We know all of our American friends are celebrating a long weekend and many will not even see this post until next week. Don’t worry though—this is how we plan to spend our time.

Not that we do this just on weekends.

So Happy Independence Day, dear readers. Hope everyone stays safe, healthy, and has fun. We will.

    I’m hoping you have a relatively quiet few days. I always think of Frankie’s noise issues.

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
