This picture of Elliot, an English bulldog, just arrived in my email from a friend who says the picture is unposed -- as it is impossible to get Elliot to pose for anything. It's hot over most of the country and even dogs have coping mechanisms. I hope you all have your own ways of keeping cool.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
