Lookin' out my front door....

Vela Von is digging it……..

The Little House ain’t been around long but a routine is already being established.  Routines are comforting. I drug up an old red plastic chair that has been sun bleached to a dusty pink and it sits in the corner of the 6′ porch. Every evening about dusk we grab a coupla cold beers and head for the front  porch.  The beers go in two mis-matched coozies and I set ’em on the porch railing and I rear back in that cheap chair and get comfy.  Vela Von alternates between doin’ dog stuff out in
