Early Morning Phone Calls

Mass pandemonium this morning! Five teachers out, many substitutes unavailable because of the holidays. I'm afraid I'll have to go in and teach a class myself!

(No real risk of that.)

Anyway, while I wait for subs to call back I thought I'd manage a quick blog post. Dave and I spent a quiet day at home yesterday. He had a lot of work to do and I tackled "Vanity Fair." Then last night we went to dinner with Chris and Linda, our neighbors across the hall, at our local gastropub -- a last holiday hurrah of sorts before they vanish into deepest Surrey and we fly to the states.

Hopefully I'll get out and about with the camera today. That's the plan, anyway!

  1. Oh. That dog. Faithful. Ready to drive away at a moment's notice.

  2. That pooch driving the lorry made my day!- On NPR the other day - talking about a guy who has actually trained three dogs to DRIVE! Successfully!
    Flying back to the states during x-mas time- You are either very homesick, brave or insane...

  3. Did you check to make sure the dog had a license to drive a truck??

  4. LOVE the picture! And I hope you found all the substitutes you needed!
