Wow, what an exciting weekend. We drove up to mom's and ran in the Turkey Trot. It was my first 5K. I walked/ran and finished in 35.5. Glenn had me beat by far. After running we had one of mom's scrumptious meals. The next day we drove to Canada and visited with my grandfather, Frank.
All that would have been enough for one weekend, but we were anxious to get home and adopt our new family member. We only live one block from NYC's ASPCA, so that was our first stop. We met dozens of cute kitties, but decided on a beautiful one-year old calico. She's been exploring the apartment since she's gotten home. She's shaking a bit, but purring very loudly. She's found (and used) her scratching post, food and litter box. We're anxiously awaiting her discovering our laps.
