A Sorority With No Pledge Week

Dear John,
It's cloudy with the wind out of the north, and the Gulf has been very still today. The wind has picked up tonight - the palms blowing against the house sound like rain hitting the roof and walls. Tomorrow will be much cooler, with a high in the 50s. But at home it's in the teens and snowing, and there are no complaints here.
I love all kinds of weather on the water. Sun, rain, thunderstorms - it's all beautiful. The sea never looks the same twice. The balcony here would be a wonderful place to sit during a rainstorm.

I slacked off today - I slept in until 6:05. And I didn't go for a walk this morning. My legs were sore from walking barefoot in the surf yesterday, so I spent an hour on the balcony for morning prayers, and it was wonderful. Irene and I went for another walk later this morning. And yes, I went barefoot in the surf again. By the time I get home, I'll have the best-looking legs in LaGrange County. But I may want a wheelchair to get through the Atlanta airport!
I stopped to pet a dog during our walk, and met a very nice lady whose husband died last December. I seem to belong to the world's largest sorority that has the most wonderful people. And none of us went through rush or pledge week. We all ended up here against our will. But, as I said before, if you're stuck with something you don't want, you might as well be at the beach.
Adore you,
