I safely returned from a trip to Long Island where I encountered tailgaters, road rage ( I may have exhibited some myself) a burglar, hockey, shopping, movies and the love of friends and family. Whew. Quite an adventure. Now I am back home where I only need to think about bears and coyotes when I want to soak in the hot tub. Oh yes, since we leave in two weeks, we are dealing with getting things in order here planning for the 300 meals we will make and eat on Deal Island. Right now, setting up some sort of internet is the priority. We have time until we have to actually shop for our food. Then we only have to beware of timid, venomous white lipped snakes and a variety of skinks. But does a snake have lips??
