I have made it official. Porwest is going to spend some dough. As I may have mentioned, we have a planned trip to Cape San Blas in the panhandle of Florida. We got ourselves a five bedroom beachfront house. Total cost? About $9,000. But of course we are sharing it with family and breaking it down by room. So the cost for the wifey and I is just $1,800. We will be there for a week. Our plan is to drive there. It's about a 12 1/2 hour drive. The halfway point is Birmingham, Alabama, so we will stay there for the night. Both on the way down and on the way back home. So, I went for broke and just said screw it. We have had a really good year in the stock market, and things are looking very nice for us financially. So the plan is to take $3,000 for spending. My plan? Just to have a really good, freaking time. And for $4,800 I BETTER have the time of my life. The trip is not until August. But man, am I really looking forward to it. Do you have any summer vacation plans? Do share. Enquiring minds want to know.

@porwest We're a lot older than you are. We get stiff and painful when we sit for more than an hour. And my husband's driving skills are less than ideal these days. We'd have to drive about 6 hours per day to get there in any reasonable amount of time.

I am teaching virtually for much of the summer--we just went up to Seattle to see our daughter's choral conducting recital for her master's up at I=University of Oregon. Two master's candidates and two doctoral candidates. It was a pleasure to see how her conducting has improved. So much more expressive! And after 15 months of lock down it was great to get away. Enjoy your trip!

Not anything like that but our church in Ohio is doing a reunion and we are going to that door the weekend after father's day. The hotel prices will be normal we just have to buy our own food while there We used to eat as a group but the pandemic out a damper on that idea for awhile yet.
