"Gone but not forgotten"

My mind is doing crazy things lately and that is why I haven't posted.  I thought the topic of this post was funny -- go figure.  I'm working on several projects right now that require writing and I am struggling big time. I have all these thoughts going through my head and if I could put them together I would have a great story!  Maybe I need an editor. I know a few but they are busy. 

I have been traveling a little lately.  Went to Illinois to my 40th high school reunion.  It wasn't as traumatic as people kept telling me it was.  In fact, it was nice to see some old friends.  My brother had some more surgery while I was there so times was spent at the hospital.  Since my last visit I have had a new great nephew born so a visit with him was necessary as well as all my other relatives.  My other brother got a new Pekingese and since he has three they are his children so of course a visit to see "Charlie Brown" was also on my agenda.  One of my best friends, Pody, also came up from Champaign to visit for a short time. I was only there about four days but I saw a lot of people.

When I came back I had some meetings in Atlanta for the Alz. Association and also went to the FEDEX Cup golf tournament at East Lake for tow days.  Beautiful weather and lots of fun seeing the pros play.  Here are a few photos from the trips.  More soon.
