I'm Back ...

Sunset at Ko Olina (JW Marriott) on Oahu, Hawaii

This was the view from the deck
 on my first night in Hawaii
I left rain and landed in warmville
Just got back late last night
Cats are not too mad at me
Just picked up the dogs from the kennel
Or as we call it, Puppy Camp
They got baths and have on their bandanas
Maddy Jean rolled in the dirt
and has a brown face already
Riley is very very friendly
Jasmine wants pets and slept on my pillow
Meredith Ann did ok
The pet sitter said she was very friendly
Al & Ashton hid most of the time
Now to unpack
More details to come ...

Welcome home. And I'm sure you had a lovely holiday. How could you not?

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
