I hadn't been to the cottage all season and when I finally decide to surprise Jeffrey I find no sign of him. The place was a mess but I was happy to notice the printouts by his computer. His muse was back thank goodness because when he had writer's block he was a nightmare to live with. I was surprised to find the old telescope on the front porch trained on the new structure across the lake. And even more surprised to find Jeffrey and some stranger in the water. I was sad my son hadn't shared this with me.
