Okay....trying to read between the lines as to why you are asking Alison what days she's flying to DC. Is it possible..P O S S I B L E. that you and Garry are checking out airfare to Washington?? Znd than you could sll drive together from there?? OMD!!! This would be soooooo great!!!
I would even offer up Merry Myrtle and Frankie as "Ollie fill ins" for the week end so you could continue practicing being a "trainer" on them!! And yiu think Ollie was a challenge....HA!! You ain't seen nuttin' yet! 🙂 Made the same offer to Michelle.....the phone went dead and I haven't heard from her since 🙂
Ohhhh Kathi, you and Garry have to come!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

And yes, Alison, some day I will manage to be in California at the right time for the NorCal party. I understand you are flying into DC. What days are you traveling?
Actually... Jasper has not purchased her tickets yet (she's a bad little doggy hosting parties instead of plane ticket shopping). But I think we might actually end up flying right into Richmond directly. It is about the same length of a travel day and then we don't need to rent a car in DC and drive out. But that could all change when I crunch some #s this weekend (rental car and shorter flight vs fly direct to Richmond). But we are definitely traveling Friday 5/26 and returning Monday, 5/29.
We are also bummed to miss the Northern CA party this time as my work's gala is that same night and considering it's part of my job, no way I can see to get out of it!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
I looked at the train, one never knows. it is less money but leaves here Friday noonish and gets there Saturday evening. That's insane. But I will find a way to make this work! I will. I will. I will.
