Wish we were there today!  We will be there tomorrow.  I had planned on driving up tonight but this MONTH has just run me into the ground.  Rich decided to go with me so we're making a day trip with 2 drivers and 2 greyhounds!  See you all tomorrow!!!

Enjoy yourselves everyone! I hope a tripawd kitty can make it to give y'all (isn't that what they say in the south?) a cuddle.

May you have Sally's vultures circling overhead...

You were each there in our hearts and definitely came up in our conversations! 🙂

Hahaha! The secret is out. Yes, we made it and are SO glad we decided to make the drive! There was no greater reward than to see the look on Sally's face when we showed up last night at her lovely homestead. It was simply unforgettable!

We are exhausted ourselves, and if you can believe it, Wyatt Ray is crashed out on the floor. Little does he know we have the pleasure of doing it all again tomorrow! We promise to post photos soon. You guys won't believe the fun we are having. We wish you all could be here at the most epic Tripawds party EVER!

Still working on getting home. I was granted the privilege of spending the night in a hotel near the Atlanta airport last night due to that huge storm in Atlanta.  At the gate now and the flight is so far on time. Paula,  did you pass your airline curse to me? 

I will post pictures soon. Using the phone to do so seems complicated. 

Best. Weekend. Ever.

Still trying to connect with Teri by cell phone. So maybe she's sound asleep at home and has her phone cut off.....or else she's still up in the air!!''Ugh!!

And Jim and Rene, you have safe travels and do not do anything but get back to Colorado safely! You have all the time in the world to post pictures!

For you three to surprise us ALL is like an eternity of unwrapping gifts Christmas mornings over and over and over in our hearts forever!

The Brit is waiting with the G&Ts so just a quick word.: I will be crying so hard (again) tomorrow because I am leaving people behind that not only welcomed me like no others but have become close friends and understand like no others ever will. My friends: it was an honor, a great pleasure, an emotional rollercoaster and the best time ever. Hats off to each and every single one of you, you are amazing. 

I will post Fotos when I get back to my laptop. 

Love you

As I emailed Elizabeth and told Linda, I am sooo full of love and light now!!!:-) I'm just overflowing with joy and happiness! I have had a continuous smile in my face and in my heart! Absolutely floating on the memories of our magic carpet ride! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Yet, I also feel empty and lonely!! Not "alone lonely", not at all! More like a "longing" for ALL humanity to embrace the kindness and grace that each of you embody in your own special way.. An "emptiness" in the sense that, while filled with treasured memories that will stay with me forever, there's always room for more bliss!!

We were all guided to be together and we are all better for it. It didn't matter if our moments together were brief, or a bit longer, they helped to make up a lifetime of joy and connection for each of us. Just as we have with everyone in the site.

Gonna go eat some ice cream now and share with Frankie and Merry Myrtle 🙂

With love always

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
