I’m not kidding.
Being the new kid on the Island, I’m trying to settle in. For me, the official I Have Arrived document (following my driver’s license) is a library card.
After asking where the library is located, Sir Thomas and I ventured out. We heard the usual greetings as we entered — Handsome! You Could Put a Saddle on Him. I Love Your Dog!
Thomas and I continued toward the information desk. The librarian took one look, rose from her chair with her hand extended and said,
“You must be Renee.”
Small Island, I thought.
With a big smile, the librarian added, “The Dame with a Dane.”
It turns out that the delightful Service Dog Project CP* I’d enjoyed lunch with here on the Island is the president of the Friends of the Library.
It may take me some time to get used to WASHINGTON across the top of my license. The new library card in my wallet, however, has me feeling that Tommy and I Have Arrived.
