Now You See Me…

Tonight the desktop goes into its box, ready for storage. The monitor will sleep with its sister in a large storage tub cushioned with coats and sweaters. Keyboard will reside for the duration with its two brothers in a special box that’s just right in size. Right and Left Speaker plan to snuggle


up with Monitor in its tub.

They will go to garage storage tomorrow morning, along with desks and printer tables.  A couple of loads in the car will get everything where it needs to be. We’ll be left with our camping gear and folding chairs that will go to the garage last thing.

Yep, one more day before we move out. We’re so excited! Last minute items to take care of tomorrow will take little time.

From now on, I’m going to shoot for at least a weekly update; more often if I can manage it. The updates will consist of all sorts of things; weather along with traffic reports, sights taken in during the drive, speculations about traveling now versus during the warmer months of the year, and sundry other items.

I certainly hope to tie it all to writing. That’s one of the goals I have. In the meantime, I’d like to take the opportunity to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season.

I know most are preparing for those last days of the month. We’re planning on spending Christmas along the River Walk in San Antonio, then move on to Fort Worth before heading to Houston. At least once we’ll be tiptoeing in the warm Gulf waters along a strand of white sandy beach.

Please no tears. Some of you will be warmer than we are. Remember we’ll be using a tent when we aren’t visiting friends, and even then sometimes.

So have a great weekend and enjoy the coming festivities. Take care and God bless.

Until later, a bientot,

    Oh, my dear Clauds! You will be right in the midst of the research group with which I worked for years! My old boss, Dr. Garry Cole, moved his research lab from here in NW OH down to the University of Texas at San Antonio.

    Dr. Chiung-Yu Hung: http://bio.utsa.edu/Researchprof/hung.html

    Garry Cole and his wife, Judy, are two of the loveliest people you could ever wish to meet. They would do anything for anyone. His right-hand in his lab is Chiung-Yu. She and her husband Jieh (pronounced JAY — I called him Super Man) are the same way.

    If you and Jo run into any trouble down there, you contact them. Heck, why not contact them anyway? 🙂 And give them all hugs from me, okay?

    My prayers will be with you and Jo EVERY SINGLE DAY. I can’t wait to get your updates, Clauds. Hugs, and God speed.

    Dear Clauds

    You continue to inspire
    in tents
    or at home
    musing on
    the calliope
    of life
    or penning
    a poem
    present there you are
    there is no near or far
    To and for you dear Claudette Young
    Joy filled church like bells peal with laughter
    Rung and Sung

    Hearts & Hugs
    You are always close no matter how far the marked geography
    Go with love…
    Enjoy the ride
    Let the music play on… We’ll be listening!
