    Hmmmmm . . . no water on the floor or nose prints on the window glass? I don’t think we’d be able to stay at that particular hotel with our dog if the rules are that strict! She’s pretty dainty — a real “girlie girl” really — but she still slobbers just a little bit when she drinks out of her water dish [although certainly nothing that can’t be wiped up in about 2 seconds]. And nose prints on the glass? What dog doesn’t do that when there’s so much to look at on the other side of where they are right now and they can’t experience what’s going on for themselves?!? As far as everything else goes? Not a problem because she doesn’t do any of those other things anyhow but still…. Meanwhile, where’s the rule that dogs also can’t pee or poop on the floor either? That should definitely be listed on the hotel’s “no-no” etiquette list!!!!!

    Given that we’ve loved, spoiled and treated our 12-year-old dog like a human child since day #1, I’m sure she doesn’t know that she’s really a dog either!!!!! ;-)

    We never go on vacation without our dog, either. She’s just as much a part of our family as the rest of us are and we wouldn’t dream of going somewhere and leaving her behind . . . we’d miss her too much and she’d miss us too much. Naturally, that can limit us greatly as to where we can go sometimes but that’s okay; we don’t mind. Just so long as she can be with us, we don’t care. We still manage to have a really good time anyhow!!!!! ;-)


    Hi, rgcviper!


    Hi, lightenup! So great to hear from you this soon, Soul Sister! I assumed with everything needing to be done in order to set up house in a new country, that we wouldn’t hear from you for a while so what a happy, pleasant surprise to “see” you here today!!! Sorry to hear you’re losing new friends there so quickly but hopefully they can teach you as much as possible about your new “homeland” before they head back to England. Please come back as often as you can!!!!! :-)


    Hello and Happy Tuesday, fellow “Cathy” fans. Getting here pretty late tonight. Hope everyone had a really nice day today.

    I desperately want to go camping this summer.
    Preferably in a hotel.
    With a pool.
    And a spa.


    But only if my dog can come with me . . .
    Oh, and my husband, too . . . if he wants!!!!! ;-)

    I love the “Jurassic Park” movies! Can’t wait for the 4th one to come out. It’s been 13 long years since the last one was released.

    We use to get calls from “Windows Technical Support” once or twice a week, which went on for months after they got a hold of our number and discovered two people here that work out of a home office. Nothing we could say or do, no amount of begging or even screaming, would discourage them from calling or taking us off their [call] list. They were absolutely relentless. We’ve been on the state and federal “Do Not Call” lists for years but that doesn’t mean anything to those hucksters from India. Thankfully those ridiculous scam calls stopped once we took out our land line a couple of months ago and went strictly to cellphone use only. Oh, the blissful quiet we’ve been experiencing from those people ever since then has been absolutely wonderful!!! Unfortunately, I’m sure it’s just a matter of time until they find those phone numbers and start calling us again on them, too.

    While I loved Hawaii when I went there on my honeymoon 25 years ago, I’ve never been to Rome so I say, grab the 4 seats for $203.00 before it’s too late and the rates go back up again!!!!!
