Dead of Winter Vacation

  1. Every year or two, for the past several years, Belinda and I have taken our Dead of Winter Vacation in sunny Key Biscayne, Florida.

    Last year, Belinda had just returned to work at Wrongway Regional Medical Center after having an ORIF on her right ankle so we didn't go. This year, Belinda just started a new job at Anomaly Memorial Hospital so we're not going.

    But get this, folks: I just learned today that... oh, I can hardly keep my excitement at bay... that I have been invited by the Federal Court to vacation in...
    East St. Louis, IL. as potential juror!


    EAST ST. LOUIS IN FEBRUARY!

    Sounds almost like a song, doesn't it?!

    I'll be sure to send you some pictures and postcards!

    Part of the fun of a vacation is planning it, and that's what i'm in the process of doing now. According to the information I got, I have to call after 4pm on Friday, February 2nd (my 61st birthday!) to determine if I should report on Monday, February 5th!

    I'm so excited, I decided to practise the phone call.

    Just got back from a long weekend in Florida. I needed it badly, but I'm jealous of Davey's impending journey to St. Louis. It doesn't get any better than that.

    I visited a popular hot springs in Alaska recently, it was -30° and the place was full of tourists.

    Hard core tourists visit the interior of Alaska in January.

    I am going to FL on Sunday.
    I will have my period.
    For every cloud there is a silver lining.

    Wait. reverse that.

    Florida is more fitting an exclamation point, anyway.
