We're headed here first thing in the morning. Don't you LOVE Astoria? What's not to love, really? I'm very excited to be going, even though we go a lot and it's only 2-1/2 hours from us. It is so beautiful, and has gorgeous scenery and beautiful old homes. I may come home with exciting news, but even if I don't I'll come home full of Grandma love. Yes, my beloved (he just turned 5) lives there and it has been a few weeks, so it will be great to spend some time together. We'll also be seeing some new friends from Fullerton, CA and they've never been to Astoria, so it'll be fun showing them around a little bit. (Perhaps a little antiquing for we "girls")? I'll take photos and post them when we return.
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!” -Jack Kerouac
