we lie around

on a rainy afternoon

listening to the radio

to hear

one of us

a first-time storyteller on npr

as she shares with the nation

her bittersweet tale

there are 11 people of all ages

4 dogs of all shapes

with all

the food, drinks, games


good cheer

we could possibly need

and no timeline or agenda

on this long lazy weekend

all tucked in together

in 1 cozy house

on 1 pretty lake

and all that


1 huge level of comfort.


it is one of the blessings of old friends

that you can afford to be stupid with them.

  1. Wow- that is one relaxed crew. I once saw a scene like that on Star Trek when the crew had been gassed by the enemy. Ha! Happy Labor Day Beth! (see I spelled labour as a n American would )

  2. I love that photo. It speaks volumes. Sounds like a perfect weekend. I and five close friends am off to Spain Thursday to Sunday. There will be much laughter, fun and relaxation all washed down with a few wines and fine food. We’ve all been through a lot over the past few years so hanging as friends will be perfect.
    Your post has really made me look forward to it.
