I moved here in June 2010 I think. Moved into the casita. Lived there until casa was built. After 6 years we are freshening up the casita. Inside and out. floors and roof . The workers have used it as a hangout for 4 years, and Terri wants it to be "bright and cheery". :lol: We may get too many visitors and overflow the casa this year at Day of the Dead time, so we can have folks bunk there too. Something to do. There is ALWAYS stuff to do. So we will paint the inside fully, the outside fully, strip and re-seal the tile floors, reseal the tile roof, repaint the ironwork. Terri will be happy 8-)

She continues to try to keep up with the young beagle, but then she collapses and we are not sure if she is going to come back. She has been a good dog for three years. We have taken her to the vet a bunch, everyone loves her, but she is done. Tonight it is clear how hard everything is for her.

She still hangs on. :clap: Some mornings things are hard for her, but I figure as long as she can run behind the beagle she good to keep going. Today I was watching her sleep half-in and half out of her bed and i watched a fly crawl into her nose and never saw it cime out :roll: oh well :P

Dogs have the ability to be comfortable in the most uncomfortable looking positions. :lol:

We flew into LA last night. Here for fun (a wedding), sadness (a friend's daughter od'd on that %^&*#$ synthetic heroin, need to spend a little time with our friends, It's not safe to dabble these days..., and boring stuff (stroke related). We will be here for a week but have appointments, meetings or events every friggin day. :evil: The stroke bs has made it impossible to drink a proper amount of blanco tequila -- depressing :whistle:

Too bad you are too booked up to hit the Cantina for some tequila. Not that I personally can handle tequila at my advanced age. It actually has brought a tear to my eye that we miss shall you again. But, wait, it is actually all the smoke that has blotted out the sun from the fire in Santa Clarita and the Angeles National Forest that is causing the tears. It is pretty bad, and, per the map at weatherunderground.com I am not even in the worst part of the smoke. That led me to wonder if Ryan is out in the 110* heat battling vicious fires in really difficult terrain? Talk about having to be in good shape physically. Forest fire fighters have to be high up on the scale with all the equipment and gear and heat and rugged terrain that they have to deal with.

I'd also say that fire fighters have to be risk takers by nature, but, naturally, since he is your kid, that is no problem..................

It is good that people like Ryan actually are willing to put in the work and take the risks to help keep things somewhat under control as far as fires go as it can be a really tough job. As an aside, every time I bite into a really hot pepper, I remember how I got Ryan, with a dare, to take a big bite out of a hot pepper, when he was still a green kid. Seems that he was not accustomed to hot food and he fell for the fact that I was chomping them down like candy. It is always good to imprint youngsters with a favorable opinion of yourself. So, I hope that he stays safe out there as the Angeles Crest is very rugged.
