A Wrap

The family fun part of this trip has been SO wonderful.


I rented a house in Truckee and Perfect Sister came — and so did my dad!


We played cards, cooked in a real kitchen (that was novel!), and went for a hike…

My dad headed out yesterday afternoon but Perfect Sister stayed. We went over to visit Jennifer Z. yesterday. Sparkle was enthralled with Rohloff, Jennifer’s puppy.

Rohloff is a Karsten puppy and he is not only beautiful but wow — what a temperament. I want a puppy as sweet and pretty as he is — and given that Claire was bred to Karsten, my wish could come true.

Later today we start the long trek back — hoping and wishing and praying this worked but grateful for these few days with family, and appreciative of Jennifer Z. for her part in all this adventure.

Lucky Socks all around.
