Mom is giddy for the following reasons:
1. Her 30th high school reunion is this weekend, which means she has passed "Go" and is somewhere between middle age and wisdom. Well, we're not sure about wisdom. Here's a bark out to all her classmates and their pets! She's super sorry to miss you.AS FOR ME, I'm just holding down the fort in my little long way.
2. Mom couldn't make it to her high school reunion because she needs to keep doing physical therapy for her shoulder and knee. (It's also nine time zones away.)
3. That view. Wow. (And look how well Mom is holding me--her arm is getting better!)
4. There are often carved wooden Swiss Trolls on or near doorways of huts in the Swiss mountains. Mom is practicing for her new position as a Senior Swiss Troll.
