Flight over and food not so bad

April 7: It's still rain season here, so it's cold and wet.

From the ice they are freed, the stream and brook,
By the Spring's enlivening, lovely look;
The valley's green with joys of hope;

An impotent shower of icy hail
Streaking over the verdant vale.

Take a chance, plan a trip

A number of folks have asked me why I don't write more travel stories of all the places the Old Fellow and I have visited.

On the other hand, I know people who have no interest in the world except the horizon.

My own mother never knew which direction was East or West.
