Today is the 3rd  anniversary of my husband's death.  Yup it's been that long.  20 years with someone is a long time.  His death shook me.  Many of you were there with me.  I will never forget the kindness of strangers in Georgia who showed up at my house because "That is just what we do here ma'am"...True southern hospitality.  They brought hams, turkeys, pies....Kenny would have loved it.  The biggest irony in his death was that the move to Georgia brought him and I so close.  We had a lake with a little canoe, we were clean and sober and life was just getting sweet.  Why God chooses when he does, only he knows. 

So today I will clean the house, and remember. I cried for a few minutes this morning and than wiped the tears because I know he is in a much better place right now.  I have been watching the news lately and what I see scares me.  Cannibals in Florida and Md???? Wtf?  My nephew went to school with the one boy in Joppatowne, Md.  He calls it the Zombie Apocalypse.  I don't think Kenny would like to live in this world.  That is why he chose a secluded home on a lake that was rather isolated.  He was done.  Done with row homes and neighbors. No more "Associations" with their rules.  He could sit on the porch naked and no one would see.  Our dog could run like the wind with no leash..( I feel like singing Born Free, but I'll spare you). 

The journey continues without him.  I never would have thought the story would take this turn, but their is always a new twist along the way.  That was more like a crash, but same principle.

So here is a toast to life and death and the journey...Salud!

Tiny routers and such

Always save a spare router.  Seriously.  Comcast will be here this morning, supposedly.  Hmmph..for all the money I pay I better get a lap dance along with tech support.  So I come to you via my old Virgin Mobile router that I saved.  Turns out that I still had money on my account.  That was a decent surprise. 

Same old same old this weekend.  My friend came over for the weekend.  Now that the house looks like a home, we, Tina, Joe and I had our first formal sit down dinner this weekend. Brand new dishes and everything.  There is something to be said for a pretty table.  It went well. 

Today is Monday and everything is closed.  (Except Comcast, lol)  Yes, this is a very boring post but so is my life at times.  I am slurping coffee and chain smoking, but I figure my long dog walk will make up for it, kind of a health ying/yang thing.  I do walk twice a day, early in the morning and when the sun goes down.  All kinds of things have been known to happen when the sun goes down.....Peace!
