Hey Charlie, I’m sure right now you are standing guard over our dock, keeping the seagulls away.
We’ll be up tomorrow, and this will be a big weekend for star/planet gazing. They tell us we’ll be able to spot Mars. Will you stand on that pier waiting for us, in the dark, like you did that one night when we were watching shooting stars? We barely knew you were there, so close to us, standing so majestically in the dark.
I wonder, has your little offspring made it over to our side of the lake yet? I love how his downey head, with his bold stripe, looks so much fluffier than yours. He stands proud, just like you. Are you teaching him about us?
You’re a good friend Charlie. Can’t wait to see you this weekend.
