Four Ladies Across The Pond

A Dream Stop on a Dream Trip

It all began with a conversation between my sister Ellen and my counsin Carol Jean, a devoted Anglophile. Ellen was trying to convince her that if she wanted to visit England, all she would need is a plan and so a plan was hatched.  My other sister Heide and I signed on for the trip – hence, Four Ladies Across The Pond.  A budget was determined along with a timeline.  Months rolled by, money was saved, itineraries debated, airline tickets were purchased, a car rented, event tickets were requested and arrived in the mail, our bags were packed and repacked and soon the departure date that was circled in red ink on all of our calendars arrived!  In August we boarded a plane headed for London to take the trip we had initially begun planning well over a year ago.

How did the trip go? You can read all about our adventures at:

We hope our great adventure encourages you to realize that the trip you have been dreaming of can become reality. All it takes is a plan……

The Adventures of Peanut and Charlie

I enjoy cats. They are cute, small, cuddly, and in my opinion they make good pets. On the other hand Craig thinks cleaning a litter pan, having all of your clothes and furniture always covered in hair, and the incessant meowing from a cat when they get hungry, gets old pretty fast. And honestly I have to agree – my last cat I had in vet school drove me crazy (slept on my face for a year straight, while I got very little sleep), but memories of my first perfect cat, Sophie, leaves me nostalgic for a cat/pet I can cuddle and hold on my lap. The dogs, Indy and Luke, are just a tad bit too big for that!

So to maintain a happy marriage every couple must compromise. The result: We introduce Charlie the dwarf lop and Peanut the lionhead dwarf!!

Why rabbits? They are cute, small, don’t make ANY noise, use a litter pan (which doesn’t get stinky), and love attention once they get used to people. Right now these little guys are still a bit nervous around us, but with treats (fresh parsley!) they are warming up fast. Charlie is a bit older than Peanut and from a different litter, but they are already best friends and spend most of their day chasing each other around the living room (videos soon!).
