One day while having afternoon tea, we decided that this really was the “good life.” “We could live here,” one of us declared. “Chat with friends in the morning. Work a little and then head off for scones and afternoon tea.” Reality, however, always has a way of catching up, and we began to wonder how we would do simple things like pay all the bills that were sure to stack up as a result of our riotous living! (smile)

We also wondered how we would stave off the weight gain that was sure to come as a result of over indulgence.

So, we packed up our misguided dreams and walked down the lane to a store that had both fruit and flowers. There the offerings appeared good for the soul and much better for the “bodies.”
