On Vacation

The Sheck is taking a much needed week off to drive down to DC and check out some sights, see some friends, and relax. Jon and I are looking forward to some quality time together, especially the car ride. We tend to fly places most of the time since Vermont is such a haul to most places. But this time we are going out onto the open road, at least until traffic catches us in its inevitable web. But for those moments, I checked out James Herriot's "Dog Stories" to read aloud while we sit bumper to bumper somewhere between New York-Philly-DC. Since our pup will be staying with Jon's parents, I thought some dog stories by such a witty, clever writer might make us smile and think of being outside with Rigi rather than focus on road rage.

Pictures and tales to come.
