May 14 – This lovely hummingbird feeder was awaiting me when I returned, a birthday gift from Gen.  It moves gently in the wind.  My biggest hope is that I have it up high enough that the bear (whom we’ve not seen sign of thus far) cannot get it.

Bringing Dory into the family as a companion for Hobie is a success.  Normally after we got home from a run Hobie would be frantic with the need to touch us and talk to us to the point where we could hardly stand it.  Meowmeowmeowmeow for days!   When we got home yesterday he came from where he was sleeping and said “hey” (in cattish, of course) and that was it.  No frantic lap time or meowing.  Just hey and on with the day.  Success!!!
