It has been a while since my last entry so let me see if I can remember what has been happening. I have spend a lot of my day at the computer, mostly with my WordPress blog. When not thinking about what to write on my blog I have been reading, watching lectures on “The Great Ideas of Philosophy” , watching TV, or working in the yard. One of the highlights of this past Memorial Day weekend was the successful landing of NASA’s Phoenix Mars lander. It is a pity that I was not watching the landing of men on Mars, but that is another story. I hope I am around long enough to see men finally land on Mars, no matter how long overdue. I went out to the airport in Windsor where the Tidewater Soaring Society operates its gliders. I talked to a couple of the members about Teresa, Dana, and me taking a ride on one of their gliders. They said it should not be a problem to get one of the members to take us up for a ride. So I am looking forward to doing that next week. I still plan on my son Jason and myself taking a trip to Yellowstone National Park sometime this year. It has been a while since I have had a vacation and I have never taken Jason on a vacation anywhere, so I am looking forward to that. I have also driven my Mother to the doctors for appointments a couple of times. Considering that she is 89 years old she is in remarkably good health. May she live forever.
