Double and re=double...  January 27, and7...Dualism?  Dichotomy?  The natural pairing of pairings in elemental memory?  I know only this~the brothers were treated to twin exposures of certain meals which schtrike me spooky. To Wit, to woo:  >we were served two (2) beef pot=roasts out of crock=pots, one in FLORIDA, anothre in KENTUCKY. Both home=made.  >we were taken to two (2) irish pubs, both in Northern Florida.  >a niece in VIRGINIA treated us to bar-b-que take=out; her very brother took us for sitdown bbq as well in ALABAMA! Yum.  >whenever i cookt breakfast, i always served the eggs in pairs, whether scrammed or fried.  [wait! i always do that^]  >there are other up=evened things which will haunt my mind later...  *The upshot of this is thus:  if you're planning your own sojourn, be prepared to recognise unplanned coincidences as mirror=images of themselves, each. Apartly and togethre^^ sumpin like dat.  ~cals~

January 26th, and7...  Twenty=one years? Has it been that long already? Wasn't i just a young man calling bingo when CHRISTA strode out upon the tarmac to destiny? i miss them more than i miss the last twenty=one days.  One of which was spent actually peering at the memorial erected to all of those travellers of our best new age, turning as it does on a track which faces/folloes Helios. And such a tiny, fragile planet on which we live where brothers can drive to such a sunny Cape...    ~slac~

Thursday, January 25th, and7...  ROAD=TRIP disclaimers:  Wheresoever We travelled there was good and bad news. The engineer and i were not causes of such Matters, merely witnesses as we passed thru Time and Space. This^ disclaimer includes but is not Limited to... Southern Sports Results, Unusual Weathre Patterns, general unrest in the werld at large NOR the demises of celebrities. [both of us were saddened by the losses of YVONNE DE CARLO, ART BUCHWALD & RON CAREY]  That is~we could take credit for wondrous Miracles upon the way, but we were only praying for smooth high=ways and reliable directions to our next best inflatable bedroom.  And, as the engineer said more than once,"Hey, bud...there's a black sedan in your drive=way; do you see it?"  ~slacWhoArrifesbyNight~

Wednesday, 24 January, AndSeven...  Initially, we travelled to re=establish contax with far=off relatifs. Ultimately, we moved thru the werld to discover our animal cousins. KAPPA, the shih-tzu was the most recent & the most fun. Unkadanny also has a shih-tzu named FLUFFY, who is getting on in dog=years. ANNIEBANANIE has a fine kitten called GWYNN. MOMMACAT and FURBALL live on the lake=side porch in Western Carolina...along with brazen coons and opossums. The largest ménagerie of the trip belonged to a friend of the Engineer who resides in rural GEORGIA; he had more cats & dogs than i could count along with roosters and chickens penned in the Yard.  To say nothing of all the othre wondrous birds & alligators i saw out of the corners of my Eyes. Well, that's^ the pet=report of the Sojourn, as near as i amember it.  ~puppies&kittensLoveSlac~

Tuesday, January 23, 2007...  Hane used to say,"I love to travel but it sure feels good to get back Home." veritas  The engineer and i just barrel=aced thru Pennsy from WEST to EAST today. I, for my part, drove thru four (4) tunnels! WE spent this past week=end with our LOUISVILLE cousins; and just afore that, WE visited Ron & Alan in ASHEVILLE...and toured anothre famous author's home. It was a long circuit, this southern sojourn of the second sons, but Glorious and Wonderful all=to. I'll write more about it as i complacent myself of the epic retourn.  PRAY, dear friends, for CAT's patriarch who is struggling mightily at the big hospital with many ailments. WE love him so...
