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

I just have to show off this picture of my son's oldest....riding a mechanical bull at a church function last evening.

He has on his Grandpa's desert boots....for Gunsite, of course....and one of Grandpa's denim shirts.

The Amazing Miss Emma at the church "do" last night.....everyone in western garb for this early fall gathering......her shirt a la Target, bandanna courtesy of university student cousin.

Is she not beautiful?. She has the eyes characteristic of the females in our family....whether black, blue, green or grey like hers, they are all huge and gorgeous.

You get those cousins in a room, and you immediately know they are related.

8 going on 13.

Had an uneventful train ride to Chicago, grabbed a bit of lunch and am waiting for the Metra out to the airport.

Have crochet to occupy me, as well as a few tasks needing completed.

Silicone arches and heel lifts in my walking sandals are staying in place and working very well. I am pleased, and anticipate a pain free trip.

All is well, and thanks for the well wishes, Deb.

Thank you.

Last, but certainly not least.....middle child, Camden.

My son said these boys must have ridden that bull 50 times.

Safe travels, Maggie. Evelyn.
Evelyn .. Hans and i are thanking you for your kind and considerate message ..

I got so relaxed on the Metra that I sailed right by my stop at O'Hare.

Must get off and back on the train going back, but they're not going to charge me.

I am going to have to do a better job of paying attention.

Grand adventures already. ;o)

No worries you are still home. A silly happening to laugh at.

Might be another story abroad. I try to remember the two stops before mine so I'm ready.

It's going to be a fantastic but different trip. We'll be waiting for the updates.

Maggie,
You must paint those toe nails RED! Then every time you look on them, you'll smile...and that will make you happy!

Oooh....you missed your stop? That would be disconcerting, at least. I sure hope it doesn't happen abroad! Good travels ahead! Evelyn.

P.S. Where are you now?

Maggie, for Lili and Hans:

Dear Airstream 'cousins', you are welcome. My heart goes out to you in going about after losing poor Crumpet. Hopefully, little Muffin will help to fill the void for you while your hearts heal a bit.
Blessings. Evelyn.

Caught the train back toward O'Hare and enjoyed a nice visit with "Lisa", on her way into the city to see Madonna in concert with a friend.

Then, they are spending the night at her condo in the city, before training back in the morning. Nice.

She has been to Greece, also all over the world, about my son's age, so we shared pics of her kids and my grands.

Got off at the airport to....where's the hotel???....Pete, a very nice older gentleman, was headed that way, so escorted me thru the train, the tram, up and down and up and down escalators, directly to the entrance of the hotel.

Got a shower, checked in with my kids and some sleep.

All is well. I don't seem to have left anything important behind.


Maggie
