So That You Don’t Regret A Thing


This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Are you enjoying your time in this Michigan place so far? We sure are. It is almost as beautiful as I am, which is saying a lot. I was a bit disappointed this morning to tell you the truth on one thing. I thought I was at the ocean. I was all ready for it. I know I am not supposed to drink salt water but I can’t help myself. I like to make Girl Person tell me to stop. So I started biting the water like I usually do and it. Was. Not. Salty. And…it. Was. Arrested. Sorry Michigan, but your arrest came early. Girl Person told me we were at one of the Great Lakes. Well la de dah. You are not salty.

But I thought I would take this opportunity to tell you something today. We know a lot of our fans are worried that we are all too tired. Too wore out. Doing too much. It is true. We ARE doing a lot. And we ARE tired. We are having RV problems this week with jacks not coming down or something. It always seems to be one thing or another as our Granny Person used to say. But we want you to know one thing. We are still having a lot of fun. And we think that you should do. We know that when this trip is over, we will miss it. We will miss the campgrounds, the people, the traveling, the adventure. Sometimes, adventure is hard. But the memories that you make sure are worth it like the time I spend in front of the mirror. We are living our life so that we don’t regret a thing. This is going to be over so fast.  So very fast. Like some people that we thought would be here forever.  Like some people we thought we could hug one more time.  Time flies by, and this trip is too.  Don’t blink. Or it will be over.


We are trying to make the most of every mile this year.  Visiting people that deserve their story to be told, like the Cherryland Humane Society we are going to today in Traverse City, Michigan.  48 states, 48 rescues in one year.  Yes, it seems hard and it is.  Some days we think we just can’t finish.  But then your words inspire us to keep going.  We love taking you all along with us and showing you that EVERY state has something beautiful and unexpected to offer.  Life is like blue bonnets in the spring.  Don’t take today for granted.  Make the most of what your life, and the people in it have to share with you today.  And thank you for being with us on this trip, because you know good and well if you weren’t that you.  Are.  Arrested.
