For those who have not spent extended time in California, it is hard for them to wrap their minds around our two seasons -- dry and wet -- and even harder for them to believe we go with less than an inch of rain for up to nine months. So when the wet season first begins, I am excited to see it and retire the watering in the back garden for a while. Barely a week into it, though, I am usually anxious for it to end. However, since it only started Thursday, I am still in the enjoyment phase. It's also helpful as I deal with this weird mourning phase of not having Guru in the house. We only had two months together, but the bond was deep.

In the meantime, discussion is in the works about this little boy being sprung from a shelter in Mesquite, Texas, and coming out West provided he's not placed with a foster in Dallas. I'm next in line provided his psychological profile proves to be suitable.

Mouse - Seeing him behind bars make him even more of a heart breaker.

I love the rain. I think I might even be happy to live in Portland or somewhere similarly wet. It feels like it's barely drizzled here, but I have come to love nothing better in this arid quarter than the sound of water dripping off trees and rooftops.

And how cute is that little guy!? I want one!

Joe - I love Portland weather. The rain and high winds were getting to me Saturday, but I love quick showers and then sunbreaks. Though I actually like weather that is ever changing. Thus, I'd go crazy in Hawaii or San Diego.

I was thinking of you when I was in SB Wednesday for about 62 minutes, having a great outdoor lunch on State Street with my boss. Next time, I hope I can come down and introduce you to a barooing basenji.
