Exciting news! I have been invited to the Oleander Acres Library on Saturday morning for the regular Saturday morning kaffeeklatsch of residents and some staff. I have it through terse verbal clues and non-verbal body language that some of the widow ladies here would like to check me out at close range. So be it.
I devised a plan for this gathering already while I was running this morning. It was my intention to tell y'all about it in advance here. However, maybe some hated, long time enemy defense lawyer in the civil jury trial business has gotten hold of the URL for this blog. He or she might then blow my cover with untoward results.
I will tell you all about the kaffeeklatsch after the fact on Sunday. This manner of proceeding also has the added advantage of allowing me to tell you about the triumphant success of some other totally unrelated plan should this original plan misfire, in which case this original plan shall go unmentioned.
More exciting news! Mexico Mike, my travel consultant regarding travel in Mexico, has invited me to his house in McAllen tomorrow, Friday, afternoon. That means that I will soon be able to post photographs of myself arm in arm with the legendary Mexico Mike. Also, he tells me that his wife still has the parrots, and he still has his wife. Therefore, I should be able to post photos of the parrots, too.
I love parrots. In Iowa we have one of the great parrot rescue operations in the United States.

With regard to that kaffeeklatsch on Saturday morning, I have only one decision left to make:
Should I wear my hair up?
Or should I wear my hair down and just let the freak flags fly, as we used to say?
Let's review those options.
I would certainly give serious consideration to your votes on this issue of grave import in the “Comments” section below. In fact I would appreciate the benefit of your votes.
Lisa, Wendy, Matt, Sarah, Ed, John, and Chuck, I am not going to make a fool of myself this time, so kindly spare me any comments along those lines. You can rest easy on that score.
Excuse me now. I need to go work on my tan.
