Adjunct pack visits
Herself was in Austin from Friday until today, being grandmotherly and performing a sad social duty. The pup and I enjoy baching it … we eat sardines for lunch without snide comments on the smell and bark a little more than usual. She brought back the grandpuppy for a visit, raising considerably the level of noise and activity around here. Our dog, the blue one, benefits from the company but is often an ingracious hostess, being accustomed to life as an only dog. Nonetheless, they do keep each other occupied, much as two little boys will do. Used to be a country adage to the effect that one boy's a handful, two boys are half a boy, and three boys are no boy at all. Guess there still is if I remember it.
