While the hygenist scratched away at my teeth, I watched through the window as the wind blew this tree around in the afternoon sunlight. Like a Christmas tree, when it's all over, losing it's decorations, one by one.
All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.

Well, I'm home...back from my trip to Colorado and here I am posting the very last photo I took. This was taken from the kitchen window of our cabin in Big Bear. The first time I'd seen rain since I left California, two weeks earlier. Thanks to the terrible drought, much of Colorado was looking like high desert with so much sage popping up where tall green grass usually grows. I just hope that the jet stream sent this much needed moisture east to my second favorite state.
