So glad you have signed up to receive the For Random Learning Comes Newsletter! This is the eighty-eighth edition.

Previous editions can be found on the blog's Newsletter page. I send it out weekly, so if you don't get my email on Saturday morning, please let me know! (Check your junk and spam folders too.)
I hope you will forgive me for taking a week or two off from the newsletter. This time of year lends itself to minivacations. I have also been waylaying some of my poetry and sending it off first to see if anyone would care to publish it. So I'm holding a little back at your expense.

This week I'm trying my hand once again at the travel post. It's called Beginnings, for short, as it deals with the first day or two of our organized tour.

I hope you will enjoy my rendition of our continued travels, if only for the lovely spots you get to see in my pictures while thumbing through the words.

Hope your summer is as lazy and enjoyable as mine so far. Stay cool!

Happy reading!
