After the multiple swings through the Houston airport — see the recent post — and being tired of stopping at gas stations and convenience stores to find out where I am and where I am going — and knowing that I plan to drive to the National Specialty in Ohio next year, I began researching Garmins. As is often the case, the best deal (a Nuvi 1350 LMT with lifetime maps) was at Amazon. She arrived today and is undergoing map-loading surgery as we speak type. I have decided to name her Sacajewea — “Jewel” for short. I think it is appropriate to be directed across the southwest by one of the most famous woman guides ever. If I head to the northwest, she is even better versed in the streams, rivers, and mountains there. The surgery will take about 5 hours so I will leave her attached to my laptop (in which I have complete faith) and head off to bed.
Tomorrow afternoon Holmes has a date with Wendy for his show bath and groom. I’ll walk Nola around the show site while the specialties are going on — it’s her very first show and she could use a little exposure. After I bring them both home, Nola will get her bath and that demon Dremel will make her nails pretty. We show at 8:00 on Saturday morning so all the prettifying must happen tomorrow. Saturday there will be only two boys entered, but it is a major in bitches. Jim Reynolds is judging and I’m eager to see what he does with the Chase kids.
I’ll report in. Jewel says no get well cards are required — her surgery is going well.
