This fellow is getting a shower with me tonight, in addition to getting a combing and nail cutting. Will be cutting and hauling firewood for many weekends to come. I enjoy the effects of demanding physical work on both my mental health and physical health. Another positive aspect of living in the country and decreasing dependence on external resources. I tried to take a group portrait of both Benny and my brother's Schnauzer, Cooper, when he was visiting, but ended up blending two photos of Benny, as Cooper would have nothing to do with posing on the bench in the studio. Benny is so used to it, all I have to do is point and he will jump up, sit, and give me his photogenic mug. I remember you stating that you enjoyed "To Kill a Mockingbird" in High School. I see the author, Harper Lee, passed away today at 89. Friday evening and although it was a short week for me, glad to have the two days off. Enjoying a Michelob light in my flannel pajamas and wishing you were here.
