Little d played a clever game of backgammon with just enough derring-do and luck to beat me by one solitary blot. I enjoy the close ones and don't mind losing a hard fought, close battle. And then all three of us coconuts, at the urging of the youngest charmer, went for a walk where we collected yesterday's mail. Now I'm settling down to read When You Are Engulfed In Flames by David Sedaris with a Jack & Coke at the ready.
“If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy.”—Dorothy Parker
