Going Bi-Coastal


Toritto on the Masawa Road – Eritrea – 1965

Today I am leaving the virtual world for a week or so.

I am traveling to spend time with my eldest daughter, her hubby and my new grandson, Clark, now four months old. , I haven’t seen him since the holidays.

I am going from the coast where the sun sets in the Gulf to the coast where the sun rises in the Atlantic.

I will leave my laptop at home;  since I have no smart phone, am not on Facebook, Instagram, snapchat 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, comments 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

Regards from Florida.





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. :-)

    Hope you have (had) a nice trip. I don’t use any of the “devices” you mentioned, except the flip phone and Facebook. My blood pressure is spiking recently, so Facebook will be history very soon.
