If I didn't post about it before we left for a camping trip last Wed-Sun...and boy did we ever need it. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. An added surprise was the chance to meet one of my "BlogBuddies"! Chan and I have been commenting on each others blog and emailing each other for a few years now, Hubby and I have often passed by Charlottesville and even been in town to visit Son#2 but never enough time to "get together". Well, it finally happened, she brought along her "furgirls" (as requested) and they were such a hoot! She is EXACTLY as she comes across on her blog, and in her emails...a true sweetheart of a gal!
Even brought gifts for me & Rudy! (Rudy says, "Thank you Auntie Chan"!) The "kids" had a great time playing, so much so that they all "passed out" upon leaving! Rudy found out exactly what a "calm" Bassett Hound is all about...I know when he saw those droopy ears he was thinking "oh, geez--oh, geez...it's gonna hurt!" But he found out that there IS a calm, ladylike Bassett out there, unlike his Aunt Ellie (aka Demon Girl). If you want the see the atypical picture of me with my mouth wide open check out her post of our meeting.
Rudy, of course, had a great time camping...even his buddy Milo came by for a visit.
He pretended to be Rin-Tin-
This was in fact his favorite place to be, we sat sort of on a knoll so he was able to see all the "comings & goings" of everyone, including every pup that came by.
And enjoyed a nice campfire.
He met lots of new friends, many-many Shih Tzu's...Zoe, Roscoe, Reily, Chloe and Bandit. Oh...and though I didn't get a picture of him Tony Romo was camped across from us! He did have a cute little blond with him, but it wasn't Jessica!
Okay...so I'm pullin' your leg but his name was really Tony Romo...he was a 5 month old English Bulldog! Hilarious, he loved coming to visit Rudy and getting me to rub his belly.
I got lots of reading & spinning done but no knitting...yes, you heard me right I didn't knit one single stitch! But I did finish The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks in 2 days, a perfect read for Memorial Day weekend and finished spinning up my ScoutJ fiber from last year. Now I'm trying to decide which of my stash fibers to start spinning next.
Why did it take me so long to finish the spinning...one word--Rudy! When he came to live with us I hadn't pulled out my wheel at all. So I decided to see what his reaction would be before leaving for our trip.
It was so funny, he smelled...watched and stuck his nose in the spokes as it was turning -- thump-thump-thump on the nose!
Okay, I think I've gone on long enough with this post...I'll show pics of Friday of my FO spinning!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
