By all means, adopt her instead. I wouldn't want to do the ironing or laundry. Just the yard work and cooking, and baking, and vacationing, and fun trips, and visits with Mum...............

She thinks she's getting away with murder when he opens the gate and lets her out into the huge wooded expanse. She nearly wears her nose off sniffing and searching for "treasures." When they come back to home base, Harley takes a long cool swim in the 2-acre pond before rocketing back through the gate and heads straight for the food bowl and a nap under the old pear trees near the back of the house.

I often hop on the back of the vehicle and enjoy the adventure. It's beautiful. All lush and green. All manner of trees and wildflowers in amazing abundance. So...here's my smile. When Glenn came in a little while ago, he brought me these: Queen Anne's Lace, orange trumpet flowers, moon flowers, black-eyed Susans, wild yellow daisies, and some other wild plant I recognize but don't know the name. He wanted to get some of the beautiful purple vetch but it had already gone to seed.
Oh my gosh. Those are beautiful. You are one lucky gal.
