Here are two sailboats around Stingray Point. Three would have been perfect for today, but imperfection is the new perfection.

Three Thing Thursday is where I tell you three random things and you tell me three random things--anything you want. A friend recently suggested I call this Three Ring Thursday, which is quite appropriate since my life does resemble a circus
Ready? Set? Go.
1. The other day Chesapeake Bay Mother was pacing nervously back and forth along her shoreline. Come to find out her goose, Gustav, was swimming too far down (really up) the creek with his Canadian friends. As no one might expect, she got in the car, spun out on two wheels, drove down the highway which runs parallel to the creek, turned into some absolute stranger's driveway and trespassed right on across their yard as she hollered for the goose to get on home. He did.
Details at 11.
2. Time is flying by at an alarming pace. Yesterday it was Christmas, and tomorrow it's practically Memorial Day. When did that happen? If I don't start doing the things I really want to do with my life and my children, it's going to be too late. At this rate, when I wake up tomorrow the kids will be grown and gone. Pushed in some obscure corner of the nursing home, I'll be drooling and slumped over--and that's if I'm lucky.
3. What are the things I really want to do before it's too late? What are the things you really want to do? Mine include things like taking the Chesapeake Bay Children to see (and hike) the Grand Canyon, Teton National Park and Glacier National Park. For myselfish, an Alaskan cruise, eating Vietnamese food just one more time, and documenting all our family and local history before it's gone forever. A glimpse of Bora Bora in person would be grand. World peace is sprawled out all over my list but assumed to be impossible in my lifetime. Still, a person can dream can't she?
Please tell me three random things or three things you'd really like to do before you're not able to do them, for whatever reason.
p.s. If anyone out there is saying, "CBW is having a mid-life crisis," I'd say they were right except she's been having this crisis since the age of 10 so it's really nothing new.
What has changed is the pace at which time is flying by and the realization that we are but a drop of sand in a sea of desert at the mercy and whim of an invisible wind.
