    Thank you. I appreciate that. It may or may not ever get published but the process is interesting.

    I aspire to that. Seriously. It's my dream to move south and to the coast... or just to the coast left or right at minimum.
    I want to be able to go out and sit on my own dock and drink coffee, and jump in my yak and paddle whenever, and catch the fishes and eat them for dinner.
    *dreams*

    Also. Sex. Yeah... that stuff is important.
    I can't believe how many people underestimate this.
    I made husband pause the fights last night for a bit.
    15 years and we still got it.
    That quote is so true. And you and your hubs give me hope for longer term relationships. I have never managed anything past about four years at a stretch in my life.

    Isak Dinesen was a woman -- Karen Blixen. That's just her pen name. She was one awesome lady. I saw both her home in africa and her home in denmark. it was very cool to see both homes. She was really amazing.

    Well that is awesome.

    While I've read Out of Africa, Seven Gothic Tales, and Winter's Tales... all in old vintage print versions, so no cover flap mentions of pen names or pictures... I never really dug into the author.
    Now I may feel like digging into more.

    Indeed.

    I have been finding that I don't react well to wine these days. Not sure why, perhaps the sulfates? In any case on an internet trawl for alternative beverages, I ran across this place:Wines | Black Bear Winery which sells just about every kind of non-grape wine you could think of. Of course, I went and bought a bunch of them. So far the Dandelion Wine is amazing and I am presently sipping a glass of the Locust Blossom wine over ice.

    Life is good.

    The organic wines here in Sonoma are excellent, no sulfates, I'll drop one or two bottle off for you next time I'm down your way.

    Sounds like a plan. Primal BBQ at my house.
