White Dog lay against Steve's left leg and Quinn sat under his right arm as they both shared bites of shredded beef tacos that Steve was divvying up. They had been cheated of their normal Sunday routine because the group had spent the day packing all of Michael and his mom's belongings and putting things into storage. His mom is having a hard time rebuilding herself and it looks like she will need long term care for at least 6 months; Michael will, of course stay with us but it seemed silly to keep an empty apartment for all of that time. The move was organized and went quickly. White Dog and The Other White Dog did not complain about missing the loading and unloading in the hot midday sun, instead sleeping in the cool breezes inside of the house. Afterward, the crew shared a New Mexican meal as a "thanks" ...guacamole, quesadillas, tamales, carnitas, chicken enchiladas, and sopapillas (with honey) combined perfectly with cervaza fria on a very warm (in spirit and in temperature) afternoon.
