Yesterday Mom and Aunt LaDene drove to a town called Weston, which is in Missouri, but just barely, because you can look across the Missouri River from there and see Kansas. Here's a picture of downtown Weston. Mostly, it's just a couple of blocks of old brick buildings with shops in them.
Aunt Marie has her very own company which is called Bella and Company. It is called that because she and Aunt Kate used to have a dog named Bella. You can learn more about Aunt Marie's company by going to this website: http://www.bellacompany.com/ You can buy t-shirts and artwork and hats and all sorts of good things right online, and you won't even have to go to Weston! And by the way, I will just mention that I am not being paid or even given extra dog treats to talk about Aunt Marie Mason's artwork. I am just doing this because I think the artwork is nice, even when it doesn't have dogs in it or if it has cats instead of dogs.
I just don't understand why Mom acts the way she does sometimes! But I'm glad that Mom finally came home from Weston, and it was only a little bit past time for Supper of Dogs. And then she stayed home all evening and we got to watch "Robin Hood" on the BBC America channel, which is what we like to do on Saturday nights. So I am trying to forgive Mom for being so weird sometimes, and it's easier to forgive her if life is mostly normal again.
