Greetings From Udine!

image

Today we depart Udine, after finally meeting my Pen Pal of over a decade and a half.

Giorgio wrote a letter to Radio Cayman, looking for a pen pal. Our accounts/HR officer gave the letter to me, asking if I was interested. I wrote back and the rest is history!

It has been wonderful spending time here and meeting Giorgio and his family. We have enjoyed their hospitality immensley! They picked us up at the train station and took us sightseeing. We have not needed a taxi once in Udine.

I hope we meet again soon!

Udine in general is a beautiful town, I personally, think it kicked Romes butt!

Kinda Friday

Tomorrow and Monday are holidays here. Weather’s supposed to be good, .. Bring the weekend!

Got up and went running/walking this morning. I went down a new beach path, in the dark. I’ll have to go back and check it out later.

Running late this mrning, gotta go.

If I don’t see you tomorrow, HAVE A GOOD WWEEKEND!

First Post Of 2016!!!

Focus on the good, not the bad! (my original title was “First Workday of 2016”.)
Today’s going to be a hot, sunny day and I’m going to the beach at lunchtime! It’s early morning and Crux is high in the sky.
Here’s some pics from the long weekend:

My visiting Navy friend Jeff at East End.

My brother in law’s sidewalk marker for diving each and every East End dive site. This is MUCH more prestigious than an actor  having a star on the sidewalk in Hollywood.

The first sunset of 2015, there was also a green flash.

And a new, experimental collage, made using my phone! ☎

Have a good day, a good week, and a good year!

Rebel Without A Cause

Yesterday I took this pic of Sheba, defiantly sitting on this bench on the back porch. Look on her face said she knew she wasn’t supposed to be there. She was so cute. From now on, she can sit there any time she wants.

FRIDAY! We get off early today because of the work Christmas party. I’m not going because I didn’t RSVP in time because I was in Mexico. I don’t mind not going.

It’s going to be another great day! Have a good weekend!
