I love seeing these photos of you and Rudder - and of your house as well :) It's always nice to put faces to people and see them in their 'natural environment' (for lack of better expression ;) )
If I have the time, I'll try to play around a bit more with my camera today too.
The colonial rocker/glider surprised me. From the other snaps of your place I've seen I got the impression of a mission/southwestern/arts-n-crafts intensely personal photo gallery-library. But then why shouldn't the odd colonial piece or two pop up at YOUR house, eh? You can take the girl out of Philly... ~LA (PS: Wolf says hello to your brother and wants him to know he (Wolf) is learning the harmonica and still covets the tiny one on a chain that your bro has.)
Ahh, book people, my favorite kind.
