Best Laid Plans

Well, Susan and Gregg are off, only things didn't go exactly as planned.  The plan was to fly out tomorrow (Tuesday) morning with Jazzy while Susan's son drove the 26' Penske rental truck with all their belongings and towed their car.  On Friday they packed the truck with the help of several hired moving-packer-type guys. Unfortunately, not everything fit in the truck, so after some deliberating and discussion of the merits of several alternative plans (Gregg's idea of throwing everything else away didn't go over too well.), they decided to rent a U-Haul truck, cancel their airline tickets, and drive with Jazzy, following the big truck. On Saturday, they got the U-Haul, got it packed and were ready to roll by late afternoon. I could mention how most of Susan's clothes were accidentally packed somewhere in the big truck, leaving her with little to wear, but that's another story. 

They did get off on Saturday and made it as far as Wilkes Barre, PA.  Last night, after driving through a horrendous rain storm, they made their second destination, and tonight they are hoping to stay in Tulsa, OK.  As long as Jazzy has enough happy pills, she has been an excellent rider and has surprised everyone.

Kelly has been practicing longer distances with Sharon and Pat and has been fine.  Yesterday she went to Petco and did well despite shaking like a leaf and insisting on being carried through the store.  Today, after saying hello to a bear and 2 cubs from the back deck, she rode for an hour or so while we ran errands. I asked her if she missed Jazzy and she said, "Jazzy who?"  Even though there's no one here to take her toys or push her out of a chair, I know they'll be happy to see each other.  We leave on Saturday bright and early.  Don't forget, I'll be doing all my posting from an I-Pad on the road, and I don't have the capability of sending out mass e-mails, so bookmark the blog and just check it every day beginning Saturday.

Getting Ready

We love to just hang out, but right now we don't have any furniture left to hang out on. We're spending the day at Sharon and Pat's house while all these strange men move our things into a big truck.  A few more days and Jazzy gets to go on an airplane for the first time while I get ready for my big road trip.  Right now Pat's practicing posting to the blog 

from the I-pad so she can send you pictures of our trip. I'm sure to be photogenic.          Kelly

Kelly is getting excited about her trip to Arizona! Jazzy (who's not so excited) will be flying with Susan and Gregg, and Kelly (she of the long legs) will be driving with Sharon and Pat.  

Sharon and Pat will continue to post photos of Kelly's trip west from August 1 until she is safely delivered to her new home. Unfortunately, since they will be posting from an I-pad, they will not be able to send emails telling you that there's a new post.  If you would like to see her progress, tune in each day to the blog at:

After Kelly makes it to AZ, Sharon and Pat will be continuing on to the National Parks in Utah and Colorado.  We will be posting some photos to our blog if anyone is interested in seeing our travels.  I know it won't be as interesting because there will be no dogs in the photos, but you can follow us at:
