I'm home.

It took forever.

Prolly because, in addition to the extra "necessary" stops, I:
*got the scoop from Novia about the events leading up to The Bugg's Call.
*hung out with ShortOne for an hour and half...solving the world's problems.
*played catch-up with Hellion....I had to get the scoop on HER vacation, after all!
*chatted with MissErin while we were both burning highway miles. was worth it!!

Freddy slept most of the way...waking up when we stopped, and quickly returning to his comfy comforter when it was time to go again.

Right now, he's wedged under my leg...snoozing like crazy. I think Charlie Brown said it best:
"Happiness is a warm puppy."
