Hello young bloggers, wherever you are. First, thanks to Melissa for guiding us back into the main lane of electronic communication short of the literacy and finger-challenging realm of twitter. Also to Rebecca for prodding me to continue the blog.
Our attitude(s) is good and our health(s) is as good as exercise, pills, chronic dieting and metamucil permits. What distresses us is the politics of incipient socialism, the economy and transporting mountains of data from the pc's to the new Apple. What joys us is hearing from and keeping up with our gene sharing families which continue to expand with boundless enthusiasm and optimism.
Jean put on a surprise (really) 85th BD party for me on tax day with most of our friends of the past, and the Florida families attending. What an exciting event. Upstaged by this extravaganza it seemed anticlimactic for me to have planned an elegant weekend for Jean and I at the Ritz-Carlton at Amelia for Jean' s BD three days later. We walked on the beach a lot, and it was just fun.
We are rapidly closing in on our trip with Lindblad to circumnavigate the British Isles. Takes some serious planning since we fly back directly to SLC and Alta from London. We leave on 27 May.
I hope the Apple is worth all this trouble!
