September Wrap Up - Travel, Dog Shows, and Cruising

Good morning,

September has been such a busy month!  If you are a regular reader, you know we have enjoyed some road trips and I have recently been sharing some of those images.
We are currently on board Freedom of the Seas where a dear friend gave us these beautiful peach colored roses.  Thank you, Jeff!
For our first two weeks here we have had several friends here cruising with us.  We are having a grand time with them so I have not taken very many pictures yet.  I will be doing that soon, though, and will share them here.
Earlier this month back in Cincinnati we went to a dog show where our daughter, Catherine (pictured in center of image - wearing purple shirt), and friend, Erica (pictured with back to camera, preparing to show her dog in an agility event), had very successful days with their dogs.  All of the dogs did extremely well at the show and brought home more ribbons.  :)  We are so proud of them!

While we are out here at sea we have email 24/7, but we are not able to log into your blogs except for a short period while in a US port once a week and have a connection with enough band width.  That is why we can only comment on your blogs once a week instead of more regularly as we do while we are at home with our 24/7 high speed connection. 

So, September is drawing to a close and the leaves are changing color at home.  We so enjoy keeping up with what you are all doing on your blogs and seeing all the color changes.

All the best,
Lois
