Our week at the Cape was wonderful! Mike and I haven’t stopped talking about it since we’ve been home. The location and the atmosphere was just what we were hoping for. We especially appreciated the well stocked and cared for town home and the great views from all 3 gulf front decks. The pet friendly accommodations and beaches allowed us to bring our border collie, Riley, with us and he is now officially a “beach dog”. He dug for crabs in the sand, fished with Mike and “herded” the waves all week. He was hilarious to watch and Mike and I realized, in lou of sheep, living at the beach may be the next best thing for Riley!!!! And us too….
Mohammad, a boy at Tehran's institute for the blind, waits for his dad to pick him up for summer vacation. While waiting, he realizes a baby bird has fallen from its nest: he chases away a cat, finds the bird, climbs a tree, and puts it back. His father finally comes and takes him to their village where his sisters and granny await. The lad is a loving student of nature and longs for village life with his family, but his father is ashamed of him, wanting to farm the boy out to clear the way for marriage to a woman who knows nothing of this son. Over granny's objections, dad apprentices Mohammad far from home to a blind carpenter. Can anything bring father and son together? Written by <jhailey@>
