I'M BACK..........!!!!!!

Well that was a whirlwind trip........!!!!! Drove to Las Vegas, stayed in a motel 2 blocks from the convention center, & ordered in food as necessary. So I can only assume we were in Las Vegas, never saw the strip & colorful life of the casinos. Has a good time, we had a booth for the Oasis Sanctuary. Most of the booths were for dog or cat interest, although there were a few horse rescues, a sugar baby rescue, & a booth for ferret adoptions & rescue. We had Gulliver the macaw that was rescued from Micronesia this summer with us, & he loves the attention, so was quite a crowd pleaser. Sybil has written a wonderful children's book about his adventures, & Ed the illustrator was also there to sign books. The book is "hot off the press" as they say & it really was a hit with the people.

The first morning I was gone, John had to take Pepper to the vet because he choked on his breakfast. He's choked before, but this time it was a good one. He got to come home once the vet tubed him & got it loose, & had no more problems. Everyone else behaved themselves & in fact John said they even showed up on time every morning, so he didn't have to go find them on Burroland. Believe me, he had enough to do without having to round them up.

I got in late last night, went out this morning to say hello to all my buddies & the only one that even acted excited was Nicky the dog..........!!!! Oh! well, I enjoyed seeing them even if they didn't acknowledge their days had been bleak without my presence.........!!! (G)

Now it's back to work, & getting ready for the Open House, the first week-end in December. We don't have a lot to do to get ready, but there's still things that need to be done.
