Another quote for you....

I heard these lines spoken recently.  They are a slight variation on words from Beethoven's Ode to Joy.  I thought they were beautiful.

As you can see I am back on line.  Thank you for your kind words of encouragement.  I will be trying to catch up with you over the next few days.  We had a thunderstorm and all power went out in the house, and so did the cable.  It took a while but everything is up and running now.  It felt very strange not to have any Internet.  As some of you mentioned we have come to rely on it so but manage I did, and I found myself kept so busy I had little time to think about it.

My son and daughter-in-law are coming over for dinner tonight, which is our own special joy.  I popped out for groceries this morning and bought everything that doesn't require being put in the oven.  Too darned hot for that.  We are not 'barbecuers', having gotten rid of our barbecue a long time ago after it rusted out with lack of use.   Another thing we can manage without.  As I said it's pretty hot out there, but we also have our air-conditioner back on line and though I don't like putting it on a lot, there are times when it is very welcome.
