Farewell, My Family and Friends - Next Stop, India

Still much to do, dear ones - but I have to return my AT&T Uverse paraphanalia
today so I'll be cut off from the internet.  I fly out tomorrow about 11AM - next
stop INDIA.  I'll be online there as soon as it's possible.

Thanks for all your support and good wishes.  I can't wait to get on that airplane,
to relax, eat Korean food and sip a nice martini.

Jeremy, my 6'4" baby can now relax, too and I know he's glad to be getting rid of
me - I couldn't be heading out if it weren't for him.  I enjoyed having Alex down on

    Sometimes I think San Francisco and LA might be even wilder than India!

    I've met the most beautiful yellow bird here in India...he comes almost daily and pecks at his reflection in the kitchen window. I'll post pictures soon.

    Leslie -
    Thanks for keeping me in mind!

    Helen -
    I'm amazed at how nice my flight and long trip was...I had no complaints at all.

    I need to get back to reading your adventures in your new home. I'm glad you have a pet for company. I'm enjoying Skip, the pup at my Indian home.

    I've had no real adventures yet but I am sure some lie ahead.

    I have discovered that India is no competitor for Napa Valley or Spanish wines.

    Sheila @ A Postcard a Day -
    I haven't seen one postcard yet but I'm keeping my eyes peeled. I guess I need to stop sleeping and get out more!

    Mickle in NZ -
    It is very dusty and dry where I am staying, not green and lush as I remember NZ. Lots of wild cats around, very scrawny.

    While your winter temperatures are beginning, it's at least 80 degrees here. I am appreciating sleeping under a ceiling fan that keeps the mosquitos at bay.

    I saw on Facebook that today is your birthday. I think a party is in order. I will toast you today with a glass of Indian wine ( on second thought, I will break out that single malt scotch I bought on board Cathay Pacific ).

    Tina -
    How lovely to see you here again! I've missed you.
