Thoughts On Interaction

I keep thinking I will get to this blog sooner. I hope that what I post is of interest anyway and keeps people thinking. Phoenix is cool this week, and I mean that as temp cool. Nice being in winter for a change- now in sixties and seventies. Dogs are loving the cooler temps and are amped for the park each day. Hope everyone had a good thanksgiving. Cheers.
