the lobelia are still blooming in the upstairs hall window box

I wish to believe in immortality - I wish to live with you forever

John Keats

The cowboy has been cooking me dinners. I spend a good part of each day and evening with mad teak topped Empire building and after our 3pm walk in the afternoon sun avec les chiens, and after I've had my tea. I go home.

I come home to this old brick house and before I know it there he is again, coming in our front door with the beautiful brown hound and an old wooden wine box containing a moveable feast. He's prepared our meal in his own kitchen, packed it up and driven it the 5 min. drive across the bridge to my house. I've set the table for two in my beautiful new spare dining room. Winnie lies smiling at us from the sofa and Miss Piper Bell and the beautiful Bess continue their endless gnashing and spinning, nipping and tumbling play while the cowboy and I eat and talk and smile and laugh ....

  11. OMG I'm totally in love with you both and your doggies and your moveable feast and your five minute bridge drive and all the conversation and laughter. Did you know that your actual happiness radiates all the way around the world? Cause I can feel it right here, right now. Blessings, Susan.
