Getting to know the ranchsitter

 What better way to get to know the new ranchsitter than 
sitting with her at the ranch.


 George gave her his immediate and unconditional approval.


 She realized quickly that ranchsitting can be very demanding...


 ...but the rewards are worth the effort.


Brigitte arrived on Friday from Montreal. 
She has been a reader of this blog and a friend for many years.
She is also the aunt of the late great Don Estorbo de la Bodega Dominicana, 
whose libe as a cad dayeen and dayoud was documented in this blog.



Something tells me that George and Alan will have a ball
while I'm visiting Danni in Portland.
I leave tomorrow and will be back on Friday, no doubt with many pictures and stories to share.

  1. What exciting adventures for both of you! And I'll bet I won't be the first to point out the fact that you two look like sisters.
    Here's to good times all around! XO

    So sorry about the loss of such a big beautiful
    kitty, Brigitte.
