Before leaving for my trip to Maine, I reminded the Pres to water the houseplants, the hanging baskets in the yard and to fill the bird feeders.
However, since I didn't trust him to care for Alva, and didn't want to overwhelm him with tasks, I gave Alva her haircut earlier than normal this year.

just seeing, saying, and sharing...
