Flash, Forever My Bud

I’m sad to post that Flash has passed away.  It’s been about two weeks since he was put to sleep due to rapidly-deteriorating health, but it’s not really something I’m having an easy time with, so I haven’t written about it.  That dog will be missed so, so much.

Cesky Krumlov: a Must-See in the Czech Republic!

| October 16, 2015 | Reply

Cesky Krumlov was just supposed to be an overnight pitstop on #3genRT, the 3-generation road trip with my mother and my daughter.
