What I learned on my summer vacation...

You can improve the almost perfect bliss of time in a hammock with a little push from a friend.

Every vegetable (other than mushrooms) tastes better when stuck on a skewer and grilled.

I will never be a vegetarian as long as Dick is willing to do chicken on the grill.

Cooking is fun on vacation (notice the theme here).

It's worth staying up late every night to watch the unbelievable athletes at the Olympics.

Nobody toasts a marshmallow as well as Dick.

Life is wonderdous without e-mail and the Internet for 2 weeks!

Always make sure you've packed your OXO grabber because you will need it more than you can possibly realize.

Nothing is better on vacation than a big pile of books and all the time you need to read them. Reading in a hammock just makes them even better. Fluff and summer beach books are required fillers as well.

Only read the scary books during the daylight hours.

It's worth taking the cats even if the little one doesn't travel well. Don't ask...

Remember that just because you found your favorite linen pants which have been missing all summer, doesn't mean you can wear them every day of vacation to make up for it. Even though I would have liked to...

Nothing, absolutely nothing restores the body and soul like sunshine, sand, a big body of water and the sound of waves shared with your favorite person.

It was the perfect vacation!
