Don, love your post about your seven year old puppy. Our girl is four. The markings on her face make her look like a senior citizen, but she's not! She has a lot of white on her muzzle, which, when mixed with the black underneath, looks gray. I told her not to sweat it, though, because she gets special attention when people thinks she's old.
Much of my garden is beginning to give it up, but the okra is just now taking off. I'll be picking it until early October. Wish you all were closer so I could share with you.
I have some rewriting and editing to do, but wanted to stop by and say hello. Y'all behave.
