Greetings from The Ritz!! We’ve had three beautiful days so far. On the way over Thursday night I decided to call Whitney and check on things. My phone was nowhere to be found! After a thorough search through my purse, I remembered that I had last used it driving home from work- and laid it on the front seat. Grrrrr... Not to worry, mom has her cell phone- except she forgot her charger!! A fine pair we are! Oh well, Whitney has been calling the house phone and keeping in touch regularly. I’ve missed talking to DJ and The Snoops, but I’m surviving okay. I was a little worried about an internet connection, but finally got that working too. So- all is well at The Ritz and life is good. Yesterday morning found me in an extremely lazy mood and nursing a headache, so I stayed inside while Mom and Dad spent the day on the beach. It was fabulous to simply lounge about and watch movies (between naps). After dinner we took our chairs and sat on the beach until well after dark. Ahhhh….This is the life!! It was fairly crowded today, probably more so than I’ve seen it over here. There are lots of cute little tykes over here, and I can’t wait to bring Leyland. She would have a great time. I really miss the little munchkins and can’t wait to see them. Dad brought some airplanes and windmills, and business has been good. He sold all the planes that he had, and only had a few more windmills left, but has made several more. Before I left, my boss asked me if I was bringing my bikini. When I told him I was, he laughed and said “I’d like to see that!” Well, here ya go, Dr. M. Me in my bikini. (Thirty five years ago!) Ha!
