I got tired of looking at the picture of a very pregnant Bonnie. After all, she has that big old baby who is two weeks old today. Max has learned a lot in his short life. He and his mother seem to avoid the side of the ditch where he fell in over a week ago, so they've both learned something on that score. Max already knows what happens when he touches an electric fence, so he stays on the proper side of them. He does hang out with Jody a lot, as closely as he dares with an electric fence between them.
Our friends did not make it here yesterday evening. I talked to Celeste on the phone before bedtime, and she said between the breakdown with her bike and the extreme heat (99 degrees), she couldn't go on any further, so they camped. I expect to see them some time today.
