a very serene time was had by all plus some sadness, too

This was supposed to post last I don't know how that thing to set it to post later than you write it goes. Anyway, I'm reposting this, because there were some issues with the pictures not wanting to transload and Melli was on vacation when it was posted....also, I was dog tired last night. And, Quilly, your comment did not get lost during the posting hassles. This blogging thing is very fun until there is a problem.

A couple of weeks ago we went to visit our was very rough at her palace.

We were so miserable that we couldn't stay long at was truly a paradise...and thoughts of Kubla Khan came to mind and hubby got sunburned

Today-we have just returned from a funeral of a long time friend. He and my husband used to work together at one aerospace place or the other. He and his wife were in a terrible car accident six weeks ago, and he finally succumbed to his injuries last Sunday. She was injured badly, too, but not to the extent he was. It really makes one stop to think how we spend time together without really cherishing the time we do have with each other. This visit at our daughter's home with my husband was a lovely get away and we will be able to go other places together again...unlike the widow we just left. God bless her in the coming days without him....and Godspeed, Jim, on your trip to heaven.


  1. Oh yes, I can see how staying there would be a horrible hardship. NOT!

    I'm glad you had a good time. May I sugest next time hubby try sunscreen?

  2. I can't even imagine what entices you to go visit your daughter... in that slum. Parental love makes us do strange things, doesn't it?

    Along Quilly's path -- SPF goes as high as SEVENTY now!!! The sun couldn't get through if it HAD to!
