And I thought it was bad my husband wants two dogs to replace the one we lost due to old age two years ago. I can't imagine what my response would be to a llama or alpaca request. LOL. I still can't envision replacing my beloved border collie, Riley. What a great dog he was.
I've been out of the saddle Sunday and Monday because I worked too hard a bit on Saturday and paid for it with a sore/pulled left hamstring. Should be back on the bike in the morning. Early. Like John_V says, a half-hour can make a big difference with this heat and humidity.
Life's a journey--and I'm just here for the ride.
