Trains, Planes and Automobiles

Bella came home last night but still has her IV pic.  The vet wanted to see her again today so she stayed with my daughter and son-in-law last night.  We went over and as soon as we walked in the room she was up and trying to get to Ron.  Her tail was just wagging away.....Ron and I just held her and stroked her while she gave Ron a tongue bath........sweet baby!  I felt a lot better after seeing her and I think she will be back with us tonight.  I totally think she will start eating better once she is home. She has an arsenal of meds to take and some of it she doesn't like.  I'm not worried, Ron can get her to do anything!

I've been checking out the Amtrak schedules to see what it would cost to ride the train somewhere.  The fares are very reasonable.  We could go from OKC to Ashland, Virginia for $425.00 round trip for two people.  The problem is it would take us 57 hours.  No sleeping compartment!  I'm not sure I'm up to that long a trip.  So.....may OKC to San Antonio, $74.00/two round trip.  I've never seen the Alamo so why not?  I'm ready for an adventure.......a short adventure!

Go for it! You need a break and a relaxing train ride (the shorter one!) sounds like a perfect idea.

just got back from san Antonio.....the Alamo, don't blink or you will miss it. There are great restaurants on the river walk, it was a nice time. I would suggest it and let me know about the train, matt is jonesing to take a train ride.

Hope Bella is back with you soon, licking her way to happiness. I take a train to Florida every year. The ride is kind of fun ... but it is slow.
