Max arrived late Wednesday afternoon driving a rent-a-car convertible. After a couple of beers, a plate of chicken wings, the barbeque was fired up, the potatoes baked on it and then three one pound New Yorks thrown on it.

Poor Max, he fell asleep after dinner. Korean time is 18 hours forward of California and he was tuckered out. At 2:00 a.m. I hear Max rambling around in his room. 2:00 a.m. here meant that it was 6:00 p.m. in Korea. Max has been up since then. Guess what? Max will again be tuckered out after dinner. The good news? Max will hit the sack by 9:00 p.m. instead of his usual time of 1:00 a.m. Going to bed by 9 will coincide with Dad's normal bedtime.

Today we'll shop. We'll buy Max a winter coat for the cold Korean winters. Lunch will be out somewhere nice. A whole turkey is waiting to be roasted for tonight's dinner. We'll have a Watson family dinner and invite the little old man across the street who lost his wife a week or so ago to join us. It will be like Thanksgiving in September. Come to think of it, there's a lot to be thankful for. Time in our busy lives is not set aside often enough to express thanks for the wonderful lives we all live. Tonight will be the perfect opportunity. Posted by Picasa
