White Dog barely made it through Richard's marinated berries and mango dessert because she was so tired! Adam returned late morning to continue his artistry on the fireplace and upon his heels came 3-year-old Tyler and his grandparents. Tyler is a non-stop whirlwind that dragged poor Steve all over the house to see all of the pets, and who "tortured" White Dog by bringing out all of her toys and trying to make her play with them. His "in-your-face" kid style intimidates her a little. Richard kindly came over to grill a wonderful dinner (with the help of sous chef Steve and major domo White Dog). Couscous surrounded by grilled veggies, and topped with both sea bass and basso made one's mouth water just from the smells. It was a quiet delightfully low-key evening but we were all in agreement when Richard took his leave early, saying he was really tired.
