So Gail and I had lunch in a lovely historic home, very quaint and interesting. The food was good, too, always a bonus. And we visited several shops in town, watching one man spin wool for a while, talking with town people, and having a casual afternoon.
I took the dogs with us today. They did well, and we met another shih tzu, a little 8 month old boy who was cute as the dickens! Ali explained to him about alpha dogs and beta dogs, and "Buddy" understood it right away, so there was no further discussion! China sniffed noses with him at length, however, and he loved it! After walking and resting off and on for about an hour, China was really dragging. I picked her up and took them back to the truck for a drink and a rest. The truck was in the shade and with the windows 2/3 down, it was comfortable, so they rested while we ate our lunch.
After some more strolling and visiting, we headed back to Capitan. Just as I got to Gail's home, my cell rang. I'd had two messages (no cell reception in Lincoln). I checked them, both from the lady who was giving me these .............
Aren't they cute? Very different from the wild finches in coloring, etc. They seem to be fairly calm being here at home. It will be an adjustment for us all, but I think not a tough one. The dogs sniffed at the cage and watched them hoop around, then wandered off.
In these next pictures, look how fast these little buggers move!!
I love their friendly little chirp-chirp! Sitting on the swing seems especially nice for them. I've noticed they make happy little chirps as they swing gently! So cute!
One more look in which they seem to be saying, "Enough, already!!!" I don't think they mean to be rude, but excuse them anyway!
It was a good day. A good day, indeed!!
Life is beautiful!!!!
