Well Amigos,  The Red Man visited Uncle Collin Gist with Tennis Ball Obsessed Chelsea today when she went for her second chemo treatment and thought he was just along for the ride to keep her company. Not so fast, my amigo.

Before you could say kiss my paw, The Red Man was in the same room with Pretty and the old woman Slow and TBO Chelsea and Uncle Collin Gist who turned out to be another Hottie Doc and no Uncle at all. Well, I never.

To make a long story short, TBO Chelsea was led away by a young girl in a blue uniform, and that was the last I saw of her while The Red Man was interviewed and inspected by Hottie Doc Three. Being the focus of attention isn’t always a good thing, if you catch my drift. Be careful what you wish for. I must have passed the inspection with flying colors because the girl in blue didn’t come take me away, and I escaped with Pretty and Slow before anyone had time to reconsider.

On the way home from the vet’s office, we went through the drive-thru at Rush’s to get unsweet tea for Pretty and Dr.Pepper for the old woman Slow and french fries for moi. Ah yes, french fries – one of the basic food groups and nectar of the gods. Unfortunately, it was a small order and “shared” by all of us so one of us was short-changed. Guess who. You have three guesses, and the first two don’t count.

Casa de Canterbury looked really good to me when we finally pulled into the driveway, and I have to admit I was exhausted from the whole excursion. I took a nap and dreamed it was raining french fries, hallelujah.

TBO Chelsea came home later this afternoon and apparently got a good report from our new best friend Uncle Collin Gist so that made everyone as happy as they were with the Gamecocks winning the first football game of the season against the Tar Heels tonight. All in all, a banner day.

Happy Labor Day weekend, Sports Fans…enjoy your favorite football team games and US Open tennis, too. Travel safe if you’re leaving home.

Get me outta here, Percy…it’s way past my bedtime…
