No Travel In My Future

Skyler packed and ready to ride

Here we see Mama’s red neck packing ways…which we were going to replicate for a trip to Franklin, NC at the end of the month. Extensive planning had been put in motion and I cannot count the PM’s send back and forth.  Today, after talking to Dr. B, our beloved Vet, Mama pulled the plug. Mind you, we had bought a crate and were already making a pile of things to take.  We had map quested,   we had my food and treats, my travel bowls washed and ready…you get the idea. We had made plans to meet pals at a certain stop on 1-40.  And then, this dog flu thing came up, and Mama said….hmmmmmm.  Then my Aunt Patti Jo brought it all into focus, and Mama said, after talking to B’s….”That’s it….no trip in our future, we will just get together with our pals another way”. Then, in one of her typical moves, she calls our Kennel and asks what plans they have made for their boards, because I am going at the end of May for a few days.  Amber, who knows the Mater pretty well sez…”What do you want for him at his Villa?”  Mama sez, ” Something along this lines of what Michael Jackson would want…his own air filtration system, etc.”  Amber goes quiet, as the Mater babbles on about protective gear, how my food is to be delivered thru a special slot in the wall. Amber agrees that this would be the very best solution, and she will talk to Dr. L, the owner and get back to me.  Amber probably hung up the phone and announced, “You will NEVER guess what Skyler’s Mama  wants ……thank goodness she didn’t request a Chimp too!”

    You could hit I-40 and go a couple of thousand miles and stay with us.

    Very tempting! Mama loves birds too. We live in NC. Where do you nest?
