Adios, Nueva Noel!

by Pa Rock
Flying Fool

Tiffany Burke, my niece, will be here in thirty minutes to collect me and my baggage and drive the whole mess to the airport. She is my sweetest relative and is definitely in line to inherit my cat, Scroungy Bastard, if she can catch him! Tiffany is such a sweetie that he will probably curl right up in her lap and act civilized!

An interesting thing happened last night. I went to town to grab a sandwich at the local quickie mart. While I was perusing the contents of the sandwich cooler, I noticed the lady at the counter who was waiting on another customer, but paid her no never mind because I was focused on food. When she finished with her customer and turned to help me, she came out with a big "Well, hello stranger!" Much to my surprise and delight, I discovered that the person working the counter was Wife #2, Carol - the massage therapist. We chatted briefly about ourselves and the state of the town, but really didn't have much to say. Carol and I were married for six months about fifteen years ago. Tempus fugit!

Must get packing! Will post Monday's Poetry later tonight from Arizona.

Well, it's nice to know you aren't holding a grudge or a torch! LOL. I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to see each other this time. Unfortunately, this weekend I was busy with a client (who did not buy) and then family ate up the rest. Yesterday, my daughter stayed over until nearly 11 p.m., along with my lovely grandson, and today I had to make pickles or let the garden go to ruin. I will save you a jar!
