When Jim began thinking about “retiring” from the Los Angeles Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG), we decided it was the ideal time to live out our fantasy of living abroad. We sold our magical Laurel Canyon cottage to a remarkably talented woman, put our stuff into storage and hit the road. And the skies. Because we’re going for an extended period of time we couldn’t leave the dogs behind. So two people who designed their lives to be childless and free of the accompanying responsibilities are schlepping two neurotic poodles across the US to England, France, Italy and Belgium.
We know you can’t bear to be out of communication with us for that length of time (ha-ha). So we thought we’d create a blog. You can hear from us. We can hear from you. Yes, we’ve reached a new level of narcissism by joining millions of others who write their thoughts and experiences down and send them out in cyberspace with the expectation people will be interested in their eating or hygiene habits! We promise to spare you that. Well, some of it. We’ll be in Italy and France. You know you want to hear what we’re eating!
