Fall is a tough one for me but Joy certainly makes it better and that is the way Bailey would have wanted it. After all, it was Bailey who found Joy to begin with. When I walk at Buhl Park with Joy I always think what great friends they would have been, perfect companions for each other. Joy might have been a bit too crazy for senior Bailey, but still I think all in all they would have had fun together.. It’s been lovely there and Joy certainly has proven to be quite the leaf cruncher. She is spirited and whines like a baby as soon as we enter the parking lot! Some kind of slushy snow is expected tomorrow, so I am hoping that we will get to the park and take some pictures and perhaps Joy can catch a few snowflakes on her tongue before we head South to Florida next week.
The ride to Fl is 1100 miles long, but who loves a ride in the car more than Joy? Rest stops, hotel stays, treats all day long and long naps, she says, “what’s not to love?” I always tell her I wish I could lay with her in her crate! She has the best ride of all – well so does Safari. He is the only cat I have ever had that loves his cat cage. He loves to sleep all day anyway, so a long ride is right up his alley as well. We get no sleep because he wants to run around the room all night! It’s awful! I am hanging on to my last days of Fall, my favorite season with leaves of Joy.

Leaves fall and snow birds prepare for their migration South. You will miss the quiet time of Winter, a season for reflection. Safe trip my friends.

I have always loved Buhl Park very much, but I also love the ocean. Being a Pisces, I am a water person and feel most serene by the water, so the beach and time on the boat give me ample time to reflect as well. And of course Ms. Joy LOVES the beach and smelling all the things buried beneath the zillions of kernels of sand. She finds shells and sticks and things that wash up from the sea…yes, the water is good for peacefulness too.
