All Good Things Must Come to an End
The call came today at 3:15 P.M. Cathy had finished her job in Roanoke and was on her way to pick up Kahlo and take him back to Richmond after his five day vacation at Applejack Lane. He has been a good house guest. He spent so much time out in the yard playing ball, sniffing country smells, rolling in the grass, and catching a lot of rays. He , Velcro, and Murphy entertained themselves by playing hide and go seek. But all good things must come to an end. When I drove up into the driveway, Cathy and her friend James from the USGS had already arrived, and Kahlo was very excited to get into the back seat of the big truck and move it on down the highway. I could tell he had been in this truck before. His backseat window had Kahlo snoodles all over it.
Cathy was happy to see her companion after five days. I had to get a picture of her driving this big truck. Her dad gets a real charge out of seeing her in it. She is so small, and the truck is so big.
Off they go, Kahlo with his head sticking out of the window smelling that great country air until they get on Interstate 81 and 64. Then, the window goes up until they close in on the Fan district in Richmond.
Velcro really enjoyed having Kahlo for a playmate. He seems a little lost already without his city friend.
Maybe he will wait right here staring into the driveway until Kahlo visits sometime in June or July.
We had a great time with Kahlo. Don't wait so long to return to Applejack Lane.
