We are grateful for a wonderful trip to Florida to visit our daughter and her family for 12 days, including the Disney World excursion.

For our son and our daughter-by-love sharing their son with us for several weeks.  He is our eldest grandson and at 7 is so much fun.  He shared our Florida trip and has become fast friends with the Mastiff pup, who now weighs in at a tiny 102 lbs at 6.5 months.

For our youngest son and his family for making a stop for dinner and visiting last night on their vacation, hope you are enjoying your camping trip.

For our newest family member, the 4 month old German Shepherd pup we picked up in South Carolina as we motored home from Florida.  She is adjusting well to the household and is beginning to hold her own with the beast.  He actually ran from her this morning.

For the rains that are producing the garden bounty, allowing some putting by for the winter months.

For the cool foggy mountain morning, knowing it will be hot and humid later.
