Off And Running Again

Yesterday morning Judy and Catia made G’pa some of his favorite chocolate chip cookies and then G’pa took Catia to the playground for awhile.  At 11:30 we took Catia home and “baby sat” with the three grand kids while Matt and Jackie took in an afternoon movie.  When they returned home we burned some burgers on the grill for dinner.

Isn’t it amazing how fast a week and a half flies by when you’re having fun with your grand kids.  We said our good byes and headed home knowing it will be another six months before we see them again – that’s waaaay too long!

This morning we’ll be making our way to Bull Run, Virginia to spend Easter with Mary and Joel.  It will be good to see them again since we haven’t seen them since last July – that’s waaaay too long as well.

From Virginia we’ll be pointing our noses toward New Hampshire and another grand kids fix.  We last saw them last August – again, that’s waaaay too long.  Having family scattered across the Eastern United States is not good.  Too much time goes by between visits.

However, like we’ve said before, this lifestyle is good when you have your family living in six different states.  If we were still w*rking for a living, we wouldn’t be able to see everyone every year.  But, we still need to convince everyone that they need to move to one state (IN THE SOUTH – we can no longer take the cold).

Well, it’s time to round up the wagons and head out; hope to “See Ya Down The Road”.  So, Take Care Until Next Time - - - - -


  1. Safe travels and continue to enjoy your family members!


  2. Have fun on your journey to the next set of hugs!! Travel safely!!
