Saturday morning is gonna come real early...guess it's time to pack. Been making little piles - just know it's going to be like every other visit. Wait until late on Friday then cram everything "summery" I own into the suitcase. I learned to take extra swim trunks & Ts...learned that I can wear the same slacks & nobody cares or notices. This means more room for beach duds. It is going to be 15 here tonite & 11 tomorrow nite. At 5 AM Saturday I think it will be in the teens. Snow/Ice is north of the Ozarks this time, real glad we found a direct flight instead of having to drive to STL or KC or Tulsa. Wifey gets home Wed. nite, sure she's gonna love the decorated tree & my little piles of stuff to take. She brings organization to my life! Ready for the beach and sun and drinks and great food and relaxing and romance and golf and rafting and swimming and more food & drink and relaxing.....
