Dear Columbus, Ohio Can We Be Freinds?

A visit to your city is usually a treat. However during this visit I
feel like you hate me. Why? Let me tell you why-
1-the worst airplane landing ever or shall I say aborted landing,
circling the airport for 30 minutes waiting for the thunderstorm/
tornado to move on. Then the retry of the landing through black
clouds with bolts of lightening flashing all around us. For sure one
of my top 5 scary flying experiences.
2-getting to the hertz counter only to discover I had reserved a car
in Columbus...........Georgia. They of course did not have any cars available
except a Volvo. So instead of $40 a day I am paying $140 - awesome.
And the seat belt does not work.
3-my phone is being a stupid hag so I fully expect to be phoneless by
4-locked my hotel key in my room.
5-the lock on my suitcase some how got set and I don't have key

I am now locking myself in my room, crawling into my super comfy Four
Points bed and watching tv. I am hoping the rest of my time here we
can be better friends!

One Night in San Francisco.....

I spent one quick night in San Francisco 2 weeks ago for meetings with a couple of my customers.

This was the view out of the window where my first meeting was held. Are you kidding me?  How would you get any work done if you got to look at this everyday? 

This was the view outside my hotel window. I think this was the best "room with a view" that I have ever had in San Francisco....looking right out to Union Square.

"Lunch with a view" - The view as I sat and ate my lunch of sour dough bread and a crab cocktail on Fisherman's Warf...Yumm

Gnocchi Night

A few weeks ago I invited a few friends over and had sweet Aunt Glenda and Shauna teach us to make Gnocchi. We also learned to make fresh mozzarella, french bread and everyone brought their favorite Italian inspired food. There was tons of great food.

Thanks to Lindsey for the iphone video.

Doggy School Graduate

Ruby Foo graduated from puppy school last night.  I have discovered being a dog owner is hard work and expensive. 

Cons of Ruby Foo ownership- 

My house is always a mess-dog toys and shredded paper everywhere.

My carpet will need to be replaced enough said about that.

Chewed up leg on my Pottery Barn bed.

Chewed up antique suitcase.

Chewed the embellishments off of 2 pairs of shoes.

Feeling guilt when she is at home alone all day while I am at work.

Tons of money spent-vet bills to rid her of an unmentionable problem she had early on and tests and x-rays to discover she had a teeny tiny trachea which was causing her to choke and vomit whenever she drank water.  Then there is the growing collection of dog collars, treats and toys.

Pros of Ruby Foo ownership 

So far she is super sweet. 

She forces me to get up early in the AM and take her for a long walk and get to work on time.....well maybe not on time.

She is super snugly and sleeps with her head resting on my neck...I love it

Spending the last 8 weeks going to dog school with Jake and his dog Scout.
