” Going Home”

November 6, 2016

Going Home at last finally after all these years! Just thinking after coming from the state of Maryland going to the Midwest, then traveling through it always thought inwardly about traveling to New York State. Again then traveling from Ohio to the long journey to Alabama again my thoughts were of New York State. While travelling along the scenic roads in Wisconsin, still again my thoughts were New York State. I leave in two weeks from today on a night flight. Actually wouldn’t you know that my two suit cases are nearly packed. Yes they are!
Have to yet print my ticket which will be done this week. Then installing the venetian blind in my room. It is already purchased. Have to do the rest of Shon’s house which is only the downstairs room adjacent to the kitchen and then the garage. It is going to be four people doing it including myself. Should take a decent time perhaps Called Social Security and everything is set up, asked pertinent questions. The lady was very direct and kind. Alynn my lifetime friend will send my winter clothes along with the rest of Andre’s items on the 19th the day I leave Georgia. Speaking of this state it was nice, scenic and people were friendly and kind.
Have to make a correction. I weighed myself and it read 82.5 pounds. I told Shon and the scale is 4 pounds off, it
is up not down. So the reading was 86.5. At least that is slightly better. Have been reminding myself to eat protein so I will get a spoon of peanut butter each day. Been doing that for 5 days straight. So that is something making an effort at least. Will be living with my son and his roommate temporarily, then getting an apartment of my own. In fact Andre has been looking for me. Then I will get an apartment nearby in Rochester. And yet I am here to stay. Never moving from New York State again. I have come full circle!

” No Good Time Than The Present”

October 28, 2016

Being that it is almost the end of this month, there is no good time than the present for expression of ideas. Time is going so rapidly that at this time next month I will be in my favorite state of all. It is namely New York State. Got my ticket on the 19th. Yet have to print it. Know methodically what I have to pack. Now it is cold and a bit of snow which won’t last there. Finishing up the yard work which was a joy meaning that I am getting needed exercise physically and eye exercise too which is important to myself. Watching the clouds that appear as mountains, rivers, and sometimes oceans in this majestic sky. Every time I hear a plane, a jet I view skyward. Atlanta is the busiest airport in the entire country.
Been busy every day doing something. Watching my friend’s kids, going to the mall, to the grocery store, talking to friends and relatives interacting in their lives. Spending time with Shon, my roommate and friend for over 15 years. Speaking of friends, I have close friends who are now my lifetime friends. They know who they are. And furthermore I can trust these friends wholeheartedly with question. There aren’t that many people I trust. My wonderful sons of course without question. Actually it would be great to take all of them with me. However thats an impossibility because they desire to be where they are. And whatsmore I can phone them anytime as they may do for me. And of course the internet it’s great for contact with others. People here in Georgia I find to be genuine and simply very cool. Have really liked it here. A very good place to visit if anyone reading this is interested in traveling to a wholesome place. Want to know a two secrets. Shon said”Grace I don’t want you to leave” Yet fully understands why. And I weigh 82.5 pounds. Actually today I weighed myself on the scale. Reason being I want to give blood! Am doing Shon’s house before I leave. She and her entire family have been wonderful and awesome to me.
