Everything arrived quickly except the willow dog bed which was mailed from Bosnia-Herzegovina on March 14 and arrived at our house April 19.
I was hoping the 60-centimeter-long bed would be a good fit for Dash as a puppy and also as a grown dog. At last count he weighed 7 pounds at 11 weeks. He shouldn’t grow to much more than 10 pounds.
When the bed arrived I padded it with an old feather bed pillow. Dash knew it was his and he hopped right in it.
Actually I ordered two baskets exactly alike just in case Sug decided to get a puppy, too. After much consideration she is getting a puppy born April 17. We’ll be picking him up in the middle of June. So exciting.
We’re planning to visit Stonehenge while we’re in England later this year. The price for entry into Stonehenge is £17.50 ($24.50) per person. The price of the ticket during the public hours from 9:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. does not allow one to actually walk among the stones.
I applied to English Heritage to allow us to come in the early morning before the public opening to allow us to get an up close-and-personal look at the stones.
We were contacted by email that our application had been conditionally accepted if we made payment by phone within 7 days. I called immediately.
Rebecca told me in a lovely British accent that their computers were down and could I call the next day.
I called the next day bright and early our time — afternoon their time. I gave all my information and paid £77 for the two of us to spend one hour in the stone circle up close and personal. We must arrive 15 minutes before our scheduled entry at 6:45 a.m. We might be sharing the circle with up to 30 people. Our entry also gets us into the gift shop, museum, and perimeter of the stones but not until the actual opening at 9:30 a.m.
