|The llama in the playhouse.|
Yet, there have been advantages. Walking to daily Mass. Spending time with my dad, my older children, my grandson, and my cousins. Being present for the many special events that took place with my family this summer. Seeing some old friends and making some new. Then, there are those things that can only happen in Southern California: black beans, lettuce and ranch dressing as pizza toppings. Spending the morning in the mountains and the afternoon at the beach. Hummer stretch limos.

The new dogs are awesome. The llamas were utterly displeased with sharing the back yard with them, however, so a new pen has been constructed for them. It does have a nice shed, which, when cleaned out, will make as nice a shelter as the playhouse they were using in the back yard.
