Wild and beautiful

Today a friend of ours, Larry Morkert, passed away. He’s been in fragile medical health for a long time, but as for the crisis that took his life on earth, it started after supper last night and ended this morning.

I don’t have lots to say. Sideswiped by this loss that of course we knew was coming. But not today, oh Lord, not today.

Retirement, Day 2

I am officially in my 2nd day of retirement. My how time flies when one is having fun...

I announced my retirement on Facebook; it’s been a kick how many people are saying celebratory things. Interesting that of all the things that divide Americans, we seem to all be on the same page about the glorious difference between getting up in the morning and going to work – and getting up in the morning to do whatever we think we want.
