Our grandson Max celebrates his ninth birthday in Memphis. I think this is the first year we've missed being there. He and his parents are coming to Richmond toward the end of the month and there will be a second celebration then.

This is sad ... not the dogs drinking water; it was an unseasonably hot day ... but we are at Arts in the Park, a spectacular annual outdoor show in Byrd Park — we usually miss it because we're in Memphis for Max's birthday — and this is the only photograph I shoot.

Once again Sadie patiently waits for me to finish this blog so she can go the bed.
