The Saints and Sinners Literary Festival was last weekend, which meant I was in New Orleans from last Thursday until Monday afternoon. Prior to that I was taking care of somebody’s home and dog for three days, which meant I’d been away from home for quite some time. I missed my dogs terribly and was as happy to see them. It may not look like it in the above photo, but Pixie is very happy to see me. She’s seconds from slithering down the sectional to lick my face, or the camera lens. Whichever she reaches first.
