Today is one of those glorious spring days that hurts. Here I am stuck in the house with this bum leg. If I wasn't hopping around on this leg, I would be outside today surveying my backyard for "holes" to plant daffodils for next year's bloom fest.
I also would be taking a walk on the boardwalk in Rehoboth. This is the best time of year to walk the boards in Rehoboth. The kids are still in school and the tourists are still at their homes. Late fall and early spring are the best times for us locals to enjoy the coastal pleasures of Rehoboth Beach. Looks like I'm going to miss that pleasure this year. But then I think of my friends Ed Cage and Wayne "The Cajun" Juneau . . . . their glorious spring days are gone now. Ed died January 27th and Wayne died February 17th, one day before I fell and injured my leg.
Wherever they are now I hope they are in eternal bliss and raising a toast to us still struggling through every day life here on earth and trying to grab a little bit of happiness whenever when we can. Here's to you Ed and Wayne.
