Charlie walked almost 7 blocks this morning without me prompting him. All summer, I've had to drag him to go two houses! The coolness probably a little to do with it but I think it is mainly because he is on weight control food and has dropped a couple pounds. It's full of fiber so you know what that means but, oh well! At least it is firm!
Going to lay out my clothes today to make 'last cuts' in what I'm taking on the trip. Then, I'll put it in the suitcase. If it's too heavy, out they come. I can't be lifting all this weight this time. My formal dress and jacket weigh a lot. Somebody suggested shipping it ahead to the hotel in Milan. That won't really help because I need to wear it in Vienna and Prague as well.
John McCain...we all know where I stand politically, but he was a true American. All the news about his life is such a reminder of the values we have all lived by, that have beene spoused by our president...until now. Such a sad contrast.
Cool weather to finish mowing this morning.
