    What a lovely quote! The picture of the dogs on the boat are wonderful! Are they all yours? I’ve got some great pictures of our 6 dogs on our boat. They always make me laugh! Have a nice Summer Sunday.

      No, just a pack of hounds running around on someone’s dock, jumping on jet skis & I had my camera…they were having a blast & made us laugh too :-)

    Wow – I don’t know which one I like more – the butterfly/dragonfly one or the flowers! Both are really nice! I looked at all your books listed on the right and was amazed at either the number I read, or how many were on my “must read” list. Then I read your bio and saw that you hail from Charleston. I love that town! We visited there a few years ago and I just fell in love with that place. Your two dogs are adorable.
