Time on my hands

Obviously, too much time on my hands if I can take pictures of my feet. Actually, I wanted to show off my new Birkies (yes, Birkies, not Birkenstocks; two slightly different but related companies). I just fell in love with the polka dots and would have bought them in red if they had been available in my size. Today is the first day to wear sandals like that, yesterday was cool and drizzly.
Yesterday also was very busy. We, as part of a small group, met with an aide to a Bay Area legislator - all part of the effort to try and get that suicide barrier built. Yes, I found a way to get back to that yet again. And we had a business dinner that night.
Tomorrow is the second anniversary of Henry's death. We'll be on that bridge again, just like last year. Lamppost 47, 11:38 am. This year, it'll most likely only be Larry and I and possibly his sister and her husband. There'll be a mass said for him early in the morning and we'll be there, too. But I think this'll be the last one (unless, of course, I change my mind).

How'd the aide take it?

My heart is with you. May 2nd was the 15th anniversary of my daughter's death by suicide. Does it get easier to bear? Sometimes, but this is not one of those years. Bless you both.

Great Birkies! I love my Birkies & Birkenstocks both.

I'm glad you were able to get back to something you're so passionate about.

Will be thinking of you tomorrow ...

Thank you all. I don't know if you all realize how much your support, your kind words, your thoughts and prayers mean to me and have meant to me over the last two years.
And, Marilee, I answered that question in an email, I hope.
