. . . . . .Auf weidersehen, Adieu. To you, and you, and you and you and you. That's what was going through my head as I battled for hours on end yesterday afternoon to replace a couple of hatch gaskets. Believe me, that is an ear worm that I would not wish upon even an enemy. You gotta think it was going through my head because we are leaving tomorrow and there are alot of "so longs" happening right now.
Yesterday morning, I said "hasta la vista" (my preferred term for "so long" as it indicates return at some point) to Greenlake. Yes, I talked to a body of water and I haven't even stood a long lonely watch on this adventure yet. Actually, it was very nice. My friend, Amy, picked me up and we had one last walk around Greenlake together . . . . . for awhile. I remember doing this with another friend before she moved away to another hemisphere. We didn't succeed in solving all of the world's problems or even all of our own, but maybe the normalness of our conversation was what made it so great to me.
This is a short entry because between about NOW and 5:00 this afternoon, according to E-vite, a little over 100 of our friends and family will be wandering down F-Dock for one last visit before we cut our last line tomorrow around 4:00pm. Wish us luck and comment often
