C and her friend pose form me! Look at the size of that tree trunk! There are also MANY unique trees here. Lots dating back to the 1800's.

Now I lay me down to sleep
My humans' bed is soft and deep
I sleep right in the center grove
My human beings can hardly move!
I've trapped their legs, they're tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night
Peacfully, without a doubt
Til morning comes and I want out!
I sneak up slowly to begin
nibbling on my humans' chin
They soon awake to care for me
Cuz I'm their critter, don't you see?
Now mornings here and time to play
I always seem to get my way!
From first light to the setting sun
I count my blessings one-by-one!
So thank you Lord for giving me
These human people that love me
The ones who hug and hold me tight
And share their bed with me at night!

We headed back to the condo, hoping to leave by 5pm for the drive home.....that just didn't happen! The three of us picked up, cleaned out the fridge and packed the car. We sadly left at 7pm!!! I drove the first 3 1/2 hours, but I was just exhausted, so C took over the driving. Clover's mom was co-pilot and on we continued. We got in at 5am. I woke my own Puggy gang so J could play with them for a bit. She went in for a quick nap and I visited with P. C had gone up to get a few hours sleep before class! We really took every last minute to enjoy ourselves. I drove J to the airport (sadly) and dropped her off and continued on to work.....gosh, was I tired!
Big thanks to my driving companions!!!! You two were the best!

Then onto the winter wonderland.....this place was AMAZING....
I looked these over, but they were several HUNDRED dollars each!
There was a room full of Santas for those that collect these.
After leaving we headed over to purchase our tickets for the ghost tour, stopped to pick up stuff we wanted at Trader*Joes and then stopped at *New*Town*. This place was very cool. Alternative living style with great shops and people living in apartments above. We had to introduce Clover's mom to *Maggie*Moo* icecream! YUM!!!!
After all this we went back to condo and C grabbed a 26 minute nap. We ate leftovers and raced off to the GhostTour. The city looks different after dark.....
Another spot of ghostly activity. There was also a tour put on by the city itself that allowed you in to a few buildings...this was one of them. A tour went inside while we were outside. We did NOT hear any screams and no one ran from the building....
The guide told us some great local folklore and there were places we wished we had time to visit, but our trip was sadly coming to an end....

Can you imagine cooking here?
The group with Jefferson.....
The walkway had really cool bronze plates on the way in/out
