I have neglected my writing, I admit. I have a great excuse: I was in South Africa for over a month and had no time to write. Now I am over the jet lag, I have weeded the garden, cleaned the house, done laundry numerous times and now, there can be no more excuses.
Outside, the sun is sparkling on the lake; it is late afternoon, early Fall and the temperature is nearly 84 degrees. It is pleasantly humid. The dogs are barking at some fishermen who are trying to catch something just off our dock. Their voices and laughter drift up to the house. It sounds as if the fishing expedition was more of a beer drinking excursion since they have lapsed into singing some bawdy shanty…
It has silenced the dogs and I can hear their voices again.
Monday afternoon, October 13th. Great day to be fishing.
In the meantime, here is a picture of a baby elephant I took while visiting Addo National Park.
