I am now at home again after five good days in Maine (with brief visits in New Hampshire and Massachusetts).
Penne went wild with excitement when we saw each other at her pet-sitters' home. (She'd been at that home for five days - the sitters described her as "an angel", and wanted to keep her!)
She also went "over the top" when we got back to my home and she was re-united with the cats.
More soon -- I am now ready for bed after a day of travel.
