  1. Great pictures — catches the whole summer on the deck gestalt. I particularly like the Book of Three image. Anyway, I’m looking forward to coming home & going straight to the dogs!

  2. Yeah, total doggie gestalt! It was so much fun to hang out with the Pups of Mill Street last week. They miss you.

    Hmm, I wonder what a dog or cat thinks when his/her human comes back home… something like I’m going straight to the two-legged ones (and their good love, food trough, treats, etc.).

    Everything else has gone to hell while you are away, as I’m sure CM has kept you informed. The lawn needs mowing, all of the bonsai are dead and withered, and your collage room has been renovated to be a yarn database den. Oh, and all the bills are overdue, there is next to nothing left in the fridge, and did I mention the bonsai?


    See you soon, chujoe!! Or would that now be chujames?

  3. Super hilarious. I’ll make a quick trip to Agway tomorrow to re-stock. You’ll never know!!

    Jus’ kidding, papajoe!
