Are you still there?
Yup, we're still here.
We've been away from blogville for a little while because we had company. From away. That is how everyone here refers to people who aren't from the island. They are from away. Our company has now gone back west and things are back to what we call normal.
Normal meaning that the dogs are now the number one priority and getting all the attention once again which includes going to the beach at sunset.
