Good 54º morning. Just under the triple digit mark yesterday. Only 97º.
Went to see Brian and Jen's new house. It's so lovely. Beautifully landscaped backyard, koi pond, above ground swimming pool, hot tub. Just perfect!
Jen is a busy busy girl taking down all the wallpaper inside. Steaming it is a slow process. They have a great view out the front of the house ... across the valley and the mountains. The previous owners told them that on the 4th of July all they have to do is put their chairs out in front and they can see the fireworks! Cool. I didn't get a good picture of their view because of all the smoke in the air. Couldn't see through it!
This from a high school friend, retired LA Co Fireman..(most likely from his wife Tally!) But, good to know... Life saving instructions:
I'm still giggling! Thanks Tally!

I looked out back yesterday and there were 6 deer! They were happily munching on the grass ....
... see, why I don't have to mow back there!
Then Maggie started barking. I didn't see anything until all of a sudden there were three dogs at the front and they were all sniffing Maggie through the fence! I went out and they were all sweet and friendly. Now what? I couldn't corral them in the yard because Animal Control doesn't work on Sunday. Only one, the black dog, had a collar but no tag. Grrrrrrrr..... I wanted to do something, but really didn't know what. They eventually, after drinking water, left up towards the pond and possibly where they live. I pray they got home ok. I was a worried mess. Beautiful dogs.
All I know. Nuff said. Ciao.
