Yes Ma’am, it’s my lovely mother’s 99th birthday. She’s wonderfully alive and kicking, living alone at home, and playing bridge at every opportunity. I’m blessed that she’s still in my life. Missing her birthday is part of the family approach to life. She and Dad were hearty sailors well into their late 80s, so she was 100% supportive of this trip, for us, over attending her today. Still, I’m sorry to not give her these wishes, and a kiss, in person.
Shar and I will be thinking about you all day.
Out and about
We’re leaving for Malaga, Spain tomorrow, so getting a few fresh grocery items are on the list…but the parameters of this chore don’t look anything like a ‘leg’ provisioning. Kim will meet us there. Shar and I are planning a side trip of several days to Granada.
The weather is cooler and mostly cloudy, with a thunder clap or two in the forecast. Assent of the Rock does not appear to be in the cards, as I have no portable radar to see through the clouds.
