Warning: some 'gripe, moan, complain' stuff coming.
Why does it take so dingdang long to finish things?!?
Why can't we get out to the mountains to see the fall colors?!
(Because we can't finish our work, that's why.)
Why can't the Brick completely get rid of this pesky infection?

Look quick, though -- our fall colors are nearly finished.

Oh my, it's been an strange week. Hot, hot, hot. The dogs find the coolest spot on the tile, and stay there...hoping for a fan breeze....
Our gentle, soft Golden Lab died early this morning. She was nearly 14. We (including her buddy Charley) loved her dearly...and will miss ...
