Get Ready, Set . . . .

We’re finally down to hours before we begin our summer trek.  Everything has been done and we are ready to roll.  We’d leave this morning, but our 242 home group is having a “going away” dinner for us tonight – a nice Southern Boiled dinner with shrimp, corn, taters, crawfish?, etc. all cooked in one large pot.  It will be fun and we’re going to miss spending Wednesday nights with these folks.

Today we’ll just go over our check list one more time and make sure that we haven’t missed anything.  It’s going to be a great day to sit outside in our lawn chairs, sip some iced tea, and read.  Also, we’ll get in a two mile walk and do a little visiting with friends who are still here saying, “See ya this fall”.

Well, it looks like the Gummint is definitely headed for a shutdown.  Speaker of the House Boehner is refusing to back down, Harry Reid is being Harry Reid, and President Obama is trying to make Boehner cry again.  In the meantime, we the people are being held hostage.  Yay Gummint at work!!!  Like I said last November, it’s going to take a couple more election cycles to clean out the deadwood.

Hopefully our blog entries will begin to get a bit more interesting with more pictures as we begin Wandering America once again.  So hang in there and be sure to check back with us.

Take Care Until Next Time - - - - -
