You had to be there to understand....
The Golden Gophers and the Vikings are finished for the year. I just planted my first peat pod sunflowers in my greenhouse.
My son, John, his reconstructive surgeon wife, Sheryl, his in-laws, Robert and Linda Levine, are taking off, as I write, for India, for two weeks where Sheryl will do a bit of reconstructive surgery, and John will complain abut all the work he should be doing. Linda and Bob will love it. Bob's an architect and Lin is a school nurse. John is a Republican! I still love him. He's my oldest son. It's my blog and I can say what I want, right? This isn't China and Microsoft isn't my nanny!
They don't know about or believe in LiveJournal, so I'll be in the dark.
Thomas Friedman's, "The World is Flat," is fabulous. And, I'm reindulging my Spitfire fantasies, in 3 books simultaneously, including a Bobby Oxspring memoir where I've just gone through the escape of the Scharnhorst and its companions through the Straits of Dover. Oxspring saw them leave and sent back the news in the clear but the RAF wasn't ready! 1942 was a tough year.... but I know that things got better.
