My cousin Millie is homesick. I have to admit, when I heard that mom, dad and the boy were watching Doctor Doolittle, (the real one) and eating popcorn, I was really homesick.

I miss sleeping against mom's hip under the blankets, staying nice and warm. I miss lying in mom's lap while she types out my dictation. I miss lying in her lap on the sofa and recliner. And I even miss dad and the boy.

I know Lucky misses the boy. She sleeps with him every night you know, and she hasn't for over a week. Oh, she loves Luxor, but the boy is, well, her boy. She keeps him safe, she protects him from bad dreams and she loves him. And boy does he love her.

So, after we have finished visiting Kimo, Sabi, DK & the Fluffies, Tara, DaisyMae Maus and then brought our gang to wish Miss Peach well, and encourage her to eat more, I think we will head home. We are going to be very good at Miss Peach's. No wild parties or thundering herds of elephants. Just calm, quiet visits, maybe two at a time.

We have had sooooo much fun on this road trip. Miles took the bus for a spin again, around the racetrack a couple dozen times. Daisy, Lucky, Luxor and I watched from the infield. We weren't the only ones who decided to abstain from the pleasure of his race car driving. It was so much fun to watch him have so much fun. Though watching him go round and round made me dizzy. Monty tried to serenade Millie again, with the Kareoke machine. Lucky for us Sammy found the ear plugs and we just put them in and smiled big dog and cat smiles. Happy sap never noticed! hee hee.

It's getting late and I am getting tired. Thinking about popcorn, yum. And mom. And sleeping with mom. and being warm against mom's hip.... and the fact that it is pouring rain in New Hampster and cold and windy and nasty and I think Southern California is GREAT!

Let's get visiting! Broccoli anyone?

As much fun as Lucky & I (and the rest) have been having, I want the best for sweet Lucky and understand that her heart first belonged to the boy. He is probably missing her, too!

Then there are my beans. While I've been away, they've been up to no good. Someone has to keep them in line!

Daisy said...

This road trip has been soooo much fun, but I think it is time to head home now, too. Especially if Doctor Dolittle is on! Thanks for a wild ride.

We've been wondering how all you cats and dogs are paying for the double bus rental, gasoline, hot air balloon rides, meals on the town, etc.

Have your servants checked their credit cards for unusual activity lately? Because that's how we would pay for it if we could find where Jan hides her credit card.

I'm sorry to hear that you and Lucky are feeling a little homesick, Roxy. I have been having a great time on this road trip, seeing many places in the U.S., and meeting a bunch of my friends. :)

The road trip has been a lot of fun, but a week of being away from home is just about long enough. Are you going to drive back, or is everyone just going to teleport home?
