Currently, we are wildly busy trailing after our five year-old granddaughter, Thea. She and my daughter Kristiana are staying with us here on Alligator Creek for the five weeks. It's wonderful. We spend a lot of time at the beach. We all love it and it's the best place to get the wiggles out. Thea adores the water, won't even come out long enough to eat her sandwich at lunchtime. She and Grandpa eat standing in the waves. I swear she's half fish and he's 3/4s kid. Ok. Gotta go.
Unfortunately, these very special moments and days are tumbling by mostly unrecorded. I don't even get around to posting photos. I sit down at night, when there's finally a little time to write about the day, then suddenly wake up, disoriented, groggy, my laptop gone dark and me dreadfully tired. At that point all I can do is go to bed. I wish it were otherwise. I know I'll regret it but I just can't catch up with it.
