Drinking Alcohol taught me how to fly
Then it took away the sky....

That ANYBODY might find interesting what an 82-yr old man fixes himself for breakfast I cannot imagine. But it is the only significant activity of mine so far today--EXCEPT I loaded up a new computer with WINDOWS 10.

Into mixing glass: half frozen banana, part of peach, little handfuls of raspberries, blueberries...OH! and three strawberries for flavor. ON TOP of all that I sprinkle my "secret diet" ingredient--OKAY, SINCE YOU ASKED: Chocolate flavored Medifast powder. This...EVERY morning and night. LOTS of water throughout day, Brand Name of water FOLGERS--grin!

NOW gotta get out and mow some grass, pull some weeds, install some (about 40) apps on my new "baby" HP, get to an 8 PM meeting at St. John's tonight

It's a SHAME we retired folks have nothing to do all day. Hmmmm!

PEACE and LOVE, Peeps

Upon Meeting a Friend

Heard an old (well, young!) friend was visiting in Weston, FL this week, so I rode over and lunched with him, his lovely young wife and two growing sons. . SO MUCH FUN! The meeting validated my belief that a good friend is one with whom there had been no communication for three years--and yet, when we met, it was as if we had been living next door to each other for these thousand days. Brian Miller is an amazing poet, writer and general wit--met him as a blogging mate about 6-7 years ago.

Thank You, God...for allowing me the joy to see again a family (two sons) grow in style, grace, and love. I was their house guest twice in Lynchburg VA (Home of the FABULOUS Liberty University!)

Image below is of two friends meeting, noticing how each have changed--grin!

SOMETIMES, like a good book
Things are not as they look...

I learn to act nice
observe scene twice

admit what I "saw" was mistook.
