Note from Sarah; The first of (hopefully) many posts from Marideth, I am shamelessly going to post everything she sends, uunless of course she specifically tells me not to post something. I might correct (if) any typos I pick up on. Enjoy!
This is my third try at a message. Computer is a pc and very different from ours. Lots of extra keys, and many of the usual ones moved around. Quotes are above the 2, and apostrophes over where the hyphen and underscore used to be, along with the question mark. Very long trip, with confusing time changes, meaning I arrived in Rome 7 a.m. local, but midnight my time, and in Turin at noon, which was 5 a.m. my time, no sleeping except an hour on the Rome-Turin leg. So I fell into bed, slept until 9 p.m. local, got up and took my morning meds and stepped out to dinner at a nearby pizzeria. Had pasta Carbonaro, bruschetta, and coffee and a Beck’s beer to wash it down. Still struggling with jet lag, but all’s well. Jonathan arrives tomorrow and the BBC world news is on the telly, so not everyone will be speaking incomprehensibly. Fridge in room is stocked with water, beer, wine, liquor and fruit juice. More to come, including how I lost my passport and almost missed a plane.
p.s. First snow of the year was this a.m. and made the streets beautiful. The city is very old, and careworn in places, but gorgeous. Pictures to come.
Love to all,
Thanks so much, Sarah! I can relate to losing a passport..sigh. Jet lag nearly killed me even when I was young. When I fly from NC to WA experience it then too!! Sure look forward to all posts. Margaret
Dear Marideth: Just finished watching Winter’s Bone. When this wonderful singer came on, I had to reverse and watch and listen again. Almost didn’t recognize your face, but who could forget your voice? I remember listening to you at Unity in Springfield, back in the 1980’s, singing (especially) “His Eye Is On The Sparrow” and being totally enthralled. I am so, so, so very glad to see that you are doing well. Blessings.
Oh, yes. Sue Crisman said to tell you she loved, loved, loved it, too! We are so very proud of you.
