So we're home. The yard looks beautiful and there's a loud frog in or near the pond. The sad news is that Junior, our almost 12-year-old goldfish died while we were gone. If he's the only pet that meets his demise as a result of his trip I guess I'll be happy. (Barney was PTS right after a vacation and Pixel was PTS right before). Another semi-sad thing is that the robin's nest is down off the lamp near the front door. I'll miss them. It's good to be home but I'm exhausted. I just want to hit the sack.
