LANDING ON THE LEVEE


It's not Atlanta, it's not Chicago, it's..............Cincinnati! The past fortnight, since returning from Knoxville, has been a whirlwind of hurling objects, heated conversations, clashing cultures, tears, resolution and preparation. It has been decided that we find a cheap apartment around the Cincinnati area for Zorro and take six months for the dust to settle. As luck would have it, the very first apartment he looked at was on the Levy on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River, within a rocks throw of the Aquarium! As you can see from the photograph, we can watch the Bengals on the left and the Reds on the right......with a very good pair of binoculars.

I think that if you just have faith in things working out for the best they usually do. You have a choice to be upset or to ride the wave with a smile. You land at the same spot.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Mary, you do have such a healthy way of looking at things. You are my hero.  Um...just don't let the 'apartment" thing go on too long.  BTDT--for four years--and it sucked.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and Zorro!  Lisa  :-]

I know you will make the best of it all in the long run...you are very good at accepting.  Hope you can be happy, immediately!  Good thing about
AOL is that wherever you go, we won't be missing you!  Whew!  That would suck! Happy Thanksgiving!  JAE

A very trying time for you. Life is an adventure. Jim and I moved 15 times in the first 12 years of marriage......we have been together for 35. Thinking of you.....Anne

Well it puts you further up the river, and according to my Human Ecology professor, the further up the better, at least where drinking water is concern! LOL!

A view I have seen many times, driving back into Ohio from the airport.  Great stuff you did there with the colors!
