This all hinges on a beloved friend from Canada's visit. They are our age and riders too. Also homebodies these days like us and going through the same medical aging people thing :I They do spit off and about more than us though. I've literally been watching the grass grow with all the dirt hauled and apread plus the seed planted and hand still out :/ So if they do make it down and we go to New Orleans for a few days and we will book for a week in the caribbean. If not...I'll just book a 2 week excursion and catch NO another time.

As for song to post and that's been on my mind...Amazing Grace sung to the tune of House of the Rising Sun (this version but also Sons of Anarchy version by White Buffalo). Somehow I know I did win and life has been a bit back to normal these days so in the spirit of when I used to sail in the New Orleans regattas for New Orleans Yacht club against Southern (and whoa the champagne flowed because we were a diligent, tough, and motley crew! A chemist, lawyer, judge, roving somebody, and me! My light weight and ability to pack and fly the spinnaker was my strong point ;)) aboard the Bura liava (Latvian for 'sailboat' owned by Refuged Lativian Chemist who married a friends father and taught me to skipper an auxillary craft)...I'm just rolling with "Charlie Brown" though because 'Southrn Cross' recordings aren't so good). No Sunday services last week but book of Sirach's chapter (Catholic Bible) on Health for the Body and Soul read for a member of the Sons of Silence who passed and the remainder of us who were once succumbed by this, that, or the other. Stress does affect health.
Speaking of health...lots of appts. next week. New General Physician in particular and I'm relieved the secretaries kept messing up and telling me I didn't make an appt. with the local town doctor when I would show up for it :/ Everyone kept telling me not to reschedule because he is cranky, mean, etc. And after seeing him milk the empty bottles in front of him at the restaurant this week, it is just a blessing I'm not paying to go through stupid to get to asshole! (takes one to know one :I). That's like stepping in crap and dragging it with you :/
So a glass of wine to Richard (French pronunciation ~Reeeshard~), daughter's journey, growing grass, lossing ass, awakened muscle in my hand, and hell....finally fast internet! I couldn't open the bottle of beer but most things on the horizon are correct ;)
A Special Note of Congratulations. Paros's breeder in Greece retained a sister of his who had her first, well, puppy. One very special girl. Evi may not know how God blesses her in a special unique way but I see it. P was the only boy in her first litter. Her second brought about a solid white miracle and this one...a very special girl who will be strong willed because she will not be encumbered by the stress brought about by other siblings. The lucky, sacred, spoilt only child ;) (Photo here of Ice sent by her owner/breeder in the seas surrounding Greece. I photoshopped the lead out and was going to do something with this for her but forgot :l). I also had to post a joke found on FB here. Author unknown :l
