I’m back!  We spent the weekend at Ben’s parents’ place on Howe Island.  The dogs had a great time, we ate and drank a lot, went on a long boat ride and got totally burned to a crisp.  (Seriously, I think I’m going to get wrinkles about ten years earlier than I would otherwise.)

I had a dream last night that I was offered a part in an opera that paid $50,000 (!).  Then I got fired at the first rehearsal for looking too masculine (the part had some kind of cross-dressing angle) and I hung around, hoping my replacement would literally break her legs and they’d have to bring me back.
