Naughty or Nice?

Today was Annie's trip to the groomer.  She hates that, but she knows Santa is coming very shortly and she wants to look pretty.   Annie doesn't have to worry about being "Naughty or Nice" because she is always nice.  She is a very good dog.  Except for the fact that she chewed up our Scrabble tiles when she was a puppy, she's never given us a bit of grief.  Here she is this morning, getting ready to go in to our local Petco Store.  She was shaking quite a bit.

We picked her up 4 hours later.  She was brought out to us by Debb, her personal groomer.  Debb is very nice and patient with Annie regarding her fears of going for a grooming.  Annie was clean and fresh and looked happy to see us.

We stopped by our daughter's house to pick up our mail and I took a picture of their Christmas tree.  It won't be long now, and we'll get to open those presents.

A few years ago, I made all of us some stockings.  We hung them "with care" next to the fireplace. 

We will be leaving our Tumwater location early on Saturday.  Weather reports look good for our trip south.  We are ready to get some "road time" again.  I'll miss our kids while we are gone, but truthfully, I don't think they'll miss us very much.  They have busy lives and we don't see a lot of them while we are here.   So, these RV trips we take off on during this Full Time Journey are always something Bruce and I anticipate with happiness.  We'll be coming back to reconnect with the family by the first of March.  Then we'll leave again!

I'll be posting from the road (maybe daily) but until Saturday, that's it for now.  We wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and hope that Santa will be good to you even if you have been Naughty!

Bye for now,
Margie, Bruce and Annie

Until next long for now!

Hello Margie... That little Annie is just so adorable... She reminds me so much of our very missed Nicki... But now we have a little Bichon whom we love too... Have a very Merry Christmas and I sure hope we get the opportunity to meet one day.

Maybe you'll get a chance to see more of your family in March before you head out again. Enjoy your Christmas with them all, and drive safely!
