My thoughts on everything from albacore tuna to zebras
|OK, so I don't make an entry every day. Will the world end? I don't think so.
Spent yesterday visiting with family in State College, PA. My nieces were in from Arizona, one with her new hubby. First time I met him. Wonder what his impression was of me? Hah-hah!. He's a studier. he listens to the conversations going on around him and takes it all in. He observes. I like that. I, of course, was watching him. Evaluating, seeing if he measured up. So far so good. It was nice to see them. I don't get to do that very often. Arizona is a fair piece from Pennsylvania.
I have many fond memories of watching my nieces grow up and parts and pieces of them are evident in a number of my stories where children are present. It's fun to watch them now, in their twenties, making their way in the world. And to think I knew them when they were in diapers. (grin) I'm very proud of them. I only wished they were closer so I could see them more often.
Well, tomorrow I'm back to work. I enjoy work. I'm one of the lucky few. I actually knew in 8th grade what I wanted to do as a career, and I've been doing it for the past 21 years. It doesn't get much better than that. Of course, since I've been at this site and since I started writing again, I do have fantasies of anoter career, one I probably should have pursued thirty years ago. Mayybe when I retire I'll see if I can actually make money at his writing thing. Who knows.
