A long way back

A painting I have just completed

It may have seemed to some that I had abandoned my post at Bare Foot Pass, but not so. I have been preoccupied with other things. Two old friends of mine are now in a nursing home and one of them is not long for this world. The last time I saw them they were dancing together the Tennessee Waltz. They both loved to dance. Sadly neither knows that the other shares the same nursing home. I have earned the title of jack of all trades and have been very busy around home working and completing many odd jobs. It was a long list and I am down to three. We have had a lot of rain in the last month and very stormy weather, but as of the present we have not faced the storms others around us have. Heidi and I have walked in the rain a lot this spring. She dosen't seem to mind, nor do I. Rain dripping off the brim of my old Stetson is a common occurance these days. I have come into possession of a thirty x beaver hat. A fine hat it is. The so called Rapture passed and all is well of course. I just don't understand people who make such talk. I have completed anther painting, a seascape. I believe I like it. My wife says it is one of my best. Adios. Ronnie
