In Flanders Fields
by John McCrae, May 1915
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

After pulling weeds and raking, we go for a swim before heading back home again. The past little while we have noticed something nibbling on us when we are swimming.

We rake, pick up plastic, pull weeds and move wood bits for about ninety minutes and then we go for a swim before heading home. It works for us!!!
Yesterday, we had a visitor in the field next door. It was an egret stalking something, probably frogs and I did see him get something. You don't see that every day.

First thing, was to put in an offer, which was countered and we made our final offer, which was accepted. Then it was just waiting for the paper work, but it has finally happened (in Belizean time) so all is good.

Today is your birthday. We have been through a lot together and just wanted to let you know that you are one of the best.
Without humour, life sucks;
Without courage, life is hard;
Without love, life is hopeless;
Without friends like you, life is impossible.
Thank you for being my friend, now have a GREAT BIRTHDAY!!!
Wish we were there!!

Really, that is the name of the drink!!!
Mayro makes a great Liquid Sunshine.
We had to go after round two, but while we were there, everyone had a great time.

We had to wait until the rain passed so we stayed for dinner...
