Going Bi-Coastal!


Toritto on the Massawa Road – Eritrea – 1965

Tomorrow I will be leaving the virtual world for a week or so.

I am traveling to spend time with my eldest and her hubby; going from the coast where the sun sets in the Gulf to the coast where the sun rises in the Atlantic.

She is expecting my first grandchild (a boy!) in mid-November and a baby shower will be held for the couple on Saturday.  She will be 40 in a couple of months and the specialists in this sort of thing indicate that everything is fine.

I will leave my new laptop at home;  since I have no smart phone, am not on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter I will be out of touch so to speak.  I don’t spend any time looking at my old flip-phone since there is nothing to see on it but the time.  I actually converse with people, have dinners, drinks, cigars.

So don’t look for any posts or “likes” from me till some time next week when I will return home to a couple of hundred e-mails and will reappear refreshed and rejuvenated on the net at the same old place.

It’s good to get away.  See you all next week





About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)
