It's July and many people go away on vacation. I know they are going away to have fun, but I miss them none the less. For instance, my BPP and Aunt Mimi are away. They got to go to Bermuda and play in the waves and run in the sand... I told them they could do that here in NY, but they said the sand is softer there. I will need to run some tests.
My other friend Val is away too. She is going to the beach as well, and then Fly Fishing. She told me that she is not fishing FOR flies, but rather using flies to catch fish. I told her if she needed flies, that there are plenty on the plaza buzzing about. She told me she would wait. Hey, I'm just trying to help.
Then Grandma and Grandpa went away. They went to Vegas. You know the saying; 'What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas'. Well they told me they weren't going on vacation but actually on a business trip. Grandpa loves business trips. Grandma likes vacation. So, I'm sure it will be a bit of both. Also Grandma has tons of sparkly things so I wouldn't be surprised if she is dubbed Queen of the City. Elvis was the King, Grandma could very well be Queen.
I went to mom and asked when we were going on vacation. She told me that she didn't have anything scheduled yet, but that she knew we would have lots of opportunities to do fun things together. Why just the other day we helped with a documentary film a friend of ours was putting together. We both got to say lines and wear cool T-shirts. Mom says we don't have to go away to have fun. It's true. There are plenty of things right here in the city. And I don't make anyone sad by leaving.
I'm happy to be here with mom, but I'm going to pack a little overnight bag just in case something comes up and I need to be spontaneous. A state of ready.
