Boris said…

I don’t really remember what Boris said…but my son called me yesterday from England to discuss the protestors in America. And during the conversation he says…”Boris said”….and I started cracking up. Just to hear my son in another country talk about their leader just hit me a certain way and cracked me up. I always said I truly enjoy conversation and debate with my sons. They grew up intelligent young men with the greatest sense of humor.

One of my sons has been chatting with a girl in England for a few years and the online friendship took a turn to possible romance. So of course they made these plans before Covid came to town…I tried to convince him to wait a few more months but she was pushing him to fly out. My son knew he could easily turn around and come home… he flew out a few months ago when all this lockdown started and so far….it’s all good.

I know this isn’t really an important post….but I wanted to add some lightheartedness to this wonderful “one love” site.


The picture is of my son I am referring. My sons are very strict about using their pictures online….they don’t want their images used. But his face isn’t showing so all is good. His hair used to go down to his butt but he had it cut before this picture. This was taken in the fall I think…we were down in Coronado and he asked to stop at the water. He knows I love to put my feet in the water even if just for a minute. So he rolled his jeans up and he stood in the water…and I think he is texting the girl in question. Ha! I miss my baby boy.

  1. There’s been public demo’s over here in London, coming out in support for George Floyd. Thankfully, so far, they have been as they should be. . .peaceful but poignant.

    I love that picture, mobile phone?

    Your son’s heart has been stolen by a British Rose! Transatlantic love mirroring ‘one love’ philosophy. I like it.

    1. Hopefully you don’t have the alt-right groups there that we are cursed with ratcheting up both the racist and the violence. I am firmly of the opinion that most, if not all, of the violence is actually the alt-right in their never ending war on people with what they consider the wrong color of skin.

      1. I agree…I believe so too. But he said there were no protest in the small beach town he is staying in. But he did say…like Jules said….that there are peaceful protest.

    2. Yes…. iPhone.
      It takes amazing pictures. I do have a camera but I can’t hold it still enough. I do have a tripod….but of course I leave that at home. It’s not too fancy. But I like it to practice my skills and if I improve I will upgrade. My other son though….has a few lenses and a few tripods. His photography skills are amazing.

      This girl may be the one for my son. He had real issues before he left about her height. My sons can be a wee bit shallow at times. I asked….what if she really is short….he said he would turn around and come right back home. Again…their silly humor. He told me on the phone….that she made him happy. My sister who is working in Afghanistan told me to tell him…..if she ever gets crazy for him to go straight to the airport with his passport and wallet. Don’t pack anything…just leave. Of course that is what they are told when working in other countries. If you ever get into an accident or something happens just get to the airport and catch the next flight out of there. When I told him he couldn’t stop laughing.

      1. Hey, if she is really short, you know what they say….”big explosions come in little packages,” so he might oughta run for the hills.

        Hey, we were likely all a little shadow at one time. I know I was…now I think I would just about learn to live with anybody that was sick enough to want me. Well, except for a trump supporter, that is. LOL

        1. She is a little spit fire….he knew that before he went. He always would say she called upset about something…she blew up at her co worker…at her boss. My son is calming. He is Buddhist but also practices our beliefs…which… they cross paths in many ways. So they are opposite in a way but it seems to work….so far.
          And my son is extremely handsome….all my boys are. And I am not just saying that because they are my sons.
          This girl wouldn’t do anything to risk losing him. He is successful….handsome….funny….has a wonderful mother….. I can go on and on but will give you a break. Ha!
