Catching up

I hadn't planned to abandon the blog this week, 
but Charlie, a friend who I hadn't seen in a very long time, came to visit. 
We had to catch up on 42 years in two days.

This is the only picture I took during Charlie's visit. 
This is Charlie's son Carl, who instantly befriended Smooch,
partly because Smooch is irresistable and also because
who in their right mind wants to listen to the oldish people
reminiscing about what they did in high school?


It was a wonderful visit that left Smooch watching and wondering
when her new friends will return.
