The handing over of animals is usually a production, with the frantic dash -- "wait-wait!" -- through the house by my daughter finding just the right choice for the ride.
Today was different, when I got to work and opened my bags I found Red and Apple Pear staring up at me -- stow aways! We had a little chat and they sat next to me until afternoon coffee. On the way back a quick detour took us to Seattle's famous Pioneer Square so the two friends could hang out. Look Ma, blue skies!
