Buffy, our grandparents’ dog, was the first mammal to come over to us when we arrived. She was happy to see us. Then Patsy, our grandmother, came over and welcomed us. I was very happy to see them. They have a very nice house. I gave myself a tour.
I spent most of the time with Buffy. Whenever I go down low Buffy looks at me and then licks me. It’s funny. She goes out the doggy door a lot and mostly goes down to the garage so I go inside. If I am not outside then I usually play hide and go seek with my cousins, Blake and Cathryn.
Kim and Michael, my aunt and uncle, came pretty soon with their dog Mufasa. I had cereal for breakfast.
My dad turns 60 this year. To celebrate his longevity my stepmum planned for my siblings and me and our families to gather at their house in Florida. His birthday isn’t until April, but my younger brother, Ken, has enlisted in the US Army and will be reporting to Basic Training later this month.
I love New England, and I’m very happy to be living in Maine. I’ve really enjoyed the camping trips we’ve taken and would love to go again, especially up near Quoddy Head State Park and Acadia. I loved Montreal as well and would like to go back.
There are some other places I would like to see. I’ve always wanted to go to Europe, particularly France, Germany, and Austria. I’m fascinated with the history, architecture, and cuisine. Actually I would love to travel all over the world, just to see and experience the many different countries and diverse cultures.
If I could travel anywhere, where would I go? That is a hard question, because there are many places I would like to travel.
I would especially like to travel to the ocean. I would see all the fish and see how whales live. If any sharks tried to attack, I would swim as fast as the speed of light to get away. It would be neat to be able to communicate with the fish. I would want to speak to the sea animals and play with them.
Exploring the ocean would be fun and exciting because I never studied the water carefully to get a good look at the things in the water.
My youngest brother, Michael, and Kim, his super awesome girlfriend, know how to travel. They spend months working on a train in Alaska or teaching English in China. They travel by bus and airplane and motorbike. Their adventures are legendary. You can read about them at Kim’s blog. I’d love to travel with them. But not to Asia. I’d rather to go Europe.
When I was in the US Air Force I got to travel to Korea, Saudi Arabia, England, Italy, Germany and France. I completely fell in love with France during the month I stayed there. I was in Vitrolles, a small town in the south of France near the Mediterranean Sea. It was amazing! The food was rich and the women beautiful. I’d like to go back. In fact, I’d move there if I could.
