Mary, It was lovely meeting you at the Danville art exhibit on May 1st. Hope your travels were uneventful and that your Goldie is recovering from the pond stunt! I love your artwork of the goldens! I’m enjoying reexploring your post on RhyPiBo regarding Common Core.
I had a wonderful time meeting you and your lovely young ladies.
Sailor is doing well, but I keep checking to see if the scabs are ticks.
