“Any subject can be made interesting, and therefore any subject can be made boring.”

Today is beautifully sunny and warm. When I went on the deck earlier this morning, I could smell the sweetness in the air. It smelled of flowers and herbs and a touch of the ocean. A slight breeze rustled the leaves of the trees in the backyard. I have a few flowers wanting pots so I’ll be outside taking in the sun and potting some plants for the deck. The fountain needs some tubing so I’ll visit the hardware store late in the afternoon so as not to waste a minute of the sun. It has a tendency to disappear.

I don’t remember my graduation from the eighth grade, and that amazes me as memorable events in my life usually hang around in my memory drawers just waiting to be tapped. I figure it could have been in the church as that was large enough or even the town hall with its stage and rows of wooden chairs. I do remember wearing a frilly dress. The boys wore jackets and ties. The nuns wore habits.

Today is a tabula rasa day. I don’t seem to have much going on in my head. Maybe it’s the sun and my wanting to be outside. Maybe it’s because I haven’t really been doing much of late. Polishing bookcases, doing laundry and changing my bed make for boring conversation. Perhaps I should embroider a story, an adventure, but you’ve been around every day and would know it was make-believe. I did buy a new piece of luggage, a duffel on wheels, and I’m now a Global Entry Member. That means I get to go to the head of any US customs’ line. I just have to wave my passport and card and someone will take me to the head of the line. I’m figuring the person I cut in front of won’t be too happy.

Well, that’s it. The sun is calling my name. I’m done for today!

    Some sun, some rain and fairly warm here today. It feels nice to stay indoors.

    I had to think back and I have to admit I canยดt remember that either ๐Ÿ™‚ Well itยดs sort of a middle year in school so I guess we just was on the school yard singing some songs, listening to the headmaster and then we went in and got our grades. I donยดt think I can remember the seventh grade either ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a fire in the stove but got back draft in the chimney so now my cottage smells like smoke and fires. Well anything small must have died when the smoke was as thickest ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great day!
    Christer.

      Christer,
      It stayed beautiful all day long. I sat outside and finished decorating my deck for summer. I was sweaty and tired when I finished.

      I remember all the other grades and I even remember the eighth. I just don’t remember graduation.

      The windows are open, and the new air smells great.

    You must be a frequent flyer. We just got an email from a blogger buddy to Ann’s blog Zoolatry. They are leaving England on the first of June heading to NY for three days; flying to Miami and staying two weeks in the Keys. Then driving up to Jacksonville vis a v our house. It will be the second time we meet a blogger buddy from the internet, Ralph Cherry was the first. So we look forward to seeing them in the next two weeks, give them a home cooked meal.

      Z&Me,
      Nope, no frequent flyer here. It was through my AmEx card.

      It’s neat to meet people with whom you’ve developed a friendship but never seen. I bet they’ll have a wonderful time, and you two will be consummate hosts!

    The last time we flew we got to go to the head of the line,,,, then down some stairs to a room where we got to stand on a box, get patted down, and had chemical detection wands basting our luggage. Then we got to wait in a separate room than the other passengers until the last minute before the plane took off.
    We didn’t feel the least bit privileged.

      John,
      This is coming into the country from abroad.

      I know some passengers are randomly chosen for a more extensive look, but I haven’t ever heard of one this extreme. I would have been furiously, but I guess that would only have worsened the situation.

    Unfortunately, the Global Entry thing only works in the U.S. You still have to stand in lines when arriving or leaving other countries.

    Last week I was lucky to get a free upgrade to Business Class on American Airlines to London. It’s the first time I have had that experience. It was wonderful. The seat actually goes flat and you can sleep. The food is served on table cloths with real silverware. Free wine and drinks and a choice of steak or shrimp and an ice cream sundae for desert. They loan each passenger a set of Bose noise canceling headphones to enjoy the entertainment system. When you arrive you get to go to the priority line at the passport control.

    Unless you get lucky, the fare is four times more than economy or 25,000 travel miles to upgrade.

      Bob,
      I find getting into other countries far easier than here. In Morocco, I was in and out of customs in about five minutes and In England I just sail through the nothing to declare line. Here is more complicated than.

      I am flying business class to Ghana and first class coming back. It cost me about $2000 more than economy, but the flight is a long one, 11 1/2 hours, and having had the two back surgeries, I wanted the most comfort. I grimaced at the cost but figure I won’t ever be taking this trip again.
