Bandit went to his first family crayfish party. It was held at Aunt C's house in Bellevue. We celebrated Papa's August 31 birthday and the fact that Farmor and Farfar are leaving September 15 for a month in Finland and Sweden. All the family was there except for Uncle F who is in Carmel, California for a wallpapering job, though Aunt C said he has called and has come down with a severe flu (of the swine variety maybe?). Bandit was kind of wound up during the visit because he really needs those good solid naps, so during dinner Mama had to put his leash on him and then step on the leash so he could only lay down or sit. He loved all the attention, and enjoyed his first crayfish party snappsang (Helan gar).
