On a less-serious book note: If you haven't read "A Walk in the Woods" or maybe "In a Sunburned Country" by Bill Bryson, they are both quite entertaining. The first was made into a not-so-good movie recently and is about his hikes on the Appalachian Trail. The second is about his visit to Australia. Both are great, fun, mostly lighthearted, reads.

Laundry done, rear shade re-attached with Velcro tape early this morning...I was in denial about that shade, thought that if I ignored it long enough it would fix itself.

Jen and I got to the Wyoming Territorial Prison well before 10 am this morning...after I took a wrong turn onto the interstate and had to backtrack.

Ray & Nancy and a couple of others were already here, and we are short just two at this time. Going to be a great group.

Have toured the prison, pressed some pennies for the grands, and mingled and talked.

I felt like I was awake all night last night, and am feeling very tired, so am leaving the others to carouse a bit more...me, I will read a bit and go night-night.

We will head out about 9am tomorrow, and I will post again when I can.


Maggie

Not to get into a long discussion on pack behavior, but. Dogs, especially those who live in a gentle loving home are constantly looking for a breakdown in leadership and if seen will fill the void out of necessity to keep the pack whole. With single owners it's a constant "testing" to make sure the pack stays safe.

Just be, Lilly is a nice dog-enjoy her as I've witnessed and don't worry about it.

Enjoy the adventure with Ray et al

It's a lot of fun to watch them jockey for position, appeal to my wife for attention, and fight for a spot on the lap or special spots on the furniture.

Dogs are really complex with relationships. Add moving my son's two in and out and it really gets weird.

We spent last night on a ridge overlooking a canyon.

High winds caused us to leave a day early, on to a spot more hospitable.

Lily enjoys roaming free.

Have I said it before? I LIKE that in you. A strong soul...an old soul...my kind of people!
Well said. "A Different Life" puts everything in perspective.

Keep going Maggie and Lily. Just keep going.

P.S. "In a Sunburned Country" is a great read.

I wish I read it before going to Australia. I can't remember if Bryson covered this in his book, but there are many things there you do not see in N. America like....

- bare feet beyond the beach. (In the shopping malls and on the ferries)
- beets and fried egg on the hamburgers
- liquor stores where you can purchase just one can of beer if you'd like vs. a six pack or case
- men habitually greet other men (strangers) on the street with "How ya doin' mate?"
- "flat white" means coffee w/o cream and sugar
- ketchup is called "tomato sauce"

F@N,
I will be meeting Maggie soon, at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. ( I am not going to be surprised if you here is a bit of a halo floating nearby!)

I read A Walk in the Woods and found it most enjoyable. The movie did not do it justice. I intend to read "Sunburned Country" . The synopsis looks appealing.

I would agree with the Bryson books. I have read most of them ( there are quite a few) and he definitely has a different perspective on things.
