Rinse and repeat


I know I've said this a few (hundred) times over the years but ooooh, pretty.

There is nothing the little border collie would rather do than to chase and catch (and chase and catch and, well, you get it) the ball.

Here in New Mexico, far from SoCal's Ridiculously Resilient Ridge, we have rain (and rainbows) :

not just rain -- a rainbow too.

And nights so cool that autumn leaves are changing color.

Vertical photos are always a challenge for the horizontally-minded blog but for the palms at Malibu Seafood, there was no other way to go.
