Every evening this is the game that is played between Arlo & The Bearded One. Arlo really thinks that he needs to pre-wash all the dishes that are being loaded in the dishwasher. The Bearded One thinks otherwise. He will chase Arlo out of the kitchen but Arlo simply loops around the island and comes back in behind his back. When he's really emboldened he actually climbs into the dishwasher. The Bearded One will turn back to the dishwasher and chase Arlo out. And so the game goes, every night.
And, for those of you still awaiting spring, here's a little bit for your enjoyment. This is my little flowering plum tree. The 74 degree weather last weekend has encouraged everything to burst into bloom. As much as I love spring, it doesn't like me. My allergies have gone haywire.
