He Wants Me to Go

and I committed to him years ago in marriage but not to where he is working. I am worried that the stress of a commute will be worse than the air travel.

He doesn’t want to live there, either. We might be looking at one-hour flights. Hopefully from a tax-free state.

Right now, we are home and he tries to see me and dog Zoe every weekend. My father moved us a lot so a home base is important to me. Clients are ephemeral, they come and go on a whim. I can’t justify moving lock, stock and barrel for one client who might disappear tomorrow.

I know where we’ll end up. He doesn’t, yet. I’ll stay here until he has time to think about it. Cheers and Good Morning! Dee


Coffee, Tea, Me?

Not me. I love the smell of roasted coffee and that of tobacco in the local shop as a kid with Dad. I do not partake of either.

I’ve been driven through coffee outlets many times, for one girl friend, the driver. We have only had herbal tea. Living in the UK made me believe in electric kettles. Their electrical circuits are so strong they can boil water in a minute. Ours aren’t that fast but work in mountains where water boils at 140 degrees F. Stovetop takes forever and tea is cold. Don’t even ask me about hard-boiled eggs, that took a summer to perfect.

Then, what does one add to that water? I bought a special mix for my husband that I love and he doesn’t like so we went to Teavana and bought him a tea he likes and a carafe in which to make it. I know I have too much kitchen stuff! Think of tea as the next star*****.

He has a cold and needs hot tea so I’ll go and brew some for him. Yes, I’m staying away from him lest I’ll get the bug. Cheers! Dee

ps the two blends we have are the Beach Bellini, my favorite, and my husband’s is the Raspberry Limeade.


My husband had a 90-minute flight Monday morning. They texted him. They texted me separately 8 times between 11:30 at night and 4:30 this morning when I got up and turned off the ringer.

It was delayed, cancelled, reinstated, then delayed again and again. He finally left 2 1/2 hours after his departure time and then at his destination, they were kept on the tarmac for over an hour. Supposedly on an “active runway” they could not unbuckle seat belts, use the lavatory or even get a glass of water.

This is not acceptable. My husband has a full day of meetings today, underwent a time change and this kind of stress is perpetrated on the public who pay good money to take a plane to a destination. First they have TSA, and 95% of their agents don’t know their buttocks from their elbows. Yes, that was on the news just last week.

Then we must deal with airlines and the FAA. Hello, Greyhound? Do you have a bus to Atlanta next week? Hello, AMTRAK, goodbye as you’ve no service whatsoever as we were 14 hours late for Thanksgiving a couple of years ago.

We now drive most places but this wasn’t an option for my husband for this trip. Let’s hope he gets home safe tomorrow night. Wishing it so, Dee
