On the way to San Jose we stopped off in Minden, NV to visit with Stubby and Darleen Dils. Stubby just finished a punishing period fighting cancer and was just deemed cancer free. His diet and routine has been thru a tube and it was rough. Still more recovery coming, but he looked good and was visiting and talking a lot duing our visit. Their home is out in the country and has a great view of the mountains.
Another view of the front of the house with a buzzard on a perch.
The newest addition to the family is Mickey.
