The wek after

Last monday our son arrived from Colorado. His first visit in years. Health and other issues kept him from Port Angeles. He could not have rented a car at the airport and driven here because of the Hood Canal snafu. So he had to take a flight from Seattle to our-airport here. when I saw him getting off the little tiny plane I was amazed. He was thirty years younger looking than he was the last time I had seen him. He weighs no more than when he was in college, playing tennis every day. I don't think I am being unrealistic when I say, he is positively handsome. He is still suffering pain from an accident he had playing softball when he broke his clavicle and separated his shoulder.

His first night dinner had to be at a thai restaurant and it was a delicious meal. Next night we invited his neighbors and friends for dinner here at my place and we had again the Leg of Lamb I told you about before. Gilbert is diabetic and for dessert we had fresh pineapple mixed with strawberry sherbet with a little chocolate sauce dribbled over. And then last night the same neighbors had us over for a magnificent Taco dinner. This morning we are having breakfast at Gilbert's favorite place for such a meal. The Corner House Restaurant. I doubt he can eat half of what he usually orders.

I am hoping we will see some of the cross dressers who are having their yearly convention, beginning tomorrow. They are such an interesting group. And their choice of coming here every year is astounding. This is such a 'down home' community. There is also a Holland American Cruise ship in port. It is so large, it towers over the hole harbor area. It will bring back so many memories from my cruise around the world two years ago. ( I wish I had known about Suze Orman before I took that cruise for if I had asked her 'can I afford it' she would have said DENIED ) But I have memories that I love bringing up when I have a sleepless hour at night.

You can't take the money with you, but I'm willing to bet you CAN take the memories of those wonderful travels -- GOOD FOR YOU!

Thai food and cross-dressers. I wish my parents enjoyed a life half as interesting as yours. I love how you are always ready for life's next great adventure. You inspire me to try harder to be like you.

I love it that you like Thai food, pineapple and cross-dressers. That is the reason that I am here. You never cease to amaze.

Your blog is always a great source of fascination and enjoyment, and is one of my favorite places to visit on the internet. Thank you for your generosity in sharing your very interesting and inspiring life with us. Sadly I lost my own mom this past September and I still miss her terribly, so I hope you will take this in the most respectful way, but "Happy Mother's Day"! I hope your Mother's Day is as wonderful and special as you are!
