Off For The Next Few Days..

It’s that time of the year. I will be off for the remainder of the week. I am off to a civil union in the glorious state of Connecticut, which used to be our home for some time before we moved. We made a lot of good friends in our time there. To use a well worn cliché, home is where you make it to be or where your heart is. So Connecticut grew on us not in a small part due to the wonderful folks we met there and also the fine times we had. The memories stay with us and the friends and acquaintances are all treasured.

One of our fondest memories are of this lovely apartment complex we lived in. It was sort of enclosed on 3 sides with a nice courtyard in the middle. It was also raised from the street level and thus afforded some privacy and quiet. We made quite a few friends here. All one had to do was go down with a bottle of wine and something to munch on and other would soon follow with more goodies. This happened quite often and led to many impromptu parties/gatherings full of interesting and fun filled conversations. Those days are certainly missed and fondly remembered.

It’s been more than a year since we moved and we have not been able to go back for a visit except for one quick overnight trip. One of our friends Ken is getting married this weekend .Ken went thru a tough period with the death of his partner in a car accident and has now recovered from the trauma of not only the physical but also the mental anguish of this most unfortunate episode. So I am very happy for him in that he has found a loving partner to spend his life with. This also presents us an opportunity to visit CT and all the people we knew there and hang out at our old haunts. The fact that we have not taken any time off or been on a road trip for a while also factors in. So we pack our stuff and are off. *A* has a busier schedule than I do, she has to meet up with more friends and colleagues. She is much more of a warm, nicer, people person than I am and has a busy Friday. So I have a day to roam around. I might walk around the town, take pictures or maybe catch a movie.

The civil union is in Litchfield county near the NY border where it is really beautiful. It should be a fun filled few days. So see you all Monday.

Have fun, jay & A!

Hopefully your marriage is strong enough to withstand such close proximity to the deadly marriage-destroying radiation.
