A Mixed Bag

Hello. It’s ME!!!


No, there weren’t any emergencies today. Just a bit of exploration of the expansive village known to the locals as “Chelan”, a prior home to a tribe of the Wenatchi dialect of the Salish Indians (who, anecdotally, called the lake “deep water” or “tsillan” … I’ll take Salish Indians for $400 Alex).

But I digress.

I’ve been told that this is the “Summer of Simple Hacks”.


But the reality is Dad had to stop at Wal-Mart to purchase a $9 jacket to replace the one he forgot to bring with us. No more purple tie-dyed sweatshirt to appall the locals.

After our visit to Wal-Mart, it was on to a local drive-in, where they were serving hot dogs!


Following our warm greeting, the doxie showed me her nine-year-old teeth, and the embrace ended shortly thereafter. You always have to know when you have overstayed your welcome.

Mom procured products at a local mercantile.


After walking every street downtown, I nixed a potential sip of water.


I waited for Mom to return.


As always Mom returned … we went back to the campground for dinner … tenderloin tips, caesar salad, and some freshly caught trout courtesy of fellow campers.


Then, I waited for fraternization to end, so that I could go to sleep.


Today, we head East … potentially to Idaho, which would be my seventh state while working just my eighth month of life.

I hate to cut our visit short, but the engines are fired, and we’re on our way!!

  1. Dash, it was so much fun to meet you in person this week. You are adorable and very well behaved for a young pup. Safe travel wishes to you and your Mom and Dad. I will be anxiously waiting for your future postings. You are a natural author, keep it up.
