Good Morning! A little later start than normal Friends, Neighbors and all the rest of ya's! Sleeping in an unfamiliar beds is always an adjustment for me, seems more so as I get older. I dropped off to sleep right away around 8:30 but was awake at 11L00 for some unknown reason for an hour or two. (I listened to some audio books.) One more interruption around 2 and then back to slumber land until about 4:30.
I had a very relaxing day yesterday, went to dinner with Randy last night to a little hole in the wall in Columbia, MO. Great steak and potato place with a Greek bent to it with Gyros and the like. It was later meal, pretty much went to bed when we got back home. I think Bell is returning today, she has been enjoying her time visiting with her mother.
It has given Randy and I ample time to visit and reminiscence about our childhood in Elsberry, mutual friends that have floated out of orbit, memories of our parents and speculation about the future which is often more grim than hopeful. That last note is not all fatalistic, there are glimmers of hope, but America's rehab program is not going to be easy. Like many people, life changes often come as a result of the consequences of ignoring the current situation until the proverbial chickens come home to roost. I am hoping the Mother of our Culture does not need a heart attack or stroke to change Her ways, but we rambled on about that seeming to be the path we are on like it or not. Our Nation, like many of our neighbors, seem inattentive to their situation growing worse. I am just hoping we can reset the cultural narrative where the Right and Center Right work on stabilizing the cultural and economy, the Left & Center Left work on the arts and real integration of the richness of American culture and both agree to get out of education as a federal reality and return it to local communities. Probably a pipe dream, but I have enjoy my visits with Randy and of course my sojourns among all of you wonderful people. Happy Tuesday Friends!
