This is Deputy Digby Pancake. And this is the last time I will be writing the dog blog for the next year from this Florida place. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? Monday starts our Adventure Of A Lifetime…and we are pretty much not ready at all! Bahaha! Still got a lot of packing. A lot of goodbyes. A lot of pancake eating to gain strength. I am tired just watching the persons do all this work. So while they are packing the RV, let me share with you my reflections on what I will miss.
First of all, Sheriff Brickle and I are going to miss pawtrolling the waterways and canals here in Hudson, Florida. We have had some of the best times of our life outside in the sunshiney. Did we do anything exciting? No. But special. Because the time we have had with the dolphins, the manatees, the fish and the crazy beach persons here has been priceless. Kind of like good pancakes and good syrup combined.
Next, I am going to miss our big house in Lutz, Florida. We had it filled with a lot of stuff. But we sold the house…we sold the stuff…and found treasures unfold in the simple way of life.
I will miss the orange grove and the gopher turtles and Gandma and Gandpa. Wow, do I miss Granny Person who is no longer here. And Cuddles.
And Leroy (not Brown). I won’t miss his barking though.
Isn’t it funny how everyday life is what memories are truly made of? How I miss those visits with family. And the peanuts Granny Person gave us. And stealing fried chicken off her counter. I don’t need the lecture, I totally know pancakes are better for you!
I think most of all, I am going to miss this Florida place because of the people we leave behind. But Girl Person says that in a year after our adventure, we will see where the roads lead us. So until then, I am going to say…as we pull into our beach trailer driveway for the last time…thank you Florida. Thank you to this Florida place for the memories.
