I am typing this from the bed in the guest room. It and my office are currently the only rooms with furniture. Doppler is curled up in the bed. Roxie is down on the floor.
What we have now is benign neglect. They can be close, just not too close! Doppler has snarled and gone after Roxie. Bad idea. Roxie weighs at least twice as much, maybe more.
All this has come about because Stef drove down from Hollywood. Today it was a 45 minute trip. It has also taken twice that long.
Driving here can be a crap shoot especially when these two words are included: “The Five.”
There is a community pool two streets from our house. Stef and I walked over. She was in a two piece. I wore shorts, t-shirt and carried a towel to place over my pale white legs.
One of us is more a Californian than the other!
Being this close to Stef is a bonus. My daughter is a grown-up. We spent our time at the pool schmoozing. It’s so much easier to schmooze in person than on the phone.
This was a planned down day for H and me. I spent a few minutes at Home Depot. Helaine and Stef will probably hit Ralph’s.
We get busy again tomorrow. The painters should finish, opening the way for lots of furniture to be delivered Saturday.
