Thanksgiving Leftovers

It's been ages since I've written anything here. I've been a little busy, a little tired, a little challenged at getting any computer time here and I really haven't had anything to say of any importance. Guess it's just one of those down cycles.

Tomorrow it's back to work after a week of vacation. It felt good to have absolutely nothing on the agenda for a change. The greatest accomplishment of the week was getting new tires for the Explorer. But considering what December is going to be like, I"m glad that I had the time off to relax. By the time the Christmas tree has been removed from the house I will have been to Chicago and back for a concert that Bailey is playing in and will have skied my butt off in Colorado thru New Years Day.

Thanksgiving Day was truly a time to be thankful and to reflect on how lucky I am to have been born in this day and age. However, this year it was tinged with sadness. We found out that evening that my father-in-law's brother Asa had died. As Irving said later, it was time Asa to go since he was in so much pain, but that it was hard for him to let him go.

On a more upbeat note, we got to have dinner with Daniel's wife, Maeci. It was so long ago when I was like those two, crazy in love and looking forward to the next time that they would be together. Of course, I wasn't fighting a war in the Middle East, but I do know the feeling. It was nice to see the light still burning in her eyes.

So my week off from work ended on the most glorious fall day. Not a cloud in the sky, winds light. The perfect day to take Bailey down to the club to have her run her old man around a bit on the tennis court. Six courts, and not a soul in sight other than us! I wish every day could be spent that way....
