The first photo is the “concept photo” for my son’s preschool photo shoot. I’m pretty sure the theme was “Squatter in a Heroin Den.” (Apologies to the little girl and her parents. They are victims here, too.) The second photo is of my son, who cried and screamed and argued vehemently for over five minutes in what was likely a toddler attempt to say he didn’t want to catch Hep C. The chair was removed in the end and we now have a pic of my son, trying to calm down but still wanting just to get the hell out of there. William 2019-20.

I’m confident she measures on the canine Autistic Spectrum—if you’re a stranger, don’t make eye contact with her—but she’s also the best mannered dog I’ve ever taken into the wilderness and she loves our kids as much as they love her. She’s special, for sure, and that’s why we love her. Happy #nationaldogday Juniper

I had to add the second trellis wire to one area of the vineyard. I didn’t expect the vines to reach much higher than 30” in the first year, but one is apparently the Vine of Babel. I may have to add a third wire before the season ends, at this rate.

Spent the morning visiting relatives in Heber. The house was built in 1877 by my great great grandfather, George. I was tempted to knock on the door and ask to look around, but resisted. Relatives no longer live there. Maybe I’ll knock next time just because.
