Tomorrow is the 4th of July!! A day that we used to grill with friends, tell Sea Stories, drink beer, and have fun. Boy, do I miss those days!! I miss my friends in the Norfolk area. I miss the Navy connection. I miss my Church friends there. I miss being in Virginia.
Yes, Azalea Trace has a big indoor, holiday dinner tomorrow. We will eat with some folks we are acquainted with. I say it that way because I have never made any friends here in Florida or at this CCRC. Since we are younger than most, there is no age connection. And since Linda and I did not grow up rich, with servants, gardeners, and nannies, we have no connection there either. And, since I am surrounded by Military Officers, mostly Reserves who never did anything, I have no Military connection. I am alone, lonely, and with no hope of ever having a friend.
I told my Wife that one of my biggest frustrations is things are wrong in my life, and while I can identify them, I cannot do anything to change what is wrong!! Life is much more difficult that I ever experienced before. I miss my life!!
Maybe I am just difficult to get along with!!
