Oh, good...I was so hoping you wouldn't be offended by it. How are you doing today?

Yikes. I hope you'll be OK. I hope the cysts are benign or not-worrisome!

Thank you! I am so happy. I remember two years ago, on our handfasting, I wore a dress that has straps. Indoors it was fine, but I do remember that we went for a walk, and all I put on was a sweatshirt and I was fine, for temperature comfort. I hope there's not a snowstorm or anything, this time. March 7th is our handfasting anniversary, but I'll be up there March 1-5. The weather up there can be so fickle!
Went to church today (the UU) for the first time in AGES. I'm really glad we did. DS behaved well, though he gave me a HUGELY horrid time just before that. I mean, just bloody awful. Then he turned on a dime and was fine I just do not get him at all. I mean it was HORRID. So anyway, the church-- we had a guest speaker and it was this guy originally from Czechoslovakia that was a Holocaust survivor. Just amazing, the things he had to say. Horrifying and funny and amazing, all at once.
I'd met a Holocaust survivor once before, a bazillion years ago, when I was around ds's age-- 11 or 12. My family was staying at this house around the corner from our vacation house that was being built, and he was staying there, too. I remember my mom taking me aside and saying "I will explain to you later, but don't you dare ask that man about the numbers tattooed on his arm". Still gives me chills thinking about it. That man was the sweetest, kindest, nicest, quiet, self-effacing man I have ever met. I have never forgotten him, or his name. He was old then; I'm sure he must have died by now. This man at our church today must have been around 10yo during the war! I don't know how he managed to escape!
