Excused absence

The temp was in the low 40's when I left Minnesota this morning. After flying most of the day, I landed in Austin for some 92 degree reality.

In MN, trees just began to bud last week. Beautiful. When we left Texas three weeks back, everything was green with the fresh start of the new season. It's like we receive the gifts of Spring twice.

In TX, everybody needs to water. Already. They are watering in Minnesota already but largely because the growing season is so short. Perhaps because it will snow again in three months, they design gardens with frivolity in Baja Canada.

It's rather late in the day for any serious effort at posting something new. I'll do better tomorrow. Surgery to replace the pacemaker/defibrillator battery is Friday.

Stay tuned.

Hope the surgery goes well, George, and your pacemaker is back up to speed in no time.

Best wishes, my friend. Too bad they can't just give us a new set of organs when they start giving out. Maybe someday.
