Aww, that's sweet, avionstream, but I don't think you had anything to do with it.

I will pass on an apology to him for you, tho, and also know he reads here occasionally so he may see it himself. . I have been scolded by the powers that be for discussing Ray/his departure on another thread, so we don't want to delve into anything here, lest I be scolded again.

I do try to behave, at least most of the time.

Why don't you consider joining us in Wyoming next August 14th, for a great boondocking adventure with Ray, his wife, and some other amazing folks?

And, this invitation is open to anyone who is interested.

It would be great to meet you and I can just about guarantee you will have a wonderful time.


Maggie

Maggie, thanks so much for those quotes -- even tho I know differently, I feel as tho you posted them for me. As I mentioned to you privately, I have been around evil for some time, but I am so pleased to say my Guide has directed me in seeing how to deal and remove myself from it.

Also, I am most happy to tell you that I am now able to swallow food again, so I am carefully rejoining the eaters of the world! Two months of not eating solid food takes it's toll, so now I must begin to regain some of the weight I lost -- and believe me I'll enjoy every bite!!

Wishing you a grand time in Greece and looking forward to pics.

Deb

Thank you, Deb, and glad to hear you are doing better.

Many quotes....other people's words ...resonate with many of us ....in addition to they being how I am feeling, I post them for all of us, as well as for any evil-doers who may read this thread.....that they may know that we know....who and what they are.

Alternatively, Ray and some of the rest of the "Wyoming Group" are having a boondocking trip to the Black Hills and Western Nebraska around the end of May or the first of June. We're about half way to the self imposed limit of group size. All are welcome.

A bit of sweet hubby, going along with me....a favorite mug....with roses, of course.....for morning coffee in my room, and the essential reading glasses....also with roses.

I have actually taken a couple of things out of my suitcase.

My Mother was a very wise woman, who taught us right from wrong...always with the GOLDEN RULE as her guide. To this day, I try to live by the many euphemisms she passed to us, and she was always ready with the appropriate translation when we asked " what does that mean?" It's her little words of wisdom that I instantly recall, when situations arise...those challenging times...they still see me through the hard times.

I think of Mom's words when I read the various quotes that you post. Most of them recall to me....all those many lessons on life and living it the best way....that me and my seven siblings learned from our dear Mother...all those many years ago!

Words of wisdom

Gosh, even in a Walmart ad..... "Anger is the pathway to the dark side."

How true!

Sorry you will not be at Alumalina, Maggie

Hi Tommie!

I would loved to have had a cappuccino and a visit with you at Alumalina, and hear all about your travels this year. I will be trying Greek coffee and Frappes. Have an extra one for me.

John is planning the Spring 2016 Alumalina the first weekend in April, by which time I will need to be home, and I will be West next fall, so it may be 2017 before I get to another one.

I will be at James Island County Park the entire month of February, tho, then the first two weeks of March at Edisto, so maybe take a drive down to visit me, hmm?

Made a favorite coffee cake for my (and several more) breakfast this am, and a big pan of brownies for the lunch crowd, so all my eggs are used up.

Final tasks are being completed, reservations confirmed, toenails manicured , and Lily is looking at my suitcase wondering just..what..is..going..on. She is staying very close.

She will be fine, in very good and loving care at my son's.......and as Bud suggested I will take her for a pack walk before coming into the house when I get back....and hopefully avert any re-entry issues for her.

My sweet Lily.


Maggie

Wheeee, indeed.

Glad I checked reservations, as I was planning to go to the wrong hotel tomorrow.

Maggie,

Glad you checked too. It would not have been a good start to what I'm sure will be a great trip. Looking forward to reading about all your adventures.

Thanks, Carol.

I'm looking forward to seeing and exploring Greece a bit....but I'm not excited like I usually am right before something like this. It's just not the same without Doug by my side, but I guess this is another of those widow "firsts", moving thru a new life. It will be good, I am sure, but different.

Doug was a political scientist at heart, loved history, and was an omnivorous reader. He also seemed to have never forgotten anything. We could be anywhere, and he could and would add to the historical narratives of the person or locale with some odd bits of trivia.

One of the smartest men I ever knew.....I really loved and appreciated his mind.

I have been talking with him, getting ready for this trip....I hope he will join me and lead me a bit.

I will be listening.


Maggie
