I hate to name names..........

...but this morning I was perusing an older edition of a local home & garden magazine and found an article about a friend of a friend. Actually it was about their house, but that's neither here nor there. What stands out about this article (and no dispersions are cast on the family, just the magazine) is the repeated mention of the wonderful coy pond, not be confused with its close cousin, the koi pond.

Now, what does a pond have to do to be considered coy? There are no eyes therefore no winking is involved. Does the pond promise good fishing but never deliver? Does it stare at you with a slight smirk? Is it like a horrible combination of after-school special and cartoon where you go down to the pond to jump in only to discover that the water is only painted on the ground and you are now paralyzed from the neck down?

Okay, okay, that was a bit much but more to the point, how did this glaring error get past the copy editors? And it was repeated several times!

AdiĆ³s 'til next year!
