Quick: Be the first to know this before it hits tomorrow's airwaves....
Last night we had a baby sitter for Casey (which, by the way, involves a lot more than the 30¢ per hour that I used to make.) When we came home, she began telling us how really, really smart Casey is. Of course, we already know this but were curious as to how she found out as they watched Ratatouille--not exactly a documentary.
Baby-sitter: He knows so many interesting scientific facts.
Me: Yes, but he tends to make up quite a few, too. How did he enlighten you?
Baby-sitter: I never knew that you can cough up your spleen.
Bet you didn't know this either.
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.
