“Today” is relative since today here is yesterday there to our Sweet Luke Briggs. Happy Birthday, Luke! We love you and miss you and six will be a magical age for you- I am sure of it.
It’s Friday morning here and Daddy is still asleep. I’m having the best coffee in the world- hands down- and the songs playing on the instrumental hotel mix have been these two in a row: “I miss you like crazy”(remember that 80s R&B tune?) and now “My heart will go on” from Titanic. I’m thinking these could be love songs from Daddy to this country. Clearly not a “miss you like crazy” as in you would describe in the sense of reliving those years here but in the sense of wanting to see it again. And crazy may be accurate for his daughter placing him on a motorbike in saigon this morning for a tour of the city. Ha! I’ll be on one too- not to worry. Driven by arguably the most amazing navigators on the planet. And now the song is “Nothing’s gonna change my love for you”. That’s right, Vietnam- nothing is gonna change our love for you. ?It just keeps going and it’s all just perfect. (And I woke at 3:17 am so I acknowledge that I may be making very little sense today.)
Congee for breakfast with the best coffee and music- I’m ready to punch the world in the face as my Grandfather says. Photos and update to come post-motorbike street tour. We miss you all and love you!! Jarry
