Today I got to visit my very special, long time friends Sharon and John. They are back from their trip to Kenya to visit their son. It was so great to see them and they were very patient with Emma and Einstein, who tried once to gobble up their aunt’s little dog. After lunch Sharon and I took the dogs to Red Rock Canyon. What a beautiful place. It was a gorgeous day for a hike. The dogs loved all the smells. We saw a family of quail and a jack rabbit. I’m told there are scorpions and snakes, among other things, but we didn’t see or feel the sting or bite of anything. When we returned to their beautiful home, John made us the most amazing steaks for dinner. They tasted like Mesquite and spices. He’s a fantastic cook. Thank you, John!
