A place for family and friends to see what I'm up to. Visitors welcome here.

Hail Guest, we ask not what thou art.
If Friend, we greet thee, hand and heart.
If Stranger, such no longer be.
If Foe, our love will conquer thee.

Day After Tomorrow


When I was growing up, my mother used to incite our excitement about special holidays by teasing, "Day after tomorrow..."  Day after tomorrow is Christmas.  Day after tomorrow is Easter.  Day after tomorrow is your birthday."

Day after tomorrow my world is going to get a lot bigger.

Day after tomorrow I begin my first international travel experience, leaving Los Angeles for Tokyo, Japan.

Day after tomorrow I meet my first grandchild, firstborn son of my firstborn son.

Dementia has passed.  I now lurk inside a catatonic shell.
