Just a brief update. I am still waiting to go back to Texas. It’s been 5 months. The wheels of justice in Johnson County turn slowly as it turns out. They finally set a hearing date, but that was just to determine the facts of the case. Court will be sometime in the next month. But it will likely be a plea bargain that the lawyer will deal with. He faxed me a waiver so I didn’t have to go back to Texas for the preliminary hearing. Won’t head back until perhaps next month. It is all very vague. But as always, my life motto is "when life serves you lemons, make lemonade." In the meantime, I have been relaxing at my sister’s winter home in Apache Junction. It’s really nice here. This is my office this morning: and yes those are binoculars for watching birds. Cactus wrens building a nest in the neighbors Saguaro cactus, Inca doves screwing on the back wall, that sort of thing. I am here alone until my sister flies in on Saturday. Very peaceful. Not a bad way to spend the winter as it turns out. I am plotting my return to South America. I signed up for Social Security and will get my first check in July. Look forward to continuing my travels whenever the powers that be allow it.
