Posted by F&S

This past weekend, Martha took us to our home in East Hampton, where there is always so much to see and do.  One of our favorite pastimes is to take long walks on the beach, except that this year, there is a real problem with the beaches.  We hope they can figure out how to …

While we were in Maine, we took a little drive to Bar Harbor, that quaint and famous summer community on Mount Desert Island.  There are so many fun stores to window shop and plenty of good aromas coming from all of the restaurants.  And because it is a harbor, there is much to see on …

This week was the big move of Martha’s tropical plants to Skylands so that the urns on the big terrace could all be planted.  We Frenchies usually make this road trip with Uncle Carlos, but this time, it was G.K. who got to travel with him, while we flew the next day with Martha.  We …

Now that Francesca’s eye is better, I wanted to take her around the farm so she could see some changes going on.  She was sort of out of commission for a few weeks and missed a lot.  Now it’s catch up time!

Well, it’s been quite a long ordeal, but I finally had that blasted button removed and my eye is now wide open and all healed.  I was taken to the veterinarian last Friday, but a small and unexpected problem was encountered.  I just hope I never get another corneal ulcer!
