Yesterday morning friends Pat Reardon (LASD ret) and his bride Alice arrived for a very short visit. They were on their way back home to Washington state. We had a nice but short visit. While standing in the yard I spotted this winged creature...     

After some research, having never seen one of these before, I found out it was a silkmoth.

Here's Alice and Pat with Dude in the licking attack mode!

Yesterday was Tucker's baseball game. Here's a Smilebox of some highlights.
