Tuesday with Leo
Pasadena, California: Since we appeared in
Pasadena one day early and most of our party shopping/errands have finished, we
volunteered to take Leo for a while this afternoon so his Mom could get a
rest... as much rest as a Mom with a four-month-old can find anyway. Before
taking Leo back to our RV, we sorted his animals (mostly) by continent of origin

except I am pretty sure Leo mostly had pie.
As we headed back to Lisa & Lenny's for dinner, it started to
rain and it is still raining. Not exactly Rose Bowl weather, but not too unusual
if you are a Duck.
We pooped him out.
Until my next update, I remain, your Rose Bowl correspondent.
