Eighteen Months Nomadic

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
