Dinner on the Back Porch

I didn’t think to take a picture of our having dinner on Ann and Cecil’s back porch.  Cecil grilled pork chops and Ann made a huge, artistic salad using lettuce from Cecil’s garden.  I did manage to capture the leftover iced tea glasses.  🙂

Beau, the golden retriever has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  Cookie misses him terribly.  Cookie raced out to greet Sheba, tail wagging furiously.  But Sheba’s exuberance soon had Cookie looking for a quiet space of her own.

Sheba is improving.  She’s not quite so boisterous as she was.  We figure, if we survive the process, she will be a fantastic dog in another year!  She willingly came into the Casita at bedtime the last two nights, which sure beat having to wrestle her inside!

She has loved being able to run free at Mom’s and Ann’s places.  The big test will come when we leave here for a campground where she will have to be restrained all day.

As you can tell, today was a slow news day.  We had lunch at Mom’s, towed the trailer a mile or so down the road to Ann’s, got set up, ate dinner, and are now just enjoying being here together.

  1. What a pretty setting for a good meal with good company!

    (BTW, here is the link to the RV Buddies Group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RVBuddies/).

    • Thanks, Kim. I just submitted my application to RV Buddies. I will hunt up that blog I told you about with the extreme camping out west and send you the link as soon as I find it!

  2. I love porches. What a wonderful one your sister has and a wonderful place to sit and have dinner.

    • You can sit on her back porch and watch the sunrise. It’s a wonderful place for morning coffee!

  3. Who says you can’t teacch an old dog a few tricks :O) Glad she’s beginning to settle in and know when its time to go nite, nite! Nice to be able to lounge on the porches again…so happy to have pleasant weather again.

    • I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be right now. The days are perfect and the nights are cool. And not having to worry about Sheba misbehaving is such a relief! 🙂

  4. covet the porch! beautiful dogs ~ what a gorgeous place …

    • I covet it, too, Carolyn. All I have is decks. Porches are heaven, especially when it’s raining and you can still enjoy being outside!
