Three weeks of glorious weather.
Three weeks of shorts and tee shirts.
Three weeks of coffee on the porch in the morning.
Three weeks of happy hour on the porch in early evening.
Three weeks of caring for Mabel
Home to Portland
Twelve hours travel time from coast to coast.
Rising at 4 A.M. to make a 6 A.M. flight.
Sitting around in Atlanta due to a delayed flight.
Watching news reports about disturbing incidents on the airlines.
Landing in Portland, Oregon to rain and cold weather.
Jet lagged. Tired. A little dazed.
OK, Now What?
Time for work. Time for the gym.
Time to resume life without my daily dose of Mabel.
It’s hard being a long-distance grandmother.
My precious grandson Aiden lives in Denver. He is six.
Aiden and I talk on the phone and do Hangouts.
I send him letters.
He is coming this summer to visit.
Aiden in Denver. Mabel in Alabma.
Me in Portland.
Turn around and they are grown.
