Iím tempted to stay on for a few days when my friend asks me to. Itís so pretty and quiet here, and Iím enjoying the company of my friend and her charming dogs. The seemingly endless noise of the construction site across the street, the heat and crowds of the city await me when I leave the lovely serenity of my friendís little house in her little town. But if I stay, Iíll have to join in at her familyís Fatherís Day celebration. I love her father, but I miss mine more. I canít go, so Iíll have to go.
