Toodles for a few
Last day in town today. Gotta buttload of things to do including an early morning class and an evening class. Tomorrow is American Thanksgiving day and for the first time in 10 years, I get to be in America to celebrate it! Woo hoo! We're driving down to the Boston suburbs in the morning to visit some old California friends who now live there. According to Google maps, it's a 5 and a half hour drive but I don't think that takes into consideration any wait time at the border. I think I'll have time to post while we're there unless the house doesn't have a computer or internet. That seems highly unlikely since one of the boys still works for his California job, only from Massachusetts. This will be a new place for me to visit which always brings out the giddy giddy. Plus turkey! And Trader Joes! I can't believe I will be able to bring my favorite Trader Joes items home with me in the cooler I'm planning to take along. Now it's been a long time since I've been able to shop there and I'm sure there have been some product changes. Those of you who know, tell me what I should bring back! I think I'm overkilling on the exclamation point thing, sorry, it's just that giddy giddy. Also, we'll be driving down through New Hampshire and driving back through Vermont. I've never been to New Hampshire so that will be new though I suspect it will look a lot like Vermont. I don't think we'll get to Maine this time but that is definitely on my list, maybe next year? This has been a very traveling year even though I've got a pauper's salary. Los Angeles, Chicago, Napa, Mendocino, Las Vegas, Los Angeles again, New York, cruise to the Bahamas, now Boston and who knows, there might be a little December junket as well. Probably not, but if there's a bargain..... (Actually there is one - a 7 night cruise out of Baltimore for $549 for a balcony room. Unheard of! But we already cruised to the Bahamas this year.) Okay, I'm outa here. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Gratitude oozes from my pores.
