We have no news to report from Silver City, except that Max is healing really well. He’s up to his old tricks – bringing me the errant sock, my slippers or shoes (one by one), and the occasional toy as an enticement to play.
It’s great to see him running, jumping, spinning, and playing with other dogs at the dog park. I don’t even really mind that he is snatching the above mentioned footwear. It just shows me that he is back to himself again.
We just got back from today’s visit to the dog park, where he met another new friend. Bella is a 2-year-old rescue dog who was visiting Silver City with her people from Rio Rancho – north of Albuquerque. The dogs had fun and we people had a nice visit, so it was another good adventure.
On the way to the park, I stopped at Three Dogs for a latté. This great little place was almost a daily habit when we were here last year, and it didn’t disappoint today. As I got out of the car, a man came over and commented on how far from home I was. We ended up talking for about 10 minutes about Honda Elements, travel, how I ended up in Silver City… those Maine plates – or that gorgeous (albeit banged up looking) Poodleboy – will get a conversation going every time!
I just got my lenses for the iPhone today and took a couple of fisheye pix of Mr. Max. Since I have no other news to report, I’ll share those pix, as well as one of my Silver City studio from the other morning.
I also got my first set of Pimsleur Italian lessons the other day and am starting to listen to them for 30 minutes a day…
And how about an update on what I’ rading these days? My friend, Sarah, sent me a box of tools and other goodies from my island studio last week. In the box, she included A Year with Hafiz. I’ve been reading a poem at breakfast every morning.
When I was at White Sands National Monument, I bought a book titled Nobody’s Horses, about the wild horse roundup that took place there back in 1994. I just finished it last night, and it was a fascinating read. Well written, informative, emotional, and uplifting.
Before that, Zero Day, by David Baldacci satisfied my need for a good thriller…
So, until the next post, I hope these pix were worth 1,000 words!
