it's been a hectic summer all around. Alec went to military college, we are trying to sell our house and in the meantime have purchased our dream property. Not to mention riding and showing Irish. I think I need to retire just to do all the stuff I want to do, except that I can't afford too. Oh well. Work is good too. Ed and I managed to go out sailing with another couple one glorious sunday afternoon. Our philosophy is that we don't need a boat (we wouldn't know what to do with one anyway) we just need to know people with boats :).
