In case you were wondering...

Yes, we do play water polo in the rain in San Diego. But with fewer spectators! Actually, most of our pools are outdoors. When I wrote I So Don't Do Mysteries, I did a lot of the plotting while swimming laps at our local YMCA. During the winter months, I had to knock frost off the kickboard before jumping in!

A thank-you note arrived in yesterday's mail.

It's from Child #3 and was written at the orthodontist's office, no doubt under some sort of duress. Still, I appreciated it greatly. Not shown is the photo of Child #3 sporting a big wireless grin!

On Friday morning, Child #4 and I are leaving on a last-minute trip for a whole week! "But, Barrie," you say, "you just got back from Kansas." Mr. Summy's words exactly!

You are brave! I hope that pool is heated when it's frosty out!

Hah! Love the card. :-)

Very nice card.

You know I have never been to a water polo game in good or bad weather. It looks like fun.

We had lightening up here; I hope you don't play water polo in thunderstorms.

Have fun on your mother-daughter week off!!

Poor Mr. Summy!

Hey Barrie, love the new (to me) look (I know, I have been busy with baby #3 and haven't been reading much). Hope all is well with you. Love the note from Child #3, I mean you did spend all that money :)
