Parents traveling and leaving their 9 year old kids behind unsupervised, Comet and Dexter, really have nothing to worry about. Tommy is house- sitting. Plenty of food for man and beast.
It’s a long way to go on a date, but it’s a reunion, of sorts. A Navy reunion. My former boss’s retirement ceremony at the Strategic Air Command (Omaha). And a bunch of folks I haven’t seen in 9 years have come to honor an Admiral.
Maybe I’ll buy some steaks. For the dogs. My son is a vegetarian.
