I am taking a vacation day for some much needed R & R. It’s been a rough six months with very little down time between work, house, kits, yard, dog, parents, etc. Bonnie and I plan to spend the day doing shops, eating lunch, and relaxing. I have not had much of a break since our last road trip back in April.
Tonight I am meeting mom, Frances, Al, and some others from the same group who met last week for dinner which includes our friend Brian. His birthday is July 23rd. For several years our family plus Brian and sometimes the big group go out for dinner to celebrate the combined birthdays. Tonight we will honor dad and celebrate Brian’s special day.
