ON THE BACK BURNER

August 2

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date.Now I know what it is like to sleep late.It's after 7:30 and I just woke up. I hope that I don't have to make any major decisions today, because I am still sleep deprived. I spent the evening with many people doing the same thing that we were. Waiting for a plane from Newark that was supposed to come in at 10:45. We all stood as one family as we watched the ARRIVAL board scroll to 11:30 and then later to 12:49am. You heard the groan. There is a lot of activity at airports at midnight. Unfortunately, nothing is opened.But the merchandise looks great behind the mesh curtains. And the security guy rides around on funny wheels. He should be paying his company for his job. It looked like too much fun.There is a lot of drama at airport waiting areas. You saw people carrying flowers,later I saw Grandparents hugging kids who came to visit before school starts. I tried to listen to conversations. I overheard a man telling how he lost his teaching job after 25 years because the principal said that he was too nice to the kids. Who's story are you going to believe at 12:49 in the morning.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
