Summary of weekend

Well, we've had Smokey for a week and he is getting accustomed to us. He has lots of pee-pee accidents but we are working on that. I swear he is part cat! He pounces and bats things around with his paws. He has so much energy. I try to walk him every morning, a little over a mile. At first he was right under my feet and I had to work not to step on him. Now he adventures out a tiny bit more following Spotcher. She still snarls at him a bit but it's getting a little better.
Gary is at Caymen Islands scuba diving for 4 days with friends. They have a time share and invited him since the dive buddy that was going had a change of plans. So he got to go for the cost of airline, which we used airline mileage so not too much plus dive costs. Hope he's having fun.
I took this photo of Jeremy and Smokey on one of our walks because I needed a photo of him for his 20 year old page for his birthday album. He goes off to SFA in January and I'm getting a bit sentimental. And we found a few trees with pretty fall colors. I love the colors! Oh and this is what Timothy did to the car last Monday night. Rainy, slippery roads and inexperience just don't mix sometimes. He wasn't hurt but the car was hurt bad! They are going to try and put humpty dumpty back together again. I ran 5 1/2 miles yesterday - very slow couple minutes over 1 hour but at least I got out there and did it!

Wow, you are so calm about the car! My daughter's boy friend smashed the family car when he hit black ice and took out the power for the whole town. Boys :-)
