In Today’s News…

I slept an (almost) uninterrupted twelve hours on Saturday night. Only my cats and my bladder kept me from reaching a state of perfection, but perfect people are so boring.

Studly Doright and I arrived home from our Thanksgiving/birthday celebration late yesterday evening. We’d flown from Amarillo to Orlando, and should have been safely back at Doright Manor around 5 p.m., but staggering holiday traffic and the resulting accidents on I-75 convinced us to travel backroads.

We stopped at a German bakery/delicatessen in Yalaha, Florida, for lunch and then meandered along two lane roads for much of the afternoon. After a couple of hours of aimless driving we declared ourselves lost, so we found a Walmart and purchased a gps.

The cats, Scout and Patches, welcomed us home around eight p.m. with meows and kisses. After quick showers we all snuggled into our bed and went immediately to sleep. There really is no place like home.

  1. I learned two things from this post: (1) the German bakery, which I’ve Googled for future reference. It’s right near Leesburg, and that was a stop we made a couple of years ago on the central part of the Florida Antiques Trail. We liked that little town a lot, so I’m making a note about the bakery now.

    Also, (2) I’ve been fighting my wife about letting the kittens into our bed. I am convinced I’ll never get a good night’s sleep if I agree to it! – Marty

    1. Studly fought me for years on the cats in bed issue. When we moved to Tallahassee the best place for their litter boxes was in our master bath, so we had to leave to door to our bedroom open. Now he calls the cats in to sleep with us and Scout, our oldest cat always starts out snuggled on his side of the bed.

      The bakery was super busy because a tour bus had stopped there for lunch as well. I’d like to visit again sometime when we can sit and enjoy the live music—it was a bit cool on Saturday. There’s another establishment next to the bakery that looked intriguing, but we didn’t go there. I believe they had a brewery that needs to be explored at some point.
