I hope we get a chance to chat.

I am not very educated and very old — like old as dirt!

I am 70 and health is pretty sketchy most of the time. I said I was going to finish my story on how 2019 treated my heart issues. But that is not going to happen this morning. It is now 3.09 AM in Duluth Minnesota.

I thought myself pretty smart when I was young but that ended when I was about 40. Got grown up I guess.

Grammarly wants to keep changing the words I type. I must be trying to be too cute but I think it is mostly exhaustion.

I just sent a note to a guy in Croatia and earlier one in Ireland.

I can get used to spending time chatting. I don’t have any friends. I don’t see anyone since I’m cooped up in our apartment. But I would rather write anyway.

If you get a chance drop a line or send a text or email and we’ll set what merry roads we travel down.
