Lake Day

This is the second year I have worked for Fortune and for my sainted boss Jim Deavours. Every year Jim invites all his employees and their families (even their dogs, but Trumpet had a previous engagement) for a day on the lake. Jim and his fiancee, Mariola, wait on us hand and foot, spoil us with wonderful gourmet food, and keep the beer and wine flowing on their 88 foot double decker house boat.

We set out from his dock and cruise across Lake Lanier to this island that has about 5 miles of shore line. The kids go ashore and fish, dig in the sand, and swim. The grown ups eat and drink and ride the jet skies. It's great.

Here's Muscle Man Mark and the boys cooling off in the water after they went exploring. We didn't see any, but were told that there are deer on the island! Mariola said she's seen them swimming across the lake from one small island to another. Who knew?

Conn loves affection.

Mark grinning and bearing it.

Yes, that is a widescreen plasma TV on the bow. Oh, and there's the lake.

I fear the boys are teetering on teenage, check the 'tudes.
Well, that's the news from Lake Woebegone. Love to all of you. xoxoxxoxo
