Pooches, it was off to the gym again this morning for my manservant at an early hour. His LAST class in his academic pursuit was today and Starlight and I are hoping that will bring a wee bit of normalcy to our Thursday excursions which have been disrupted since January.
His return from his walk/run and velocipede ride was marked by a flurry of activity in preparation for his last class. It seems that the class had decided to celebrate by holding a luncheon at a nearby eating establishment which resulted in his return to our den far later than usual for a Thursday. Starlight and I were not pleased when he announced that he had to work on his weekend academic responsibility and began pouring over lesson plans and the like.
Finally, in late afternoon, my manservant announced that a visit out on the patio sitting under the pergola might be a nice substitute for today’s excursion. We grudgingly went out with him and enjoyed a few snacks. His encouragement to go out to his Spigelia for a photo-op was boycotted.
This weekend is looking like a bust on excursions, pooches. Rats!
