I wanted to thank you guys for the prayers for my Dad. He is recooperating well, all things considered.

I went to Europe for a month and traveled all over the place. From Germany to the Netherlands through Belgium and France and the French Riviera and the Italian Riviera, past Firenze (we know it as Florence), to this little town called Bagnoergio. I stayed there and rented a house for 2 weeks and visited Rome and the Tuscan and Umbrian coutryside, and Orvieto, a lovely hill town perched on a cliff. I drove from there up through Switzerland and saw the tour d'suisse, saw snow in the alps in the middle of june, and watched old westerns dubbed over in italian.

It puts things in perspective, I tells ya. I wish everyone would travel. It does you good and makes you realize that you don't need to fixate so much on what is bad, and if you do, you end up making your whole life like that.

Hugs to all, I thought of you while I was gone.

glad to hear that you liked europe!

During the last 9 years, I coudn't get away from my job for longer than a week at a time. Last autumn I went to Turkey for three weeks. Half of the holiday with a travel group, and half the time on my own. In a country without a lot of people who understand English or German, the people have predominantly muslim background, but the state ist strictly secularized. It was quite an experience, and I have a lot of very cherished memories - art, culture, but mainly people, people, people. Oh yeah, and Sandra Bullock and Schwarzenegger movies on the bus to and from Ancara dubbed in Turkish were fun, too 🙂
