Good morning my fine people... 

Finally I find some time to sit here and write to you all.  Semester is done, I've made my A's and am now enjoying a two-week break before my summer classes.  Tuesday was my last final and it is nice to not have anything on my mind but to enjoy the day without having to worry about writing a paper, finishing a math program, studying for an exam...  Needless to say there were times when I asked myself why the heck I am putting myself through this.. where I wanted to talk myself into being way too old for this "&*^%".   But now that I am all done, I am already thinking of my transfer to GA State University.    Life is good !

August is coming about faster and faster.  Jenny will be leaving us in August to go to the University of Hawaii to obtain her degrees in Marine Biology, Zoology and Psychology.  Can you guess what our vacation destination will be for the next 6 years? ;-)    Yeah, that's right... aloha oe  ;-)  Lewis will bring Jenny to her new paradise and set her up and make sure all is taken care of.  Julia and I shall remain in Hotlanta as I have school to attend.

Julia has been accepted to a really neat summer camp.  It's a language camp sponsored by the FBI, CIA and Homeland security.  She will attend this camp for a few weeks learning the Arabic language.   This is nice as I have to study that language myself soon.  She will also do her music during the summer, as always.  She is finishing up her year with MYSO (Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestra) and then join the one-year music program with the Emory University. 

We couldn't be more proud of our girls !!!

I will spend my short break before summer classes with some research.  For those who follow my other blog at Walk with Me know that I have had absolutely no time to catch up with my research after my return from Rhode Island.  I planed to go back up to Rhode Island during this summer, but, for now, there is no need for that.  My History professor sat down with me and we somewhat discussed what I should do.  I will be hunting down a lot of primary sources and build up my theses for my Ph.D.   So that's where that's at.

Hotlanta is currently treating us to temperatures in the low 90's.  Quite wonderful!!  Meanwhile, I've planted an avocado pit and it has become quite the little tree.  It is growing dramatically in the last few days and if it keeps up the speed of development, we shall have avocados by the end of next week instead of waiting ten years.  Crazy !!  You have to know, I don't have a "green thumb" at all.  So for this avocado tree to do as well as it does it is soooooo exciting.  Just smile for me !!

Let's see, what else should I update you all on?  Oh yeah.. Lewis is going to start his Master's Program as well.  Now this one is quite exciting...  During his program, he will be going on two trips.  One to South America and one to Asia (China, most likely).  Yes, yes, yes, I will be going with him !!!   You all know how much I love to travel the world.  Lewis can study while I play tourist.  

Well, now that I updated you fine people, it's your turn...  catch me up... what have you guys been up to???   Any special plans for your summer?  Tell me, what's new in your world?         tons of hugs and kisses and all that other fun stuff ;-)


  1. Transfer to more of the same, to what end Liane? I know in my business I have to keep up on things and go to numerous schools but if I didn’t have to… *laughs* I would be out smell the roses unless I wanted to save the world. But like you say life is good, we don’t even know how well. Oh yeah Hawaii I know I will be going back a few times in the next few years, who knows.
    I also have studied the Arabic language and something she must do is learning the culture as if will help you make sense of the language which alone is much more difficult. Why do you have to learn it? I must say you have WOW… girls, such go getters.
    Nice avocado is of the gods and so very good for you, show us!!! You don’t have to have a green thumb in your neck of the woods just some water. They have the best Onions in the world.
    Hmmmm both places are interesting and I could pass on China but South America hmmm where? That could be fun depending on the place.
    Here it’s all been work, work, and work but soon I might be checking on some North Caroline and Georgia roots.


  2. Oh my dear Sir Thomas.. how wonderful to see you ;-) taking my classes is just like smelling the roses for me ;-) I loooove this stuff ;-) I have to study Arabic because of... haven't you paid attention to my old old blogs? lol.. remember, Cultural Anthropology and Archeology is what I am doing... archeology requires German, French and Arabic ;-)
    Yeah.. i am pretty proud of my girls. I hope there will never ever be something in their lives to discourage them from going after the things they want.

    ha post shall be of my avocado tree ;-)
    I would love to see China; their culture and history... don't know yet where exactly he would have to travel to. But you know me, I shall share with you fine people.
    You might be checking on some NC and GA roots? as in Genealogy? or as in "visit"?

  3. I am older now, running faster now to stay in the same place... trying to figure things out. You - sound wonderful, as usual, and how cool that you get to travel, that is just the most bestest


What say you?
