Los Ranchos

Home, Sweet Home.
And I'm always open to the idea of leaving.

View from my bench most mornings - with a sketchbook and a cup of coffee. 
Cleo waits in a warm spot for us to return.

The house is an old adobe, so shelves are hung from the wooden ceilings.

All the doorways are low. Stan has to duck. He doesn't always make it.

It's an excellent kitchen for cooking. Even if it's small.

We're not far from old Route 66. Lots of old style architecture here.

Stan's "garden sculpture" in the back. Home for found objects and old tools.

"And when the snow comes falling down, I get the urge for going..."
- Joni Mitchell

Cleo doesn't venture too far from home.

And now...we have a new "home". 
On a boat! Maggie May.
