Judy Visits Again

I am waiting for the airport shuttle to bring Judy, my cousin's daughter, for another visit.  I may not even boot up the next four days so if my name doesn't appear anyplace you will know I am having a lovely time visiting with one of my favorite relatives.  We are not going to leave the house and I will probably enlarge like a balloon because we will also be doing a lot of eating and sipping wine.  

Unfortunately, the weather has not cooled here so all of our talking, eating and sipping will be done indoors.  It is supposed to reach the triple digits today.  Will it ever end?  The nights are cool so perhaps the end of the heat is in sight.  Please let it be so.  Sigh!

I will leave it to the rest of you to cover the news as I doubt that we will spoil Judy's visit by watching a news program.  After the execution of Troy Davis I don't want to see any more depressing news.  That was a very tragic event for Troy and his family and a shameful event for our country.  It was the height of injustice.  On that sad note I will leave you for a few days.   

I do apologize for not being more cheerful as I end this post.

We can all safely ignore the Republican debates, I think. I'm paying no attention to their campaigning until after Christmas.
Have a lovely visit, in spite of the heat and the politics.

I think you are being cheerful with talking of time with someone you like, wine and good conversation. That's the kind of thing we all need to do more of.

Darlene, you deserve a few days of good company and good food and wine.

Enjoy! Take the time off that you need and we will be here when you feel like coming back.

Enjoy Judy......

Hope your visitor and you are having a wonderful time.

I'm just glad to have been able to visit today! For weeks, whenever I signed on, a malware warning shoo'd me away. Looks like it's cleared up...just in time for your break.

Enjoy yourself. The most intrepid of us require breaks from this national miasma for distraction and mental health, for glimpses of something pleasant.

*Hattie - I did have a lovely visit. I think I will tune out on the R's campaign until close to voting time.

*Rain - My company is gone and I had a very nice visit.

*Nancy - I am glad you are still here.

*Cop Car - My batteries are recharged.

*Tabor - We did have a wonderful time.

*Nance - I hope that nasty malware is gone for good. I did everything I knew how to get rid of it.
