My mom indulges the dogs so much she buys them cantaloupe

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 at Smithville by you.

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.


Planning Labor Day in Jersey

Ah, the dogs are napping on the carpet in my parents’ air-conditioned house as we wait to hear whether the barbeque at the pool is postponed until tomorrow or not.  We plan to stay here about a week to catch up with my parents.

no love for angus by you.

The dogs get no love here
