I've gone, shuffled off to share the Tart's blog - you'll find me there now, when she lets me near the computer...

Beach Blues




Greetings from sun soaked Chesters. Blimey, we've had a couple of weeks of warm dry weather and I have to say these [still young] bones will soak up any amount of sunshine given the chance. Nothing better after a walk or dinner than to flop down onto toasty warm earth and just r-e-l-a-x..... zzzzzzzzz
Hugh had a birthday this month so we all took off to the seaside. Not one of the brightest or warmest days, it must be said, but this did not deter us. I tried to introduce Midge to the pleasures of deep water but she wimped out whenever a wave approached. We were inevitably made to pose for photographs again even though I was soaking wet and Midge would rather have been sniffing along the high water mark.

A major highlight of the year happened just yesterday - Lindsay received all the way from South Africa this painting by this talented lady . L has been scheming to acquire one of Arty Farty's artworks for quite a while and when she spotted this one on her blog she knew that was it. Fortunately when it arrived and was unrolled (it's about 1m x 1.5m!) Hugh immediately said how much he liked it too. This means its allowed to grace the living room wall, as soon as he's made a frame to stretch it over. Posh, eh?

Look at your big girls...
Glad the package made it to you, and that you are enjoying. :-)

Lovely piece - I'm sure it'll look great in your living room.

hi, glad it got there intact! Look forward to finally visiting one day and seeing it in situ! Of course as our currency seems to get weaker by the minute, it might only be next year... but look forward to a romp on the beach with you then!

Hello - found your blog through Pamela Terry & Edward.
What a fun time your lovely labs had at the beach. We have an 11 1/2 year old black lab named Benny who loves the water too :-}
