I haven't posted anything since we returned from Paris. Life seemed to change on a dime. In January 2011 my father became ill and we lost him on Feb 28th. I stayed with Mom until the middle of April.
Once I returned to work it was not the same for me. I reduced down to 4 days a week hoping that would help relive some stress. I lasted another 15 months before retiring. Now I am foot loose and fancy free!
The first real vacation I have taken since retiring was to San Felipe to visit our friends Roy and Sylvia at their winter home. Our friends Roger and Dorothy joined us from Bellingham Washington. We all had a fantastic week hiking, shelling, eating, drinking, playing Mexican Train dominos, and catching up.
