We are so very excited.  Raggs is getting a ride all the way to western Pennsylvania where we will meet the folks who have volunteered to bring him home when they come home from Hilton Head in South Carolina. He'll spend the night with them and then we'll pick him up there. He won't have to go on a segmented transport.  That doesn't sound all that bad except it would take forever.  Segmented transports uses wonderful volunteers who agree to drive the dogs about an hour and then hand them off to the next driver.  Raggs would have started at 6 am and we'd have gotten him at 10:30 pm and still have needed to drive another hour to get home.  So, keep all your fingers crossed that all goes as planned.  Pat and I will drive a couple of hours the night before we're to get Raggs and then do the rest in the morning.  The 5 hour drive home won't be too hard on us or on the Ragg-man.  

I actually did a little quilting this morning. Marked some blocks and sewed a few of the sections together. Then,  I went with a group of my quilting friends to a Victorian Tea in support of Cancer Research.  It was lovely.  The only draw back was it was about 2 hours from home.  Luckily I was a rider not the driver!  The guest speaker was a lady who makes beautiful porcelain dolls.  I'll have pictures to share tomorrow.  And, lucky me, I won the cutest little longerberger basket.  

Now, I'm off to finish the toe of a sock.  I want to get the second sock started before our trip to western Pa. 

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie
