Phil & Sheila are here for a visit. They wanted to ride bicycles on a trail about two hours away. When not riding they've been bitten by the blackberry bug and are out picking - each boasting about the great picking spots they've discovered. Indy has gotten a little strange in her old age (don't we all). She used to be up for a walk w/ anyone who was going out. However, last summer she started refusing to go out w/ anyone on a walk unless I'm along. Not sure why the change, she seems her usual self when we walk. Anyway, means Phil and Sheila have to brave any bear (that might also be picking berries) on their own. So far so good - no bear, just poop.
