Ice laces the edge of Roadford Lake, it breaks like sugar glass as Dog pads through. Little Granddaughter sparks giggles.
This is how she shares the joke with us. Boy is trying to photograph still water but no one can be cross.
Boy has the smile of the gracefully defeated. There's a tail wagging, a child laughing, a warm sun in a clear sky.
Girl has sunglasses big enough to reflect the lake. Everyone tries on my hat, my candid heavenly-blue hat.


  1. Love the hat; so bold and cheery!

  2. It is a fabulous hat. Little Granddaughter also persuaded the dog to wear it- luckily the mud brushed off!

  3. Lils, my daughter would die for that Elysian hat.
