5 days to go!!
 
I know it's 5 days, couldn't forget it's 5 days because my mother has been calling me every day, every single day, to give me the official countdown:lol:! She usually calls at the most inopertune moment, as well. Yesterday she called to tell me it was 6 days as I was in the middle of checking a $3000 order that had just come in. I'm poking my fingers into bottom round and she's going on about the weather and her petunias!

The woman is very excited. I'm getting excited as well, now. I love to travel, even if only for three days. I hope the weather is nice enough next Friday in Jacksonville to get some swimming in.

I'm curious to see how my dad's three sisters have aged. I haven't seen the three of them together since I got married back in 1983. I keep picturing them looking like the three witches from mythology that shared an eye between them. They were liliputian to begin with, I have a feeling by now they are going to look like munchkins:ohmy:....more like the lolipop guild than the lullabye league, if you get the picture!

Please don't misunderstand...I am very much looking forward to seeing my family. On my father's side, I'm the only one left up here in Jersey. I am looking forward to seeing my sister, too. She and I are cooking together for the anniversary bash. This is also another opportunity for me to introduce Lou to more family members. It give me the chance to prove that all the stories I've told are true:wacko:.

Okay, I should start packing now...

VeraBlue have a wonderful trip and please take pictures so you can show them to all of us.

This time of year it should be warm enough to go swimming. Enjoy.

Make sure you pack some sort of sedation for Lou, in case seeing all those stories in the flesh become too much for him! :lol:

I don't know which Jacksonville you are talking about, but if it is Jacksonville, Florida, make sure your hotel has a heated pool. We've had two nights at about 40 and cool nights before that. Our pool water is about 72. That is too cold for me and we don't have a heater for our pool. They keep the water at the gym about 90 degrees for the swimming and water classes.
