Yes, I have hardly been blogging: the unintended semi-hiatus is because I have been swamped at work, a situation that will continue through the end of the year. I also did not attend a single performance in July, because I have no Music@Menlo tickets and SFS's offerings just now....well, not for me.
Also, this handsome girl came to live with us three weeks or so ago, and training her has been taking up a lot of time when I'm not at work:
Her name's Lila and she came from the Oakland Animal Shelter even though we'd planned to get a cat-friendly dog from a rescue group. We think she is some kind of shepherd/hound mix. Some part of her, often her tail, is moving in most of the photos I've taken of her. More photos of her here and here.
