Life is Precious

Coming home on Monday night, we were shocked to find out a neighbor was missing. Apparently the Police had been around, asking questions about when she’d been seen last, the divers had searched the river, and they organized a terrestrial and a helicopter search, too.

As long as I can stretch my bones at home at the end of the day, I’m happy with all the traveling I have to do.
