Old pounds, new pounds

All the dog hair has been removed from the car – nearly all. I found a few stray ones to the great consternation of Andrew the car detailing man who had promised I would be totally satisfied.

While Andrew was detailing our car I visited a friend who hired me 25 years ago as a family planning counselor at Planned Parenthood. Our contact has been spotty but we never entirely lost sight of each other. Now her son is a Peace Corps Volunteer in Lesotho. It was fun looking over the map of Lesotho and hearing the stories about his new life there.

I spent the remaining hours enjoying the freedom of walking around on my own in Gloucester on this warm fall day, had a nice lunch and some wicked good espresso. And while I was doing this Axel and Joe drove to western Massachusetts to take care of some Joe business and have the company of each other during the five hour round trip.

Our shipments have cleared customs, 250 pounds in Minneapolis and the remaining 2500 pounds in Boston. There is now more urgency to rid our house of unnecessary pounds to make room for the new stuff. All of the new pounds are expected to arrive at our door step any time now.

    Sylvia,
    Great to have you back. I am extending an open invitation to go flying with me as my guest. I fly on Saturday mornings from 9:30 to 12:30 in 2496X. That is enough time to go to Katama and return. My next scheduled flights are Oct 15, 22 & 29. My email address is “billriz@verizon.net. ”
