Midnight Express

So, at this twilight time as everyone has dinner, listens to the news, chats wihh their families, I am closing up the House at White Picket Gardens...fresh sheets on the beds, cupboards and closets empty, boxes shipped. For tonight I take the Midnight Express (or so I call it) from Waterloo, Indiana to Washington, D.C. and there transferring to Norfolk, Virginia. The summer plans? To spend the summer with my wonderful friend, Philip on Ocracoke Island. It will definitely be a adventure, for as he says, "Toto, we aren't in Kansas anymore." I can't even begin to anticipate all the events of the summer...so let's just let it unfold. The journey is a combination of Dr. Zhivago and the Polar Express..my lunch is packed, my ride is waiting at the door...time to log out, pack up the lap top as the last item in my carry on. Adventure awaits.

My quote of the day: "Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile." -Sir Wilfred Grenfell
As you depart for adventures unknown remember these wise words! By the way, I just reserved 6-24-04 at the Maple Leaf Inn for a Victorian Tea with my step-daughter and step-daughters-in-law, along with two 2-year old granddaughters. I am stretching, my friend. Keep in touch!KAD
