Only 2 more work days before our vacation to Chincoteague begins. I made arrangements to have Shakespeare boarded and I have a reservation for a car with Enterprise. I want to travel in style and my old Ford pickup doesn’t quite do it for me. The only thing I can’t plan is the weather but no matter the weather we are going to have a great time. My son Jason came over Saturday and took me out to lunch for Fathers Day. I wish I could spend more time with him but he is a grown man now. My mother is doing well, although she complains about the place she is living in now. She will not be happy on that score untils she comes and lives with one of the family. The only problem is that no one is home during the day to take care of her and she needs care. So for now where she is will have to do. We took Kirk down to his Grandparents in North Carolina where he will stay for two weeks. So it is unusually quiet here for a change. I am going to enjoy it while I can. I have been busy looking at property to buy in New Mexico for when we retire there, even thought retirement is still 3 years away. I am really looking forward to retirement and leaving this area. A new home and a new part of the country to explore and discover is just what the doctor ordered.
