Where in the World is Toritto?

Some of you may have been wondering where Toritto has been.  Most of you haven’t seen me reading lately.

Well regular readers know I was in New York three weeks ago for the funeral of my Aunt.

I flew back to Florida two weeks ago yesterday and posted the following day.

That night, thanks to the inside of a germ incubating aircraft I was sick as the proverbial dog.

Nauseous.  Acid reflux.  Aches.  Pains.  A hacking dry cough.  Stuffy head.  I must say  the old man was down for the proverbial count.  I spent the better part of a week in my recliner living on chicken soup, over the counter cold medicines and Alka Selzer.

I was in no mood for writing or reading.  Just sleep.

Having no fever and not overly congested I waited for the airplane disease to pass.

It did and I am now fully recovered.

This weekend is Easter – my holiday.

My girls and family are coming (one arriving tonight) and Clark will be here Sunday.  I am hosting 15 or so.  As usual I cook nothing.  I call the caterer.

I will be back next week  to catch up on my reading and post some recent thoughts.

Happy Easter!  Best 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. :-)

    Sorry about your aunt, Frank. And getting ill. We came down with terrible chest colds after riding in the plane last December. Next time, we’ll have a box of antiseptic cloths for everything we touch.

    Happy Easter to you and yours! Glad you’re feeling better. Our home was sick between Christmas and New Year’s and then again in March. We’re glad that Spring is here.

    *The inhabitants of our home were sick. Our home was “sick” of Christmas decorations. Haha
