Dave bought a new grill and he's getting the hang of it. Last weekend he grilled with overhead entertainment provided by Geneseo's National Warplane Museum.
The burgers were only slightly overcooked, it was hard to keep his attention focused you know.
We bought a new kayak and returned Lisa's with our thanks. Dave slips away often for a quiet glide along the lake's shoreline.
Nina and Paul et al have brought "the beast" and settled into Beluga's driveway spot for a few weeks. Both motorhomes fit nicely in the driveway and it's so pleasant to visit with them on a relaxed schedule. We haven't seen them for a year so we have lots to catch up on.

Lewis is enjoying his visitors enormously (they've come specifically to see him, haven't they?) and it's fun to see how he and Polly relate to each other as adults. They play a bit but mostly just walk around and sniff things together. Occasionally they lift their heads and bark (in unison) at nothing in particular. Mostly Lewis wants to go inside the beast. It has kitties.
In their younger days they were insane, playing and romping and running together. They kept us in stitches!
|in Quartzsite, Polly would wait outside Beluga until Lewis noticed her and came out to play|
|Nina had their attention at White Water Draw|
|they used to be darn hard to photograph, just a black blur...|
Sometimes Polly will come into the cottage on her own, if I leave the door open. She knows where the treats are and enjoys receiving them but politely waits until someone notices her.
She also enjoys her daily swims. When Paul swims, she races him. He lets her win, she likes that.
|he's gaining on her!|
Lewis participates by flying along on the dock next to them, or encouraging from the shore. Different strokes for different folks.
Dave and Paul have kept busy working on their mobile homes. Dave really has a great time with Paul and they get lots of work done together. Later on I think they'll find some time to play some golf.
|this day they're taking Beluga's washer out and tomorrow the refrigerator goes, oh dear....|
|Dave and Paul kindly allow Lewis to help|
Thursday night we had a good dinner at the Rabbit Room and have shared second cup and happy hours together most every day.
Life is good when friends visit.
