Well we are offically home. We made it back to Texas around 10:00p.m. and were so very tired. We came up to the house and Nancy, my former Nanny, and now keeper of our home. was waiting to meet us. She was crying, wiping her eyes with her apron and went running with her arms outstretched for ..........MERRY! She LOVES Merry.
I am not even sure she knew I had come home!! She grabbed my wife hugging her and crying and Merry was crying.. my Dog I just stood back out of the way watching it all. I am always so happy how much she loves Merry but wondered if she even remembered I was there. So standing there waiting, one eyebrow raised, Nancy finally noticed me and said.. "Oh Hi George.." I thought Oh HI GEORGE? But I didn't say anything.. to HER that is bol. It's ok I'm glad she loves my wife..that is furry special to me that she does and makes me feel good. I think she adopted Merry as her own daughter ....I dont' know.
Well she had some good ol' Texas strong coffee waiting for us and home -made donuts. POTATO DONUTS!!! Omd Nancy makes the best this side of the Rocky Mountains!!!! So nothing left to be done Merry and I had to be sure and eat even though we were zonked from so many hours traveling to get home.
Finally Merry could not hide it and began yawning. Nancy looked at me with her eyebrows raised and SCOLDED ME for letting Merry get so tired!!!! I couldn't believe what I was hearing, so I scooted back my chair and picked up Merry's notorious pink backpack that goes EVERYWHERE WITH HER (you probably could see it in her game Wheel of Furtune at The Doghouse if you looked) and then I winked at Nancy and swept Merry in my arms taking the steps two at a time up to our room. Shoving the door open with my foot I take Merry into the room filled with the scent of lavender and putting her to bed I climbed in also ready to begin our days at home again.
I'm glad to be home, and I know Merry is too. Iceland was, and is, one of the most fascinating places I've ever been. Truly the land of Vikings, Volcanos and Ice. So much history and so truly amazing. I will never, ever forget our 6 weeks there.
Thank you Merry it was one of THE most pawsome birthday gifts you have ever given me (next to meeting Santa Paws Christmas of 2008! OMD!!). When you first said Iceland, I said to myself, ICELAND? I never knew the marvels we would find and the magnificent landscape and beauty of this ancient land. What a birthday gift baby.
Again Merry......THANK YOU, and I love you.xoxoxoxoxo;)
Georgie .. you are SO welcome!!! I had such a blast with you in Iceland. We made so many beautiful memories that we can now look back on and will last us a lifetime.. I love you!!!!!!
And Nancy loves you too baby bol.. I guess she just hasn't realized I ain't no baby in the bucket anymore !!!!!!!
Love your wife Merry xoxoxoxox
