"You know, he was always like a fish out of water around her...poor Lumpers, never mind, I says, plenty more fish in the sea, plenty more."

From my sketch book
"Quicksand!" panicked George before he went floundering in the shallow water. Luckily, I had brought a change of clothes. Unfortunately, they were in the trunk of the car, at the top of the stairs, some 473 steps way above us.
In front of the museum was a table set up with a glass container filled with water insects around which clustered a group of twenty kids. This did not include George and Paul. The leader then explained that they would be passing out little nets for hunting insects in the pond nearby. Unfortunately, she had only 12 nets, and these were snatched up fast by 12 kids. This did not include George and Paul.
When we got back home, we played a game of sardines, but it wasn't much fun with only the three of us. Finally at 4 o'clock, I let them play Wii. And the day was salvaged.
