Open House


Welcome - c'mon in! So glad you made it! How was traffic?

I'm so glad Mrs. G suggested you drop by. Let me show you around. Come on in the living room where it's comfy. Don't mind Mr. Lumpy, he's friendly. Yes, I know it looks like we color- coordinated the floor runner and the wall, but really, that's not a rug, it's a yoga mat we put down to make it easier for Mr. Lumpy to get around on the wood floors at his age.

The couch is comfy, and there's a nice red throw in case it gets chilly in the evening with all the windows open. That piece on the table behind the couch is a sculpture we bought from our friend Rick. I hung up that paper star lantern around Christmas, and haven't gotten around to taking it down yet.

Oh, the view. Yeah. That's what we love about this place.

We love the way the corner of the house looks out over the canyon like the prow of a ship.

You wanna go out on the deck for a better look?

There. I especially like it just as the sun is going down. You can see birds flying home to their nests and as dusk falls, you can see bats fluttering out in the sky, eating the bugs. This is a place where you can just breathe easy. It's pleasant, isn't it?

How about a drink?

OK, I'll be over in about...45 minutes. I'd much rather be at your place than Chuck E. Cheese at 4pm!

Love that Mr. Lumpy!
