Indio, California: DT and I have returned to Indio and have brought a Little Guy with us. Leo? Are you nuts? No, we have brought our Grand Dawg, Reese, for a little R&R. The kids are coming for a visit in a bit, so we all agreed Reese would probably enjoy a few days of long walks and toddler-free respite… and DT and I would enjoy a few days with our darling little Grand Dawg.
By the way… 1) when we are at Lenny & Lisa’s house, Reese sleeps on the foot of ourbed in the guest room, and 2) Leo’s name for Reese: Ceese, and 3) Reese is just one of a long line of chocolate-themed dogs in our extended family – Snickers… Godiva… Hershey… and 4) Reese is the last-living of our family pooches.
Hard to believe this mutt (Reese is a true pound-puppy rescue dog) is nearly 11 years old! Fairly-sure Reese is a Yorkie/Mini-Poodle gone wrong, but we will never know. He is just what he is and we love Reese and are fairly certain he likes us as well (thus the whole-sleeping-on-the-foot-of-our-bed-in-the-guest-room-thing).
We took Reese for a ride around the resort this evening via our golf cart. He remembered how to get up on the seat and really enjoyed his little sunset cruise.
While I was out exercising today, I noticed quite a few campers have seriouslydecorated for the Christmas holiday.
Simple, yet elegant.
What to decorate when there are no Fir trees for miles.
Reese is handling his renewed status as #1 Grandchild with regal composure. We hope to spoil him as much as possible before he is returned to Los Angeles.

SLOGGER REPORT: Don’t laugh/cry, but I did not exercise for three days while in Los Angeles. (Not that I didn’t fall into bed each night exhausted after spending the day with a toddler.) I was right back at-it today, clocking off another five miles. Yeah, me. (This does not include the 1.5 miles I walked with Reese… because walking with Reese isn’t exactly exercise. He is 11 and has had both rear ACL’s repaired. Reese actually jogs slower than me. 72 miles down; 28 miles to go.
Go. Go. Go.
