We dropped the dogs of for grooming and did some tourist type shopping. We each bought a couple things, Ouuuued and Ahhhhed over a bunch more, and enjoyed the sunshine between stores. It was a nice upper 60s or lower 70s, and just gorgeous. We finally stopped for lunch at "Lucy and Ethel's," the place I love to frequent, and lunch was yummy. But the were out of the creme brulee cheesecake I promised Caroline!! Rats!! They promise to have some tomorrow, and I will definitely be sure we go back for it!
I brought Caroline and the dogs home and ran to get a haircut. They took a nap while I was away. Caroline and Sophie are both feeling the effects of high altitude. Now, Caroline won't let me show you the pictures of her, but this picture of Sophie will give you a clue about how tired you might feel in your first 24 hours at 7000 feet when you've been living at about 600 in Kansas City. Sophie was goooooone!!
As promised I give you a picture of the freshly coiffed Ali and China. They were so happy in their new summer "do's." The bench they are on, by the way, is a new addition for the deck.
A couple nights ago I caught the moon over the mountain in the late afternoon. It was a really cool sight.
And last night when Caroline and I stepped out, we saw a similar sight.
China and Ali waited for me in the recliner earlier tonight.
China had her front half on the arm of the chair and was nestled in for the duration.
Caroline and Sophie were sitting on the couch, and Ali decided to join them. Sophie said, :Well, forget this!" and jumped down. Ali didn't care. He just rolled up next to Caroline and enjoyed a tummy rub!
And for everyone to see how well it worked out, here is the butterfly tag on the front of the truck. I couldn't believe that the color was perfect! It is exactly the same as the truck.
A little close up!
We are having a good time. Haven't done much of that work I promised to make her do, but that's OK. Life is good. Actually ....... Life is beautiful!!
