Re: Checking in...


I too agree..... couldn't be helped. I am glad that you are safe. Be careful and have a good trip.... try to stop to smell the roses along the way.... or take a few pictures.

Jim, I so sorry about Squinty.  I would echo the advice given by everyone
else.  You did what you could for her.  Try not to beat yourself up about
it.  Have a good trip.  I'm sure she will be safe.

First, the bad news. I don't have Squinty. She slipped her harness somehow, got really spooked, ran off into the night. I tried several different ideas to coax her out of the dark so I could grab her but none worked. So I left
her. I have now e-mailed several friends to please look for her hanging
around the house and if they can catch her to please take her to a nearby
shelter--there's one about five blocks from the house. Needless to say, I
feel guilt, remorse, and very sad.
For progress, I am now in the proximate east-west center of Texas, the
small
town of Sonora, at a Days Inn the provides free wireless internet
connections in its rooms. So far I've covered about 1,600 miles--not quite
half the trek.

Wildflowers are in bloom in the Texas hill country. I wish I was
comfortable
with taking more time here to get some photos. But I'm not.

More later.

"... [when] families are struggling to keep up with rising costs  ordinary Americans are paying a price for this [Iraq] war. When you're spending over
$50 to fill up your car because the price of oil is four times what it was
before Iraq, you're paying a price for this war. When Iraq is costing each
household about $100 a month, you're paying a price for this war. When a
National Guard unit is over in Iraq and can't help out during a hurricane in Louisiana or with floods here in West Virginia, our communities are paying a
price for this war. "
