I took Steve to my favorite “wandering aimlessly” place, downtown Mesa and the Antique Plaza yesterday afternoon.
If you can believe this, it was him who started that hat business.

Isn’t that amazing?
We had fun and I did get three very cool things for the Sedona house which I would show you but they are wrapped up in the back of my car to transport there next weekend. A wrought ironish wall hanging basket thing which I may use as a little bar or towel holder, a big trayish thing and a large wicker covered glass vase–oh none of this is making even remote sense. I’ll take pics when I unwrap it all because I love finding treasures in that two story Wonderland.
We also found these things:
Those two hours were really all I had to give yesterday. This grieving business is completely exhausting. I couldn’t wait to get home and get in my comfies and take a long nap.

And guess what was creating that shadow on the wall there?
I guess Buddy’s paying attention and playing along with us.
And I still want him back.
My Precious Darling Buddy
