For years my mom claimed she didn’t like dogs, but she constantly cuddles with Angus (or vice versa, to be fair) and I caught her voluntarily petting the labrador in a car whose driver stopped to talk to her. Then she told me other day that she had bought the cantaloupe I was eating “with the dogs in mind.” I love it; she is completely converted!
Mom and I biking at Smithville Park
I love being here. I have done a few productive things but we also take time to go biking and walking and we still drink cocktails almost every day at 5:00. As you have probably guessed, most of my sightseeing is done. I think so, anyway, but I have proved to be an unreliable planner. I leave tomorrow for Blacksburg and I will spend a couple weeks there. Then we’ll see.
