Talked to David Newton last night for about an hour. He's doing good...just busy like all the rest of us. Turns out one of his former foster sons, John, was in town for the funeral of a former foster father and was having trouble getting to the airport. So, we hooked up with him and gave him a ride. It was good to see him and talk to him one on one. He's a good guy who's searching for his way in life...just like the rest of us travellers. David has another foster son now...name's Juan. We haven't met him but apparently he has a sense of humor I would appreciate. (That's scary!)
Great talking to David. We both mentioned the regret of not having the time to visit friends in far-flung places. I have no idea when I'll get back home to Pensacola or to visit friends in other places. Our hopes include a trip to DC in 2008 to visit some friends of mine. Most haven't met Sarah yet. But first on our agenda, and it is a selfish one, is to attempt an Alaskan cruise. We both have wanted to visit Alaska and we both need a vacation. After that little trip for us, we'll try to figure out how to visit friends and family. There just isn't enough time.
