Wow, We're Actually Going Somewhere

With the sun shining the last couple of days, I've got grass growing under my feet.  Time to get out of here.  As I said the other day, we are headed to San Antonio.  It's car trip but hey, that's on the road.  We are making a leisurely trip out of it.   We plan to take off tomorrow around noon.  With a four-day weekend, the border bridges are going to be packed.  People will pull their kids out early tomorrow from school to try and beat the crowd.  Come Tuesday and classes, they will not be returning either because they got home late Monday night or decided to stay another day.  

We will spend tomorrow night at the Ramada (used to be the Holiday Inn) in Laredo.  Getting there a bit early we will do a little shopping and sit around the pool.  Hey, I'm on vacation.  That way, Friday isn't a wasted day sitting at the border.  We need permits so the lines will be long.   Better to do it Thursday and get it out of the way.

I got a call today for an invitation.   I've been asked to speak again at the national convention.  This year though, all expenses paid, airfare, hotel, membership, meals, and best of all it's in Cancun!  So we will probably make it a week at the beach for two.

Not much else to report.  Anxious about seeing what is happening with the house in San Antonio and meeting with the accountant.


  1. Never say no to all expenses paid! Good for you guys!

  2. Sounds like you have more than one plan to look forward to. Have fun in San Antonio.... fun town!
