lorieonthelake @ : Summer 2006
OK, everyone ("everyone" being Beth) -- here's a place to plan ahead for this August's drinking, swimming, pyromania, etc.
Not having a lake in my yard sucks!
Yesterday I was feeling kind of crappy and headachey and when I was half awake I had the thought that going for a swim in the lake would help me feel better. And then I remembered that I didn't have a lake in my back yard and that sucked. Well at least there is football to ease the pain.
Hey - can you please tell Don that that was definitely a loon we saw. I really thought it was a mallard cause it would just not dive! I can't believe a loon let us get that close.
Hope the shock of reality hasn't been too stressful for you guys.
Yes, I miss the lake, too.
But, hey, on a completely different topic: Have you ever wanted to be a stage mother? Beverly Theater is doing "Frankenstein" and they're looking for a little dog who can be taken on stage on a leash, picked up, and carried off. I figured Siggy might not be too happy about that, but is your other dog interested?
My tan (such as it was) is fading and I'm cranky about the weather, too. We've got to find a way to get up there more often, I think. Or to make summer last two more months.
Re: Yes, I miss the lake, too.
I don't either of my dogs would be an acceptable choice. Siggy might do it if Rusty or I were the walkers but Rocky would stop to either a) bark at the audience or b) eat any props inadvertantly left on stage or c) bite anyone he didn't know.
yes, the color is fading except on my stupid legs where I burned the sh*t (apparently swearing online is troublesome but not in person) out of them. And oddly enough, it still hurts like hell!
Funny you should say 2 months. I told Rusty I thought we should stay for 2 months to really truly feel it. It looks like we might go up to snow-mobile but I think the lake might be a tad cold. Even for Rich and I.
