The Summer Adventures of the The Do-Good Brigade

Bitchy and Sassy have spent these summer days working at the golf course, serving meals at the retirement home, shopping, partying, and basically avoiding their family at all cost.

Golden Boy and the Do-Good Brigade have appointed me resident den-mother. I've tried to tell them that during the summer I'd rather not have ANY thing to do with children. They refuse to listen.

And so, we spend our evenings hiking to this incredible spot to cavort with my good friends' amazing dog - and try to catch the fish that we see shooting out of the water each night.







Some days I think I've died and gone to heaven.

I have to say, "yes, you HAVE died and gone to heaven"! What a great escape and the pictures are just beautiful. I'm totally jealous! Enjoy those kids, they grow-up way too fast.

Take care, Sue

And how, exactly are you trying to catch the jumping fish ? with nets ? holding out a pot ? arms open wide ?

It certainly looks a bit like Heaven from here ..
