The Eagle Has Landed… In Texas
October 25, 2011 Leave a comment
After an adventure that resembled something close to Chevy Chase’s Vacation, although no Christie Brinkley tailing us in a Ferrari, we finally made it to Austin. Baby Jack did pretty good save for a few end-of-day meltdowns. We made it manageable for him by capping our daily mileage to 425 miles over 4 driving days. Now we have to hang out until Saturday when the movers arrive to relieve us of Inflatable Mattress Back Syndrome. Finally, I’m looking forward to settling in to my new role as President of Blacklocus next week!
A sad note, unfortunately we lost our beloved Shetland Sheepdog Jackson during our stopover in Scottsdale. His health had seen a rapid decline over the past month and he got to the point where he couldn’t keep any food down, so we had to say goodbye and send him on his way to the Rainbow Bridge while we were in Scottsdale. Jackson was a faithful companion for Renee over the past 10 years, he will be missed.
