    Travel day home and first plane delay. I will now miss my flight connection in Seattle. I have been rebooked on a later flight but with the snowstorm in Seattle, who knows what will happen. Maybe the WeatherCat knows

    Safe travels Hobbit.

    Loved the article about the Avalanche rescue dogs!

    I smell dinner. I had better go see what the Mr. is doing with the Air Fryer. I remember the first time I saw one. It was at LouLou’s Mom’s place. It sure took me a long time to buy one.
