The World According to Bella | "Back to the Desert"

There was a lot of packing going on so I assumed we're going back to the lake.


With a very full van I wasted no time hopping in. I did not want to be left behind for this ride. I kept a very close watch on Mr. C's driving to make sure we were going north and not west.

After many hours nothing looked familiar and all I could see was blowing snow-maybe we were going north but just a different way but when he turned, headed west and the snow disappeared, my worst fears were confirmed-it was Back to the Desert for me.

For those of you who may have forgotten about my nightmare javelina escapade and Mr. C's hospital stay read on A Night of Terror I kept nudging Mr. C letting him no there was some mistake over where we were going, but all he did was ignore me.

After awhile I resigned myself to a long car ride. I power napped a lot and learned to pee on command at all the rest stops. At two hotel stops I learned the drill. I'd pretend to sleep at night (though Mr. C and Mrs. S didn't know I laid awake all night listening to all the scary new noises). Then in the morning Mr. C would feed me, we 'd go out, I'd do my business and head straight for the van. No since wasting time inside a room I didn't like.

After what seemed like endless hours of riding, I'd check from time to time to see what Mrs. S was doing

She thought I'd like to hear this story, a recent Christmas gift, but the more Mrs. S read about javelinas the more anxious I felt. 

And when we got out at this rest stop I remembered this scary sign from last year. Now I was really starting to worry. 

But once we arrived at the same house from last year I perked up. It all was familiar and I do like the patio for morning sunning.

So let the shedding begin but know I am on high alert at all times looking for any scary desert creatures.

Love, Bella

P. S. I wanted you to know that Mr. C and Mrs. S gave me an A+ for traveling out to Arizona. I was a very good car rider and never once asked, "Are we there yet?" But I still wished this was a beach vacation not a desert one.
