There is a reason for quiet in my blogging world. I have
So… we got back, worked on the yard and went to Baltimore, the land of our beginnings. We stayed in town and spent a lot of time at the Inner Harbor, riding around in the water taxi like regular tourists! One of them was called the Indefatigable, for Horatio Hornblower fans! We ate crabs the way they were meant to be eaten, over newspaper, and in delicately broiled crabcakes, and watched fireworks over the harbor. It is always nice of people to do fireworks for our anniversary. we always appreciate it! Anybody else get fireworks for theirs???? Truth be told , we watched them from our motel room and we had given up and had the New York ones on TV, since the weather had had a nasty turn. Then about 9:45 we hear boom boom and music that didn’t go with the TV, so we turned off the TV and enjoyed the local show. We checked in to the Art Museum which is free in Balto, to see some mosaics from Antioch, splendid things.
We concluded with a ride on dinner boat on the Harbor, which was very nice. We were a little surprised when we weren’t getting our own table and were seated at a table for 8, but it turned out okay. The couple across from us were from Lancaster. The husband had grown up around the corner from us. Another woman was from Iowa City and her husband was from Annapolis. They are both musicians in the USAF. I showed her my recent pictures from my camera of which there are too many cloud pictures and we drooled together. They were celebrating their 3rd anniversary.
After that, well, Joel had a cough that sounded deep and after getting some medication he had an allergic reaction to it and ended up in the ER plus an overnight at the hospital. He has gradually recuperated and left me for part 2 of Trade Show season. I wrestled with these white polo shirts he has to wear and told him to tel his boss I hate them. He said he already knows! Well, at least it isn’t the dead of winter and I don’t have to be mainly occupied in keeping the house warm, plus, I’ve got Sam and Lu for company and I can go places if I want to, not being tied down to a job.
Well, that’s all for now, folks, people got appetites rolling in right around the corner and somehow they got conditioned that i will do something about it!
