Those of you who know us are aware that we have a dog door to the backyard. We also have some oleander bushes and a tree that sheds acorns. Kato has been sampling the leaves from the bushes and acorns from the trees. Thus, while the boys were at the beauty parlor, we fenced off the backyard to limit them to the west side of the house.

The last time Kathy and I journeyed to Mount Lemmon was Memorial Day weekend 2004 when Pam and Mike came to visit. Three days later a massive

The Mount Lemmon General Store survived the blaze.
