The other morning I was perusing the newspaper, as I usually do, when an obituary caught my eye. While most obituaries say, something like “John Jones, 87,” the heading for this particular one was “Harry Lengas, the Eternal Optimist.” I had to read that one through and take a second to say good-bye to this person who is someone I would have liked had I known him.
The Eternal Optimist…what a wonderful legacy.

We’ve had a weird spring. Usually, we go from winter to dog days without much transition in between. But this year it has been cool, overcast and rainy all the way up to Memorial Day. I don’t mind the cool. It’s the constant overcast that has me down. Oh, well, I WILL NOT complain because there is absolutely NOTHING I can do about the weather.

I have less than a month left on my Flickr 365 and I have mixed feelings about that. On the one hand, it will be nice to not have that obligation hanging over my head even though it’s a self-inflicted one. On the other hand, the day after my last 365 photo is posted is my next birthday. And that is something I’m not so enthusiastic about. But, as they say, it beats the alternative.

Greg and I went to the Red Sox game last week and came home with our very own World Series Rings. How cool is that?? Of course, the Sox lost that game and the nine surrounding it, but they won yesterday. I keep telling myself, the season is still young and while I don’t expect them to repeat with another World Series win, I do have hopes that they won’t end up in the basement.
Thinking these random thoughts made me realize how much I miss our blogging friend Nancy and A Rural Journal. If you happen to see this, Nancy, I hope all is well with you and your world.
