Finally -- back in the USA after three weeks of language school in Guatemala. I haven't been writing about it because Diane told me that she doesn't like everyone on the internet knowing when I'm out of the country. (Come on, there aren't THAT many people with internet access, are there?) And of course she is right. So I'm going to try to follow my new policy of writing about trips (unless we're all together) after I return. Don't feel bad if you've posted something in the comments about my trip. You were just following my lead. But from now on, please don't mention my absence unless I do. :) And now . . . there is so much to write about. The best part, of course, is that I was with Matt every step of the way. More later. In two hours I'll be back in Abilene. I think this is my longest absence from Diane in our 27 years of marriage. Can't wait to see her and Chris. - - - - Tomorrow is my day to get a call from Dickie Porche. (Highland folks know what that means.) Hey, Pal, I'll have my cell phone on!
