Well--as someone has noted--life can be strange.
On the tail of yesterday's frustration comes this.
Casey came running in today--quite excited and exuberant.
He got an OTTIMO on his math test (ottimo is the highest mark!).
I haven't seen it yet as the teacher keeps them.
But, when he does bring it home, it'll go in a frame and on the wall so when he doubts, he can just check it out.
And life goes on!
God sometimes gives us unexpected gifts. Our gift has been a grandson who enlivens our lives and makes retirement very different than the one we anticipated. He is a special joy. And that's "Casey." In 2006 we fulfilled our dream of living in Italy for a year. It was every bit as wonderful as anticipated. This blog begins in 2005 as we prepared for that experience. Since then we have explored many places together. That's the "Travel." And finally, I am a person of opinions--spiritually, politically, on just about anything and that's the "Other Stuff." Welcome to my blog.
