So, it’s time for a few updates. Hang on. Here we go.
Oh, and here’s the funny part.
The magic is gone.
She saved my life. She’s wonderful!
She’s in Tennessee. PTL! So, my friends Sam and Maria arrived at 4:30am to get us (3 girls, 12 bags, 1 AinW, and one, large dog) on Saturday, April 3. They got us to the airport, we parked, and Sam and the nice, curbside guy loaded the dog onto a rolling cart. We got to the ticket counter, and Richard, the WONDERFUL ticket agent, processed us right through.
No, he did not measure my $117 kennel.
No, he did not check my $107 veterinary paperwork.
No, he did not weigh the dog I’d had on a diet for weeks.
No, he didn’t get any closer than 10 feet away from her.
But the TSA man did.
Get near her.
Got one look inside her kennel, look at me wide-eyed, and asked me to take her out. He was a very large, very muscular man, and, I’m not sure, but I think he was scared of her.
I took her out, he looked in the kennel, and that was that.
Seriously? That’s it?
We got on the plane, and she got to Tennessee without a hitch.
And, girl, is she loving being a country dog. I swear sometimes I think homegirl’s smiling. She’s running free, riding in the back of the truck and generally annoying the wildlife. Day one? She treed my mother-in-law’s cat. Absolutely hilarious!
In short? Crisis averted. Resume normal activity.
3. My Favorite Sister Act Character
NG2 loves Sister Act. Since she was such a gem at the party (above), we watched it with her this weekend. Here’s my favorite character:
Come on, the scene in the biker bar where she plays the jukebox and is dancing? That’s about the funniest thing I’ve seen this week.
I thought you should know.
AinW over and out.
