Duped again.


Hope is the folly of the hopeful.

It’s that simple.


I’m down to the immediate. I think it quite possible that it’s over; the place we knew has been removed from the map.

I had a plan which is fully in place now.


Within 48 hours the signatures to transfer ownership of the last 40 years’ abode will take place. A required wait will be in place and then it’s over on April Fool’s Day.

Seems fitting.


Reduction of tasks and concerns will be the result.


I need only to remember to be cautious, never turning my back on an angry sea.

The rest will be easy.

Yep. Not sure I ever thought the Mueller report would be decisive, or at least, that we'd ever get the truth of it....

We'll see.

Keeping an eye on rogue waves is sensible ~ and ever so much more clear where the danger lies and how to avoid.

Maybe skip standing on a drift log at high tide in a storm, too.  ; )

Actually, standing on an old growth drift log with rogue waves in sets coming up is exactly how it's been seeming lately in the world... 

And congrats? on the plan fulfillment. You've been in it for awhile now... hope you love where you are now (and how could you not??)

40 years of nurturing a place is a long time.

The absolute best to you in the new environs. I had a little shock yesterday, a fairly young person telling me how much the area they were raised in had changed already. Sometimes for the better, sometimes, very sadly, not.

argh. Nothing ever seems to be what it should be these days. I'm beyond flummoxed. I am resigned to the idea that we may be in this maelstrom until 2024, though I will never, ever vote for that to happen. 
As for your upcoming plans and events, I wish you an easy transfer and a lovely and much-deserved sense of relief.

"I had a plan which is fully in place now."

We all should be so fortunate as to be able to live in accordance with the plan of our own making...

Admirable and enviable...

Thanks Ron. 

I was blessed with a fighting spirit and partner who learned my bark is worse than my bite.
