Parting is so sad (leave me your comments)

Dear Blogging Friends,


and please don't cry. This is my line:

I will be scarce until the end part of January unless we can find a cheap Internet Cafe on the QM2 or in Grenada. It is getting cool here so we had to go. We did get new bathing suits last Sunday.

So check for me every now and once in a while on my
Jim's Little Blog or Jim's (other Little Place) where I might could put up a word or two once in a while. This is my final goodbye for now.

Hope this soothes you somewhat (someone asked, so for sure you don't cry),

Dr. Jim

And Adi?

Adi can.

Adi can get her suitcase packed!

She doesn't like flying so Karen and Billy have her. Mitch and Carmen are keeping Katrin. Thank you kids!

One Single Impression: Stardust


Engineer in me

Engineer in me

stardust is hooey

The same goes for my poetry attempts (don't know how, but I enjoy it!).

Stardust, the song (lyrics) (link)

Singer: Frank Sinatra (
Writer(s): hoagy carmichael


And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that were apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust
Of yesterday
The music
Of the years
Gone by


Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song.
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you.
When our love was new, and each kiss an inspiration.
But that was long ago, and now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song.
Beside the garden wall, when stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
Of paradise where roses grew.
Though I dream in vain, in my heart you will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of loves refrain.
