Chiming in.... another guest blog by Doug.
Our stranded existence out here on the wet coast is mostly a workaday experience very similar to our previous life in stix'n'brix.
An hour to work in cramping traffic, eight hours of stuff I've done for most of my working life and then an hour home if I'm lucky and nobody has tied up the freeway by getting killed or injured or both during their daily commute. Then do it all again the next day. Hmmmm... sounds like I'm depressed.
Well there are compensations, the children,
on the very occasional sunny day and as always Toni's cheerful face at the door.
We have made plans to leave soon after Christmas but that seems a long way off
....I am after all just a petulant child...... this song pretty well says it for me......
