Good times were had by one and all

Monday evenings are usually with Amitesh. And then once in a while Anusuya joins in. I do not know why – whenever it is the three of us, there is way too much mirth and laughter that goes around. Add any one more person or subtract any one person – and it is never the same.

Drinking sambuca might have something to do with it 🙂

The upside of a rural living

More than thirteen years back Sharmila and I moved the daughters and ourselves from Dallas, Texas to Milton, Georgia. While parts of Milton has seen a lot of development after that, certain other parts still retains the semi-rural style of living. You know … like dirt roads, well water, septic tanks and internet thru DSL.

We have absolutely loved living in the privacy and beauty of quiet solitude of nature. It used to be that if some farm or neighbor lost a cat or dog, they used to staple the picture on those wooden electric posts and we used to read them up.

Lately, we have had technology like “Nextdoor” apps. But I promise you, you can bring in technology to us, you cannot take away our pastoral living though. Check out some snippets of lost pets in our neighborhood from Nextdoor… goats, pigs, ducks, horses and what have you!!!
