Book group

My wife had her book group over today, to discuss The Whalebone Theatre, while I took the girls over to a neighbour to cook hot dogs over a fire. It’s May now, possibly the last chance while the weather is warm enough to cook outside, but not so hot that there’s a statewide ban on open flames.

We got back, I read them half a chapter of The Lord Of The Rings, La Serpiente passed out cold and Destroyer wriggled for an hour or so before cooking out, so I got to go down just as the book group were departing, and then sat around for a few hours, tired and unable to rid myself of the twin tastes of woodsmoke and vegetarian sausages. It’s a good life if you don’t weaken…
