We’ve not been missing.Â Just busy!
We have arrived safely in Friday Harbor. We’ve caught up on our sleep, checked into staff housing, mostly unpacked, purchased new rain gear, visited our new home, registered at the city office so we’ll have water, sewer & garbage service, purchased a ton of groceries, visited 0ne of our favorite restaurants TWICE, had our satellite dish installed, gotten to know two of the local cab drivers, and right now Amoeba is out picking up the car our new landlords are loaning us (yes, you read that correctly) until ours arrives.Â After he gets the car, he plans to attend choir practice at church.
My blog reader lists almost 200 unread posts.Â I am never going to be able to catch up.Â However, I’ll beÂ around to visit, soon. If I don’t read all of your back posts, please understand there is only one of me and 89 of you.
The fact that I can come and visit you at all is courtesy of Thom.Â He gave me his Acer Aspire One laptop.Â He did it so he wouldn’t have to miss me, and you all benefit, too.Â No one could ask for a kinder or more generous & loving friend.
Thom, I miss you and I wish you were here.Â Of course, if you were, you’d likely be bitching about all the wind and the rain and the gray, but so far I am appreciating the fact that for the first time in 28 months, I am not sweating!
