Apologies and a Portugal picture

Compared to last summer, this blog has been really low on the visuals. Too heavy on words, even for my taste. Sorry 'bout that. We'll try to perk things up in the coming weeks.

This is a view of one of the more beautiful parts of Cascais, Portugal, where I won't be going this summer.

Cascais is a resort and fishing town not very far from Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. My elder nephew and his wife and their adorable young Acts of Hope children live near Lisbon.

Oh dang. Looks nice there. We in the northeastern U.S. have been in a month-long pattern of clouds and humid blahs. Oh, for a truly blue sky and a fresh breeze!

(Oh look. My security letters are "mmwsh." Is that supposed to be my fresh breeze?)

Same weather here in the Southeastern U.S. Muggy, thunderstorms (at least we have the normal rains this year - last year we had drought), more muggy, more thunderstorms, hot, muggy, etc. Fresh breezes sound good right about now.
