Okay Mercury, You Win!

Crossing the RiverYup, mercurial Mercury has had his way with my week already with 2 missed meetings in one day.  So we are following through on my previous threat to go hide away on a deserted island in a deep blue river far, far away.

"As a rule, retrograde planets presage a period of seemingly inevitable or fated events…"**

And certainly this trip seems to have been fated.  Last minute changes at work permitted Ger to take the time. Then when asking if we could give our friend Japor a ride down with us, he suggested we all go in his car.  Bigger, cheaper and, okay, a little older and riskier.  But hey if we went in a shiny, new rental car, that would just be tempting fate wouldn’t it.

Better to leave a little room for Mercury’s need to snarl things up a bit.  Besides it makes for better stories. Right?

So off we go to visit dad, swim in the river, and tell some lies.  We can’t wait.

    Hey, even if he finds me, I’ll just pat the sand beside me, offer him a beer and ask how his day is going.
