Summer rolls along. I take Noodles for walks before dawn over at Anderson River Park, letting her run and swim and chase sticks in the morning cool. Each day we are rewarded by seeing deer and herons and more birds, especially flocks of swallows diving for insects over the cold Sacramento. I do a little housework, read, get my hair cut, and nap, wishing that vacation was longer and I could carry summer with me. Kim and I watch silly 1950's monster movies in the afternoon heat, then eat cool salads in the constant battle to keep the house cool and not use the air conditioning. Summer is good, it returns my life to me.
