Default It will take some time

every day is a little better without Linda. have some family in town until tomorrow, have really enjoyed visiting with them and just talking about family stories. stories about Linda, about her sister and BIL, about my sister....just talking and listening. a little crying, a lot of laughter. it's good.

and of course, i have this collection of broken toys that i enjoy playing with from time to time. had a good chat with Rob yesterday, heart to heart, he might have caught some pollen from the phone. but big boys don't cry...real men do when they suffer a loss though. we cry because we cared.

so thank you to everyone who replied in her threads, who dropped me a PM. your kind words and friendship truly touched my heart.

as the Rabbi would tell you: son, you can't sit Shiva forever, you must go on and finish the work that God has given you to do.

Gen 50:3 - "...and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days."

Num 20:29 - "And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they mourned for Aaron thirty days, even all the house of Israel."

2Sam 1:12 - "And they mourned, and wept, and fasted until even, for Saul, and for Jonathan his son, and for the people of the LORD, and for the house of Israel; because they were fallen by the sword."

2Sam 11:26 - "And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband."

2Sam 13:37 - "But Absalom fled, and went to Talmai, the son of Ammihud, king of Geshur. And David mourned for his son every day."

I may have enjoyed that call more than you my friend. If you ever feel inclined to hop in the car for a long drive, because I remember you dont like flying, my door is always open. I will even take you to my favorite hot chicken joints.

i kinda like staying home.....but we do have a 2br/1ba guesthouse. no valet parking, but you can park anywhere you wish. might turn the heat and water on, might even feed you if you aren't too picky.

I notice that Iíve been calling it a day earlier, crashing around 9:30 on average, sleeping well most nights, and waking up around 5:30.

Trying to eat right, Oreos are almost gone, but the grapes are still safe in the fridge

Itís just good to be able to write about things here.

Thank you.

Going to bed at 9:30, and getting up at 5:30 is pretty much SOP for me. Noting wrong with that IMO.

previously, it was more like 10:30-6:30, Linda liked to watch the 10 oclock local weather guess.
