ON THE BACK BURNER

June 3

Today was one of those days. I haven't had a lot of days like this and I am relieved  that I don't. For some reason, I thought my volunteer gig started at noon, but I knew I am there from 10 until 2. So at ,10 o'clock, I was lazing around drinking coffee. I suddenly remembered that I am due there at 10, so I rushed out of the house without my hearing aids.  (I just pretended that I could hear what people said. If you smile a lot, no one notices.)  Then I got lost going to volunteer. I've only been there a few times before I left on  vacation. I turned right out of my street and I should have turned left. I use to do this in Venice a lot. I went to the JCV so often, that my car automatically turned left when I should have gone right.  I finally got myself on the right street and went on to my destination. Streets are crazy in PT. They stop and start at random, so it wasn't completely my mistake. When I started doing my sorting of donated clothes, I realized that my shirt was on backwards. I knew this when I went to put my hand in my pocket and my pocket was around my back. Duh! The rest of the day was fine and now I can 

laugh about how it all went down. Hopefully, I won't have another day like this for at least another life time.Thegood news is that I spent a few hours with my grandson visiting the rhododendron  flower gardens at Fort Thompson . That made the day sweeter.

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?
