Bonnie Scotland

the auntie is not doing well at all. she didn't recognize us when we visited her.
in fact, looking into a mirror on the wall, didn't recognize herself and marveled
that "it was such a clear picture." i don't want to get old(er). one little lady
with cute hound dog jowels and clear blue eyes rolled her walker up to a table
and asked "am i in here for life?"

read old letters sent by my parents to my grandmother. turns out i was named Sharon the first few days here on earth...

we've booked a 7 day trip (the only one available) in a tour called "Wild in Scotland" out to the Hebridean Isles. The tour is geared to 18 year olds "but some bring their parents".we will most likely be older than the parents. we were reminded to bring a towel and some money for "whisky". will do. we will stay in a "black house" a thatched cottage on the beach for two nights and a "five star" hostel which probably only means there's plumbing. But it does sound fun and considerably less expensive than other organized trips for old farts.

Oh yes, tried to go to both VB and OV's blogs from this public library but was stopped with this message:
