Travel Plans And Squirrels

Yesterday was another one of the those “winter” days.  It was damp and cold for w*rking outside.  Even Mainer’s are whining about the cold with some of them going to the closet and breaking out their winter duds.  The temperatures are definitely below average for this time of year in Vacationland.  We’re in a “weather block” situation with this inclement weather just sitting on top of us.  The weather dudes say it’s gonna be another couple of weeks before we break free, however, the temperatures may improve a little.  Supposedly we’ll see the sun a little bit more over the next couple of days before reverting back to rain.  We’ll see!!

We finalized the rest of our summer travel plans which means that we tentatively know where we are going to be and when we are going to be there.  When we leave Maine, we’ll go to Hancock, New Hampshire for several days so we can get another grand kid fix. 

Our original plans called for a trip to the Cape to see my aunt, however, she is not going to be there, but will be with her daughter (my cousin’s) in Litchfield, Connecticut.  So, in a conversation with Cheryl, we will be able to park at her house; they have seven acres with several parking spaces available.

From there, it will be a one day’s drive to Lickdale, Pennsylvania where we’ll spend three nights which will give us an opportunity to meet up with Randy and Terry.  Then it will be off to a county campground in Manassas, Virginia for a couple of nights before going to Prince William Forest to w*rk in the visitor’s center for a month.

Now, even though these plans are “finalized”, they are still etched in putty and subject to change as our whims kick in.  So there ya go!

Even though the weather has been cooler, the squirrels have been playing outside.  There is a big pine tree right outside our dining room window.  The squirrels must have a “nest” in that tree because they are up and down the tree all day long.  Alex has been “going nuts” watching them.  He thinks it’s better than bird watching while he sits on the table and chatters at them.  Katie, on the other hand, doesn’t give a damn, my dear.  She’s just not interested in a rat like animal that hasn’t bathed.  I could care less about the squirrels just as long as they stay away from our truck’s engine.

Take Care Until Next Time  - - - - - - -
