Breakfast and Brits

    We went out for breakfast this morning...something we haven't done for ages. It was lovely and warm, so we sat out on the terrace. (In December?!? Yes...) And wouldn't you know it -- while helping myself to a glass of juice from the buffet:

His gout kicks up whenever we have drastic weather move in...and his fingers are aching, poor guy. Cherry juice helps. So does a long rub by yours truly. But I still feel terrible when I watch him aching like this.

Besides, it sounds so much more intriguing with an English accent.
