This morning when we left the motel Mom and Julie decided to take a leisurely trip home. Mom told her GPS to go home, BUT she said to avoid all interstates and toll roads!! Instead of 5 hours it said it was going to take SEVEN hours!!!
It turned out to be a pretty nice trip! We went thru the Catskills, especially pretty with all the colored Fall foliage. We drove around a HUGE reservoir. The sign said the water was for New York City!!! I can't imagine that!!!
Finally, after about four hours of back roads and Fall colors, Mom was beginning to get some serious eye strain and both she and Julia were dying for either a McDonalds or a Dunkin Donuts or something like that so Mom changed the GPS back to normal. It was a good thing cuz we were almost to Albany and that is a bad part of the trip, even ON the highway!!!
Once we got back into Vermont and the Green Mountains, Mom and Julie were joking about driving all the way to Pennsylvania to see foliage that is right in our back yard!!! They decided it was all relative!
I don't think it's any relative of MINE!!!
Finally, we got home and Mom went over to the kennel and brought Quincy and Crystal home. Me and Barney had been enjoying the peace and quiet!!
All in all we had a GREAT TRIP. Mom said it was very relaxing which is the point of a vacation, I guess.
The motel was really quiet and they went to bed early and slept late and relaxed lots. Except for the fleas, it was perfect, and with the Advantix, there ain't no fleas on me!!!
And, when Mom told the motel people about the fleas they gave her back the extra pet charge, which was very nice of them! Mom said they didn't act too surprised, and said we should have told them right away. Mom said we were all settled in and fleas don't bite either her or Julie!!! Mom thinks they were in the hallway anyway, NOT in our room.
