All That Remains

The best homage is an empty pie tin

This is to pay homage to Beth M. Howard, thanking her for a time well shared. Not only did she share her world tour travel adventures, she oohed and ahhed at appropriate times when we dragged her around the city. We were ignoring the fact that she may have been exhausted from her circumnavigation of the globe.

Then there is again another thank you for the great time pie class, enjoyed by all who attended and regretted by those who did not.

Best of all, we are thankful for the pies we were able to sample and more so for those full-sized pieces that were left naked, and those that were later adorned with scoops of ice cream.

Pablo Picasso helps me pay homage with his blue period

The crumbs are all that remains. Darn, now I have to wash the pan!

Beth has flown off today for Stuttgart and then back to Iowa. Come again.



After completing my Ed.D., the frustration of finding a teaching position where I was willing to live, led to Ron and I leaving the country. We intended to travel for a year before settling somewhere in MA or RI. We left the US without any credit card debt, no car payments and our house mortgage paid by renters. We had $10,000 in the bank to make our way through a year.
