Hitting the road

In about 9 hours I will be heading north. To the Buckeye State. To see my daughter, her hubby, and the grandbabies. Car is almost all loaded and there is all kinds of goodies in the car.

Due to my unemployment status there aren't a lot of gifts, but there's a lot of thought in those boxes. We're going to eat good. I've got a boneless lamb roast, half a bushel of mangos, CHOCOLATE, a case of mango nectar, CHOCOLATE, an 18 pack of long necked MGD's, CHOCOLATE, wild salmon, CHOCOLATE, ... need I say more?

On the 4th we're going to Michigan to see the rest of the family. My brother, who I haven't seen in over 5 years will be there. That is why I'm making such an effort. Lord knows I can't entice him here even though he's in the Binghamton, New York area and it snows like crazy there and I'm in sunny Florida. Southwest Florida, where you never have to turn on the heat except for heating the hot tub.

I'm driving, on what the news is forecasting could be the busiest travel weekend of the year. Ugh. I'm hoping they're all gone and that tomorrow, Saturday, will be fairly decent. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Sorry I missed you while you were up here - I think I've worn out my welcome for a while with just about everyone I know :(
