A warm HELLO to one and all,
It appears the old coffee shop thread has fallen by the wayside, so I take it upon myself to begin a new one. As usual, it is the place where good friends can sit and chat about something that may or may not significantly warrant a thread of its own.
So to any newcomers, feel free to talk about anything and everything (within the rules and regs of GW, of course) Let your mind ramble, reflect upon your life, your dreams, your hopes - whatever strikes your fancy. And if you aren't a coffee drinker, that's OK - imbibe in the beverage of your choice.
Yes, I'm back, at least for now. Of course, I haven't been too far away since I lurk now and then to catch up on things and see how everyone is doing.
I had some vague reason for checking the calendar this A.M. --Ummmm-- it is my birth date. Today I am exactly 69 1/2 years old - older (though NOT wiser) than most of you. Soon, I will be embarking upon my eighth decade. Sometimes it seems the years have rushed past as though they were quicksilver. Where have they flown? My mind keeps insisting I am still young, yet it fails to convince my body of the same. My hair is now mostly white, my age spots more prevalent. Yet, I still have this urge to hop, skip, run, jump, when in reality a sedate walk is about the most I can manage these days.
Life, despite its adversities, has been (and is still) good. Oh, I've "seen some sad times, been through some bad times", but thanks to the Power This Is, I have survived and hopefully have become a better person.
My travels this year have not progressed as originally planned, but I am still working on them. I have made several delightful journeys, none of which, dear eloise, has taken me to your fair state. That is on hold at present.
I must go now and update my profile page. I had been away so long I had forgotten my sign-in password and had to call on GW for assistance.
May all of you have a wonderful weekend.
