Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

I'm going away for a while.  A vacation.  A trip I bought for myself as my 70th birthday present.  Today I fly to LA, then tomorrow to French Polynesia.  I look forward to seeing another part of the world.  And it will be sunny and warm.  I understand the language is French.  Good thing for me as I didn't do too well with the Spanish in January.  I'll see just how much French I remember.
On a sad note.  My friend in Tennessee is not doing well at all.  I'm hoping I don't get an email from my daughter that she has passed while I'm away.  We plan to go say goodbye when I get back.  Damn cancer!  Her daughter says she doesn't know how long it will be.  Unfortunately the husband, who has no short term memory whatsoever, is in good health so a decision is going to have to be made on what to do about him.  I truly believe that it won't be long before he just gives up since he won't know what to do without his wife.  They've been together for almost 55 years.  When she is gone I will miss her a lot.  She was a good friend and a good shoulder to cry on.

I'll be back in a while.  Since everyone has told me to have a good time...I will.  Y'all take care, stay out of tornados, stay healthy and remember:  not all who wander are lost.
