    Smile back from the travels!

    I have been out of touch for just about a month now - the internet access in Greece where I stayed was a sad dial-up - and I simply could not establish a log-in with tweleve from there.

    I had a marvelous journey and saw many new and amazing places

    had a delayed return due to a late flight (Due to new security regulations which say if someone checks bags and doesn't board - the bags of the missing individual must be offloaded!) and then missing a tight connection in Milan, Italy. Had to stay overnight in Milan at a 4 star - compliments of the airline - waiting for re-booking! Would actually have loved this a lot if I hadn't trashed out my knee - aggravating an old injury from a car accident with all the uphill climbs!!! leaving me so crippled that by the time I finally reached JFK - I cried UNCLE and took advantage of the wheelchair assistant! NEVER would have figured I would DO that! but it was totally necessary! Got home a day late and had an early AM appt with my doc and started the repair process with steroid shot and massive doses of ibuprofen several times a day for the next 12 days! The knee actually is feeling some better - but the other foot - tendons are still excruciating - due to all the limping I did the last few days! anyway - to stop ranting and whining - I had an amazing time and have returned home with literally thousands of pictures to wade through - am looking for a site to host a 'best of' picture selection and working on a daily capsule report from the notes I kept while gone! Will try to remember to post a link when I get it all worked out for those of you who have interest in Greece - or travel in general - or are just curious!
    I truly missed being here on the boards and was quite sad to miss the last round of Netsirk's picture contest - but will try to jump in on the next!
    I have some time to devote to the endeavor of picture sorting - as I have been set on sick leave until at least Tues! lol - a week off to recover from a vacation! go figure!

    Hope you have all been well - I am relieved to be back - but totally psyched that I had the opportunity to visit there again!
    hope all has been well here and just wanted to jump in and say I have missed you all and am glad to be back in touch!
