Alone with Nature

“Loretta, where’s Jim?”

“Up at the cabin.”

“How come you didn’t go with him?”

“I didn’t feel like going.”

“You mean he didn’t ask you to go.”

“I never liked going up there, anyway.  It’s too remote.  I never felt safe.  And there’s not much to do except go for walks or paddle in the river.  I’d much rather stay here in the comfort of our home.”


“I wonder what he’s doing right now.”

Jim stared at the eagle.  “I wonder what my wife is doing now.  Probably telling her sister, Joan about how much she dislikes coming here.”

    1. Hi Dora,
      It’s interesting that one commentator thought that they were a perfect couple and others thought that sometimes separate vacations are beneficial. It is possible that he would have liked her to be there at the cottage with him and she would have preferred to have him home with her. Maybe they will talk about it when he returns home.
