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.

INDEED!!!! My relief is just huge. I am completely spent.

We have a new President. Life is wonderful.

We stayed up all night watching 7 and a half hours of live coverage on italian tv, and weeping with joy! La vita e' bella veramente!

Hi Jane, I totally agree and it was done in great style and grace.

One of my friends emailed me last night, "It's morning in America." Hooray for the new dawn!

Someone likened this moment in history to man's landing on the moon, "One giant step for mankind!"
I was thinking of you and esp. CASEY last night.

Isn't this the best?

Yes, we did!

I can't stop smiling!

Jane, Ken, & Casey,

How happy a day is this, and the hope for our future and our childrens' future has been relit.

And, as Paul Krugman said, "The monsters are gone"

Hallelujah indeed!!
A friend of mine from British Columbia says she "is glad to have her faith in humanity restored - thanks America!"

Yes, it is a wonderful time. Tears still come at times. Now, we must pray for Obama's safety and wisdom as he approaches the incredible tasks facing him.
