She is an excellent traveling companion, except for a bit of snoring, and a refusal to swim with her daddy. She never makes a fuss in the car, doesn't demand to be fed, and loves to explore the landscape around the rest areas when we stop. She's also a perfect hotel guest. We had a wonderful dog-sitter the one night she didn't go out with us, and she got along with him famously.
So, A is for "All of Us" — Kay, Dick and Lindy, and quite a few other members of my family: brothers, sisters-in-law, nieces, nieces-in-law, grandniece, nephews, nephew-in-law, and grandnephews (including a 9-month-old I hadn't met before—he's SO cute!) and of course Lindy's dog-cousins, too.

After seeing "the mob" as I fondly call my family, we came home via Kelowna, BC, and my 50-year high school graduation reunion. New grandnephews are fun, but admitting to 50 years post-high-school is a bit like admitting I'm the eldest of my immediate relatives (which I am). However, I was one of the younger members of my small (fewer than 50) graduation class. Funny thing, now almost all of us look the same age! Unfortunately, I think the In Memoriam list of Knox grads has reached 10. Almost all of the remaining grads were at the dinner, and I was very pleased to see everyone.
