being away so long. I haven’t been to the barn yet, but I understand the horses are having a Snow Day and staying inside, where it’s snug.
While I was away, my wonderful crew, Mary Ann, Larry the Canadian Wrangler, and Jenni decorated the house for Christmas! It was pure joy to come home to a tree shining with lights and ornaments, and there were other touches, too.
Since it’s Saturday, I won’t keep you long. Just wanted to make sure you knew I got home all right, after more than a week of fun at the Big Rodeo.
