They are the kindest, and most generous happy loving family ever, and have helped me beyond measure.

    Madrid: a little spark of imagination that allows someone to picture what they want, who they want and where they want it. It was the perfect place for me to be right now. Although my imagination may have been steamed by the unbearable heat and my picture will never be complete, the base coat is strong.

    Why would I drag my family out to a place where it is an unbelievable 105 degrees each day, for summer vacation?  That is what this journal is all about.  Diamonds in the rough.  OOOOOOklahoma "where the wind comes sweeping down the plain."  Raised there also.  And so while I naturally want to see my family, I also want my wife and two younger kids to see where I grew …
