View Out The Back Door
Me and Andy
Recently I vacationed in Colorado. While I’m not a fan of the whole snowy- winter thing, even I had to admit it was gorgeous.

Crystalline trees (courtesy of an ice storm) and snow piles that puffed like cotton balls dotted the landscape. I went for a jog with a mountainous backdrop and began to appreciate the splendor.

But I doubt that it will be on my short- list of retirement venues.

The trip was to visit my nephew and his girls. And meet his his new gal pal, whom I found delightful.

Since we were in Colorado Springs, we made a stop at the Focus on the Family campus. They have a whole floor of rooms with fun stuff for the kids—we even visited Narnia!

Through the cupboard...

I had the best time hanging out with the fam. And got a bonus: My new BFF (Best Furry Friend) Emmi.
We bonded with instant chemistry. Maybe she sensed that I like dogs more than people?

She would sit at my feet and give a nudge in an attempt to get my attention. Who could resist those beautiful brown eyes? I would scoop her up at every chance so she could burrow in for a snuggle. And with a sigh of ecstasy, she'd doze off. 

Eventually, she’d jump down and go about her business, but would soon return for more loving.

Amazing how a five-pound bit of fluff almost pushed me over the top of the “awwwww” meter. It was all I could do to keep from slipping her into my carry-on.

I heard that after I left, she mourned by the front door, devastated at the loss of her new friend. And maybe she treats everybody that way. But I choose to believe that she thought I was all that and a bag of dog biscuits.

Hope they show her my picture often.
