Earth Day Approaches

And Starbucks responds by having free coffee today if you bring your travel mug.  A small treat in a world of expensive.

In Poppy news, I just got off the phone with Poppy (and Nanny) not long ago.  They are waiting for him to be wheeled down for hip surgery - a high risk procedure for an 88 year old with a heart condition and a history of a couple of strokes.  The alternative (remaining bed-ridden and on pain meds for the rest of his life), of course, is also untenable.  He sounded wore out, but brave-faced, and told me 'I'll be feeling better when you're home the summer.'  I wish Newfoundland were closer.
