I think that I've probably mentioned that I have problems following 'The Rules' at times. It probably explains why I fit in so well within a couple of days with the Greek drivers on Rhodes on our recent vacation - it was obvious that the driving rules were to be treated more as guidelines. My wife, to her credit, has kept me out of more trouble than I care to remember by being a more strict observer of 'The Rules'.
Today we found ourselves on a beautiful beach near Naples. I think I saw a sign with lots of rules, among which was the prohibition of animals on the beach. Now I don't consider Sasha an 'animal' - she's simply part of the family, so she accompanied us - well ok, me - onto the beach, despite my wife's protestations. We do clean up after her - I can understand keeping animals off the beach whose owners don't do that. Of course, who cleans up after all the pelicans, seagulls, and other flying bombs ? Right, I thought so. At any rate, we only walked along the beach for a little while - and if we hadn't, I wouldn't be able to show you just how nice that beach is.
