Looking for the Silver Lining

If things had gone as planned I would be soaking up the rays on the beach at Puerto Penasco, Mexico this week.  A small group of my friends and I were scheduled to convoy south and celebrate Thanksgiving parked with our rigs just steps from the Sea of Cortez.  Concerns about coping with Covaid in a foreign country force us to postpone our trip until life becomes less weird.

Instead of leaving footprints in the wave kissed sands, I spend my days at online Banjo school.  When my fingers become exhausted from trying to imitate Earl Scruggs (I am not even close!) I seek serenity, wandering in the desiccated desert which is sadly no substitute for a shimmering coastline. 

Hiking near the sun baked San Jose River - not the same as lounging on a sun kissed beach.

Thanksgiving Wishes

Not to hard to social distance in a Ghost Town

Although the advancing virus is making my friends and I spread farther and farther apart, we are doing our best to cobble together some semblance of Thanksgiving.  I am sure you are experiencing the same conundrum – how to be close and far away at the same time.  Here’s hoping that each of you enjoys a safe and healthy Thanksgiving.  Can’t wait until we can hug each other freely again!

      Thank you so much for following along with me!

  2. I love this living vicariously through your exploits Deb. Cecile and I are still hunkered down in Alabama wishing all our friends and family a very Happy Thanksgiving and upcoming holiday season. COVID is currently behind me and I will be taking two of my grands back out to Oklahoma within the next week or two but then right back here to relax at home and sit out the Christmas Holiday. Stay safe and take plenty of pics. Thanks again for your adventures.

    Larry,
    Are you the same Larry that I met through Don Hill? If so, hello to you and your wife! I have been wondering what happened to Don….the last time I saw him, around 1978, he was riding in the back of a pickup truck, where I was playing softball, and he was drinking, holding up his bottle of whiskey.
    Glad you are well. Sunny sure is leading an adventurous life. I’ve enjoyed her posts. Charlie would be so proud of her.

    1. Hi Marcia,
      Not certain about being introduced by Don but I’ve known you from High School. I did a couple things in the choir that a lot of people knew about but not many knew exactly who it was that did them, lol.
      I can’t help much on what happened to anyone from SHS, as after graduation, I spent some time on our farm and time at the beach then left in September of ’69 for 8 years in the Air Force and only visited family on the occasions I got to come through. Married an Alabama girl in ’72 and worked as an Air Traffic Controller in the FAA in Montgomery Tower, Alabama after 3 years at Asheville Tower, in North Carolina. Recently retired from training Air Traffic Controllers at the Academy in Oklahoma City and moved back to Alabama so the wife
      could be nearer family.
      Can’t lie, I like the climate down here a bit more than up there. Cold does not appeal.
      Feel free to contact me, if you like. larmo21@gmail.com.
      Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and your Holiday Season is Blessed.

    Glad to get this one, was getting worried about you :>) We are, for the first time since we had the boys, having Thanksgiving day by ourselves. >( but that is OK if it keeps us or someone in the family from getting this terrible virus. Glad you all are taking extra care as well. Really enjoy the pix’s and most of the time I wish there was MORE. :>)) Love ya girl, and miss you, flew to MTV today for lunch and had a blast, but the good flying weather is going fast. Take care. GOD BLESS

      This year is sure changing all of our expectations for holidays. So glad you are safe and able to enjoy Thanksgiving together. Love to here that you are getting out and flying. With all the rain and storms there this summer I am sure working a fun flight in is a challenge. Love you both!
