|IT'S FRIENDSHIP, FRIENDSHIP — DUDO HUGGING MOOSE.|
(CLICK ANY IMAGE TO FEEL THE LOVE.)
I had a challenging day Saturday. No reason. I was just "off." After coffee, I came home and went back to bed for two hours. San Geraldo — my best friend and one and only — joined me for a cuddle and a nap. That helped.

I played with Dudo and Moose and enjoyed one of San Geraldo's delicious salads for lunch (and his delicious company). I puttered on the terrace — trimmed and tied the jasmine (which has survived hungry caterpillars and the cyclonic winds of winter), and shuffled plants around.
I washed windows so I could once again admire the view of the Mediterranean Sea without saying to myself, "The windows need washing." (Being so exposed to the sea, sand, and winds, they need washing once a week — at least.) Then I sat at the computer. Mostly with Dudo on my lap.

At one point, I was hungry, thirsty, and I needed to "use the office" (click here if you don't know what I mean). But I didn't want to disturb Dudo, so I waited an hour until he got off my lap for a big stretch. I did what I needed to do, sat back down, and Dudo returned to my lap.
|BEFORE THE STRETCH...|
|... AND AFTER.|
We went to Meson Salvador (where they treat us like family) for dinner with Tom and Linda (family that are friends). And Tynan and Elena (friends who have become family) met us for drinks afterward. Today was a better day. Good friends can make all the difference. Just ask Moose and Dudo.
And now it's time to face the music.
