    Not sure I can commit to every day of August, but I will chime in as I’m able to.

      I remember your Mexico City trip post! And I also remember hoping that 2017 would be better than 2016 and that 2018 better than 2017 and that 2019 better than…well, you get my drift, right?

    Query for you: I published a new post 13 minutes ago—12:30 pm your time. Once again, it’s not showing on my Reader. Can you tell me if you see it on yours—and if so, when? Last week, when this happened on Saturday, WP insisted via subsequent email that it had gone up—but that was 20 hrs later!

      Sorry that I’m just getting around to responding but I was tied up for much of the day. I just checked and did NOT see your post in my reader.

        Thank you! That is very helpful info for me to give the HEs, who will insist that it’s there even though invisible!

          I hope they can get to the bottom of it.

    I recently shared with one of my sons that I think I would like to take a trip to Sri Lanka some day. He recommended that I not do it. (The next time I saw him he spoke of going hunting. Soooo… ew.) I know there was a terrorist attack there not very long ago. But the beaches look beautiful.

    I think the link for imagining going there came up because I’d been looking at Croatia. What kind of weirdo looks at beach studios or country houses in Croatia? I haven’t even been to France. Well, someone had played video of a cellist on a big tv downstairs. I figured out his setting was Croatia.

    I looked up forts in Croatia. There’s
    a lot about defending against
    Turks or the Ottomans.

    The sisters’ blissful reunion was on June 27, and since then, they’ve continued to build their bond, with Boro even introducing Crippen to four more of their siblings — with whom she’d connected through Facebook — virtually, according to the Post.

    “It’s wonderful,” Crippen told KETV. “And in the end, we don’t have to search anymore. The journey’s over.”

      That song, by those two, is about as nostalgic as it gets. Hands down.

      I enjoyed your writing on the topic, too, but won’t say more and give it away.

    I don’t think I’ve taken enough vacations to commit to every day, unless you count 9 years in Israel as a VERY long vacation. Anyway, it’s up tomorrow. Maybe i’ll get to reuse all those great Arizona pictures.
