Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

If home is where the heart is . . . .

I arrived "home" from Hawai'i about 3 PM today (having left Honolulu at 7:20 PM Tuesday night). Hawai'i has become a wonderful spiritual home for me.

Tonight, I'm in Chatham, where my family warmly welcomed me home to the rectory - especially 'the four-leggeds' who were so happy to see me walk in the door they practically wagged themselves into a stupor.

I'm home tonight and heading off to Llangollen bright and early in the morning - the place where I feel most "at home."

If this doesn't make too much sense, that's because home is less a matter of location and more a matter of the heart.

Also understand, please, that I'm working on about 4 hours sleep - sitting at an ever-so-slight tilt in a very small, poorly padded airplane seat which was located right in front of one of the lavatories (so, about every 10 minutes or so, I awakened to hear: "WOOSH!" - whether I needed to hear it or not).

Here are pictures of my beloved Lenny and CoCo.

I'm home wherever they - and Ms. Conroy - are.

Lenny, the Surfer Dude with an attitude

CoCo, the Surfer Dudette, with our daughter, Julie

Glad you're home safe and sound, if more than a bit "flushed" - ouch, now stop that. Never mind.
Looking forward to some quality time with in RB. I miss Ms. Conroy.
The Boa awaits...
You have voicemail from others who wish the same. It would be such fun.

Nice dog pictures.

I am going to ask my guardian if I can get a swell shirt like the one Lenny is wearing. I think I could surf too.
