Sorry you had rain all day on your tour, I can see where that would be miserable. My doctor prescribes us those little homeopathic pellets. You're supposed to take 5 or so (like you said between six and eight) and put them under your tongue until they dissolve. I'm glad you had the presence of mind to figure out what to do with Graham to cool him down! Glad you made it home in record time! Thanks for taking us along on your trip!
