Days 5-8 - Intermission

Days 5,6,7 & 8 – Intermission

            I may not make an entry on all of the next few days. The reason is because I am at my cousin’s and we will basically be doing a lot of visiting and most of what we will do won’t be particularly “adventure” in nature. I will catch you up on my little intermission at some point. That said, anything could happen!

            I got to my cousin’s a little after 10 this morning and we’ve had a great time visiting thus far. I really like her and her husband, Don. They are good folks. Yes, Virginia, there are good folks in California too. They are conservative and Christians like me and we have a lot in common. I know that we will do some things besides just visiting, but we haven’t made any plans other than to take my granddaughter to see the Golden Gate Bridge on Monday once she arrives by plane Monday morning. There’s a lot of research that my cousin has done on our fathers’ side of the family and I will be collecting some of that for a book that I will be writing that will be fiction but based on their lives and events from their lives. Don is also a history buff (one thing we have in common is a degree in History) plus he is a writer doing a column for a local newspaper.

            Frances is a terrific person and I’m glad to have reconnected with her in recent years. She will be invaluable to my writing of the book. I hate to say it, but I just don’t have that much to write about tonight. Much of what we did today was talk about our fathers and past events. You’ll have to wait for the book to know about them. This is probably one of the shortest blog entries I’ll ever write, but I’m pretty tired and I think I’ll head for the bed. I hope your week is going well and I look forward to catching you up in a couple of days. Next week is going to be more big adventures only I’ll have my granddaughter Sofia along with me and if anything, that will really liven things up! Have a great night!
