On The Road Again....Willie Nelson, who knew your song would be my signature song. However, there is another song that may be moving this song into second place - Red Solo Cup. On my way back to Saskatchewan, I stopped in at Chris Jobe's and gave mouth to mouth resuscitation to a couple of bottles of wine - which unfortunately passed on during the wee hours of the morning. We gave a valiant effort in any case. Once again, it was an evening of talking dogs, planning which trials to attend, and discussions of what our long term plans would be - which turned out to be dogs and trials. I do believe I have found a travelling partner to go to Kingston this year to the Canadians - Ontario, look out - hide your wine. A quick sleep was had, in which I just about got smothered by a cat, and realized the buzzing in the head wasn't caused by a hangover but by the motor of said cat. There was a cup of Java and a quick work with Mitch on the rams before I headed back to Saskatchewan. Before the final trek, I went back into Medicine Hat to fix a slow leak on a tire, and picked up my vacuum cleaner that was fixed (now I have no excuse for not doing housework). As well, I prayed to the Automobile Gods - Dora the Explorer had a burp. I was going to stop at a liquor store before I left to ensure my emergency kit was stocked up - blanket, candle and wine - because believe me there would have been some whining from me if Dora's transmission petered out.
I got home with no problems, and said hello to the menagerie that I had left a month ago. Little do they know I would be turning around in a couple of days to go back to Alberta to work one more week. This time I will be taking the dog trailer - loading a few more dogs to take back with me who will be finding new homes along the way. I must remember to take their tags off so they can't be traced back to me.
I will also be bringing a red solo cup - let's have a party!
