Ah, Barnesville. Upon entering the village, we stopped at a Subway where it seemed Carolyn and David knew everyone. A large bearded man in Car-harts joked with David about some ponies from the other side of town that had run away and adopted his field as their new grazing territory. A woman spoke to Carolyn for a bit and told her I was very pretty. How nice! I wished she was a hot teenage boy. David and I joked that they should tell everyone that they picked me up on the side of the road.
There's a few inches of snow on the ground, and the driveway is slick with ice. The dogs and cats were happy to see us--Jimmy is rotund as ever, Trixie looks like a small bear (I've never seen her with so much fur!), and Spud, although deaf and blind, acted like a puppy. Caught a glimpse of Gussied-Up, and Lito has grown larger still. We ate subs for dinner that we had gotten in Barnesville, and after a lovely shower I sat down to begin this blog! I'm off to work tomorrow morning, and I can't wait! 'm a bit nervous, but I'm sure all the vets will be very nice. It's been a while since I've had to pack a lunch--I think I'll be living off of PB and J for the next two weeks. My metabolism does not do wonders with being away from a refrigerator for extended periods of time.
