First, I would just like to say that we are so sorry to hear about friend Scooby. It was so sudden and shocking that we are particularly upset for his family. We know, of course, that Scooby is in a much better place. Still, he was an early friend and he will be much missed.
I am quite pleased that Ping is coming by to help me when the Pet Sitter will be here. I am certain she will not be able to tell the difference between me and Ping as I do not usually let her see me (but she peeks at the blog, so I hope she does not read this and know that Ping is a handsome red tabby where I am brown). Mama will only be gone a couple of days. They leave Friday and come back on Sunday.
They are hopefully going to see tulips in Skagit Valley. Mama is a little worried that the tulips are expected late so they may only see daffodils. I do not know why there would be daffodils at a tulip festival, but it has been rainy and icky so the tulips might be late. I think there should be a fine if you are expected some place and then are late, don’t you? Anyway, we will see. It is supposed to rain on Friday and be partly cloudy on Saturday. But who knows when it actually gets there. I hope it only rains when she is outside because she left me at home alone. By myself. With Ichiro, which is sort of worse than being by myself.
