It’s getting closer. One week from today I leave South Texas for nearly three weeks!
I can’t remember the last time I took a vacation this long. Well, that’s not true. The last time it was FOUR weeks, and we went to Africa in 2001.
(Shameless self-promotion warning: If you haven’t ever looked through the photo-journal I put together after that trip, click HERE to browse it for a bit. It was a fantastic trip and we took LOTS of pictures!)
Starting next week we’ll be visiting my daughter “Christina” (Joy), her husband Johnny, and our grandson Trevor in Florida. Then, after a golf interlude in Georgia, we’ll spend a few days with my sister and my 89-year-old mother in Maryland. (If you are a “horse person,” you’ll enjoy Sis’s web site.)
From Maryland we’ll head west to Chicago to visit our other daughter Amy and her husband Tom. Then it’s southwest and hammer down till we’re back in Texas and I can go into the office to rest up and recover from all that recreation and travel.
What? You say you don’t care about my vacation plans?
Well, can’t say I blame you. Why should you? I’m either bragging, or I don’t have anything else really interesting to write about, right?
But in my defense I just wanted you to know that blog posts here at “Romantic Ramblings” will be spotty over the next four weeks or so. Oh we’ll have the laptop along, complete with our GPS antenna and a list of all the free wifi hotspots in the states we’ll be visiting. Plus I’m arranging for an emergency dial-up ISP service for the times when we have telephone access but no wifi.
My main blog-posting impediment will be finding the time to write something of interest and getting it up here onto Blogger for you to see it. But I’ll try.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN, I never write anything of interest anyway? DOUBLE Hmmph!
So anyway,if we end up driving our golf cart into a river in Georgia, find ourselves attacked by alligators in Florida, get run off the road in West Virginia, or get caught in an early snow storm in Illinois you’ll read about it. You may read it a week or two after the fact, but still.
Oh, yeah, I didn’t mention this, but we’ll be pulling our camper and staying in it much of the trip. Some of the campgrounds (Georgia and Florida state parks, for example) have neither telephone nor wifi service.
Between now and Sept. 1st I plan to continue to post daily. Unless I get too busy getting ready. More to come!
