You would have thought she had been here forever! Notice new collar and perhaps new name. MOLLY that seems to suit her more. I am writing as usual and just been out for a walk in the rain, she flopped down at my side. She is worn out, half an hour along the sea front. Wet too, how I missed that wet dog smell.
For those of you who don't know - Brian is in UK, visiting Louise, Jo Ann and Simon. Doing some serious English country things. I am keeping up with the novel having sorted out the chapters and now added more, thank goodness.
It has rained and stormed here for three days now, the poor tourists are a bit fed up. Including Dennis and June. Oh well. I am busy anyway.

She looks very sad, but I can assure you she isn't. She likes to sit here and licks the wooden face... takes all sorts. She had had four walks today so far. Now keeps to my legs and doesn't pull and likes the lift too, although she stays like a statue while in it, but don't we all.
Would you believe we have been offered a six month house-sit in Scotland looking after a boxer dog while they try out Spain. Well, fancy that. Good on you Venus, saved us from the snow.
I am getting her checked out this week and seeing if anything is wrong with her. She was maltreated by someone here and left tied up. She has only had one week of freedom. Poor thing. We will see what happens with the vet and go from there. She is 2 -6 years old, who knows? I think she has had puppies in the early summer. She isn't having any more!
By the way, Brian is over the moon, that is why she is called Venus. He can't wait to come back and start walkies... No her name was Tina, hate it. Any other suggestions email me.
ps Sandy said we most prob will call her Vino but me thinks not. She is sitting at my feet watching me do this. I hope she does that when I start writing again manana.
A damp morning cup of tea

This is the house Brian stayed in at Herstmonceux, East Sussex while evacuated during the war for a year. He found the house easily even though we had tried ages ago. It was a farm then and still is although smaller.
He went to the Chapel with Doreen and Bernard and found the graves of the couple he stayed with as well as the grave of their daughter, Dorothy, who was three years older than him, seems she died a few years ago. Very nostalgic day.
We went past the house Doreen went to, they didn't stay together - and on the way back home, the next day, Doreen knocked on the door and the same girl was there - aged another 60 years... Hows about that? She made them tea and they shared memories.
He is really concentrating here, oh yes, it was about...??? Oh what was her name? The people in the house where Brian was were very helpful and friendly. We didn't go with Doreen to her house. Shame.
But we did have a rather nice pub lunch in the village. OK it is sunny, but it poured about half an hour later.
An hour break from the rain gave us time to visit the local library and museum, this is the teashop and of course hot chocolate and cake for all.
I don't know where the ducks are...
In the Wendy house... not their front door...
Oh no not another sleep suit!
Lovely sunny day, forgot about this one, although not in Brighton... So there were three sunny days after all.
Super bbq, and good to see Babs again (Becky's mum)
