Lost in Santa Fe

I see I have been dropped from the author list on Graz Metblogs and that is probably justified. I have been out of town for a few months and haven’t written in a while. From the looks of it not many other people have been writing either. Bummer. This is a great forum and I wish it would catch on here.

So, I had to go to Santa Fe, New Mexico in the (scary) United States of Amerika. My daughter is going to University soon and I wanted to spend a little time with her. I will be back in Graz at the end of the month.

My wife tells me the snails have taken over our hoch beet. Although we seem to have plenty of zucchini, the eggplant and peppers are tiny, the brussels sprouts are non existent, and no one seems to want to eat our very nice broccoli. Crazy weather: yesterday as I talked to my wife, Reingard, for free via the computer on Skype, she was wearing sweat pants and a (pink) pullover. I, on the other hand, was burning up in 38 degree heat and sunny, dry skies.

Our street has been a mess for months; they are completing the end of the new part of the #6 line in St. Peter. They say it will be done by October. Thank the Gods. It has been dirty and dusty and noisy –not to mention the constant vibrations from the street machines.

Well, that’s enough for now. Will write more soon. By the Way, Is there Anyone out there, Anyone at all?
