Sure, we try hard to be as health conscious as possible, but when Audrey and I get together, cocktails abound (thankfully, Audrey is 2000 miles away, so our martini abuse is not so frequent).

At the end of the summer, I sent two of my sons and our moose sized dog Dutch, down the lane to pick blackberries. An hour later they returned, almost empty handed, with just a pitiful pile of berries tumbling around the bottom of their bowl.
