Our local beach is now open to dogs again and we are taking full advantage of this fact. Wendell hurls himself into the breaking waves with fearless abandon. It has rained solidly for two days and the three of us beach bums look like drowned rats by the time we get home. Wendell loves inclement weather; the worse, the better as far as he is concerned. He is such a plucky little chap.
It is money day today, which means shopping. This has become the high spot of my fortnight. Whilst learning to economise has been a valuable lesson, I feel I could do with a swing in fortune now. I could use a moment of wild extravagance! Still, I don’t suppose I am alone in thinking that. Oh well, we shall see. Take care, my friends, Pen.
