We spend last Sunday afternoon with my In laws, as we often do. We had another wonderful meal, plenty of wine, a perfect, sunny afternoon. We also had good conversation.

It’s been a few weeks now since our little family has expanded to include Jack, the Dog. Jack is still trying his very best to catch Newt. Newt is trying his very best to torture Jack.
