A surprise house guest appeared at my door day before yesterday. He's a recent immigrant to our shores from a former French colony. His entry was sponsored by our friends, the Geeks O'Nature of Bishop, CA. He makes a lovely house guest. He's very low maintenance, doesn't take up much room and his enthusiasm is infectious. He has told me some of his story and I'll share what I know so far with you. Here is his photo ID. His story will continue in "Comments." Click on photos for enlargement. And now you have to go to the last page first and move forward to get the story in chron order. Don't love that change, ning.
