  23. Wow! Is that ever a nice reward at the end of a beautiful walk!!

    And on the post above -- sounds like you're gettng ready for the end of summer! Bill said the other day that (if he wasn't old and retired) it would be about time to think about summer's end and insrvice starting! (Now it's endless summer.)

    Seriously -- that does sound like an excellent book and I wish you a great school year! (And a great rest of the summer)
