Topics of conversation:
The Artist had her first swim of the year. Most of us were already in the water when she arrived and didn't realise that she intended to swim, but once I saw her stripping off we raised cheers and whoops. We went back to meet her and guided her to the warmth of the shallow pool where she would be close to the changing area and could languish with her 'support', the banana. It was SO wonderful to have her back with us and the glow she immediately took on is proof that even if you've been stricken with ill health and new medication has been playing havoc with your immune system, there is nothing to compare with Dr. Sea! Oh, and she's 80 - just look at her! She's an inspiration. The LE sent me this image this morning, commenting that she looks as if she may be opening the local branch of MacDonald's  she just needs another banana. 
Sara and I met on the way to the beach as I was running without the dogs and had taken the marsh route, she was walking that way from her house and we stopped briefly to discuss our dog dramas, one of mine had been sick on the door mat, and Jess had crapped in the house. She's got an excuse, she's old and having a few senior moments recently (Jess, not Sara), but nonetheless, it's not a great way to start the day. 
DK is off 'down town' to a showbiz bash tomorrow, the 70th birthday party of his old mucka Robert Powell, he's always been my favourite Jesus.
