The weather here is perfect today, mid 60's. Such a tonic. Today we are having a BBQ for some friends and neighbours that I have met before. I'm really looking forward to meeting them all again. They are such nice genuine people and great company.
Yesterday we spent quietly, just talking, watching TV and going out to lunch at the Olive Garden. I now feel rested and in harmony with the world. The only thing missing is Davy. He loved visiting Jack and Betsy so much and we have been remembering previous visits with fond memories.
The only cloud on the horizon is the pending BA strike. Will I get back home again in time to go on my next trip? That is the question.
