Trippus Interruptus

13 Nov

Its an old Latin phrase that explains why you haven’t heard from us in a few days.  As I write this it is Wednesday evening and we have just left a great visit with Marci’s mom…in Philadelphia.  Yes, Philadelphia. Home of Ben Franklin and William Tell.  Home of the Eagles and the Phillies.  And definitely not one of the original Ahs, but an Ah nonetheless.

It turns out that last Friday Marci’s mom accidentally fell and the result was a fracture that earned her a partial hip replacement Saturday morning.  So in order to be with her, it took us the better part of two days of planes and a 2am car ride from JFK to arrive to see her.  She’s a tough old gal and will be fine.  But it was important to be here.

So we apologize for the delay.  Fear not though!  While we did not make it to Mendoza, Cuba is still in our future.  Provided all is well we will depart here Friday afternoon for Miami and head to Cuba on Saturday.

In the meantime, we will take in the Barnes Foundation while we are here and if there’s something compelling, I’ll post.

P.S.  I did manage to add the photos from Patagonia so if you scroll to the previous post, you’ll see some very cool photos of icebergs, and a few other nuggets.

    Speedy healing wishes for mom. Barnes is sensory overload – gluttony for the eyes – a visual pig-out. Too much of a good thing can be wonderful . . .

    So sorry to hear about Isabel’s fall. We saw Jake at the speaker’s series last night and he told me about the fall. Glad it’s not any worse. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Mom

    I hope all is well and Marci’s Mom feels batter fast. Wayne went to the Barnes last month and LOVED it!
