This is going to be a place where I record the happenings - happy, sad, funny, frustrating - of life up here on our little ranch. We had rain this morning but the afternoon was clear and cool so I trimmed the garden path and then relaxed on the patio with Camille and the dogs. Kersey, who is 3 months old, figured out how to play tug-of-war with a toy and promptly tugged so enthusiastically that the toy tore apart. After running all over the property with Sedona, she climbed into my lap wet and muddy, and fell asleep. ...I love puppies.
