Sometimes the simplest off-handed comment can result in an incredible flurry of activity — even causing life altering changes! Like the two bug-eyed dogs in the graphic, there are times in life when you see something beautiful (?) and find yourself fascinated by it.
Such is life with Peter. I think I told you that my parents had never met Peggy before I proposed to her. In fact that entire proposal story is quite the tale, but not a tale for today. At any rate, on the day my parents met my bride-to-be my dad took us both for a walk around the block(s). It was a beautiful October weekend and it was very pleasant. After asking my Sweetie a few questions and talking just with her for a while my dad chose this as his first major, considered, statement to say to my future wife: “Well, Life will never be boring with Peter.” And she has reminded me from time to time that I need do nothing to cause that to happen — is just does when I’m around.
And so it was that in a moment of whimsy I wondered out loud: If we are only committed to staying in TX this year until March 31st, and if our plans for the summer don’t actually begin until July 1, what if we took in a little bit of Florida? After all we have three months in there to play around.
The comment laid there.
A few hours it was taken up briefly and given a shake or two.
And some time passed and we took it up again. Of course we didn’t get very far — Peg is under the weather and all congested and most of the day she was just wanting to sleep, or be left alone.
But — it’s still on the table. It took a little while to determine that we could find places to stay sort of in areas we might want — but neither of us was wanting to make a decision. Yet.
So, hang on. We may still do something unexpected this Spring!
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
