Funny what we find in our briefcases

So I was cleaning out the brief I used on my trip to Europe last year and found a PG Tips tea bag I had picked up from a B&B

The directions are funny

To Prepare the best cup of PG Tips
Brewing methods may vary, but we suggest

1. Use one bag per 250 ml of freshly boiled water.
2. Allow your customer to brew to their preferred strength (1-2 minutes as a guide) then remove the tea bag.
3. Always use fresh milk where possible. And there you have it, a delicious brew fit for a monkey.

Almost losing children

My eldest son got himself in a boat load of trouble in the spring. A felony drug arrest. He was holding a pipe with pot in it. And then he failed most of his classes for the spring because of the stress of not knowing what was going to happen.

Unfortunately he believed his mother who had said a number of times that if he got himself in trouble she would leave him in jail. He thought that if he told us that we would disown him. I could never disown him. He was afraid and thought he would be completely on his own and we did not know until the summons came in May. He had better than two months of not knowing what would happen. If I had known I would have hired a lawyer right off the bat. Just to get him the help he needed early on. But no.

Our kids always need our help. I know that even as an adult with my own children that I asked my Dad for advice and help at times. That is what family is for.

I just hope to be around for a while longer. I had problems on my trip to Denver. Lots of shortness of breath. I am going to ask my cardiologist for surgical intervention. I'm ready. I can't live in the state I am in.

Vacations are great

But also picking the best place to go is a good idea too. So I decided to go the Breckenridge, CO. Its over 9000 feet in elevation here and I'm not moving very well.

I hope my angina does not kick in. I'll have to be real careful. I brought my handicapped hanger with me just in case. Probably a good thing I did. Not overly tired right now. But will have to see how I feel at the end of tomorrow. I will be doing a lot of walking during the day.

The weather here is chilly and rainy right now. Supposed to clear up mid week.

A religion that must hide things from its membership is not worth following and a God who hides things and changes things so that people can be "proved by faith" is a trickster and not worth worshiping.
