Good Morning!

Slept very well, thank you. The gentle rain and rush of the canal are pretty conducive. And staying up for 4,350 hours doesn't hurt either. That's my buddy William's recipe for avoiding jet lag and I feel pretty good today.

I am staying in a lovely place. I forgot a camera but I'll see if I can get a picture or two up. The best part is the kindness of my hosts. I am treated like family by the family of my future boss.

I miss Skylark but have been adopted by the most affectionate two cats. Alfie is a purring machine who likes to be scratched and petted like a dog. Jenny is sweet as well. Maybe you better not tell Skylark about this, but they are helping out. (Riza: Alfie is all black.)

Take care -- I'll see you all soon!

Cats!!!! Cats!!!

Who are you and what have you done with my husband?

We drink coffee, sometimes tea, we love dogs not cats.

I hope those cats are taking good care of you.

Jen just called. We're eating dinner at Tulien's. She's coming after 4pm.

Love and Kisses,
Marie S. M. Rivera
& Skylark Mercer (named after the famous verser)
