Good morning, Everyone, (although it is almost afternoon). I am in a car traveling south on I-95 heading for South Carolina. My daughter is driving, the two grandkids are strapped in the backseat and are incredibly patient and fun car travelers. Pour your coffee. Let’s catch up.
If we were having coffee together, I would quickly fill you in. The grandkids had a spring break last week and with no day care and the ability to work remotely, my daughter and son-in-law packed the car and drove to Long Island. Son-in-law had to fly back early in the week, but kids and daughter stayed. We day tripped to the Long Island Aquarium (reserved time slot), hiked in the Quogue Wildlife Center, visited cousins, and played with little downtime. Note the photos. Needless to say, I happily got little work done so I have little to report.
If we were having coffee together, I would mention that since I am now fully vaccinated, I am feeling footloose even while wearing a mask. I am typing in the car (not my favorite thing). The trip to South Carolina is about 15 hours. Sunday looks good for a beach day. Oh boy, I am having trouble keyboarding while traveling in a car. Blahh!
We made it! The kids were great during the 13.5 hour trip. Son-in-law had pizza waiting for us and, whew, I need to unfold my legs and back and perhaps get some sleep. I will sign off here.
That’s it, Everyone. Thank you to Natalie the Explorer for keeping Weekend Coffee Share up and running.
Have a good week. Make it Funtastic.
