Visiting the Grandkids

My wife thinks seven weeks between visits is too long, so she is flying down this week to spend three days with Alex and Kaylee. We'll drive to Kansas City tomorrow night, stay over night, and she'll fly out first thing in the morning for Austin, via Dallas, and I get to get up early as well, to get to work before my faculty meeting at 10:30....

We're getting the storage about cleaned out. Visited yesterday to take an inventory of what will go in the truck. Also brought home the next to last batch of books to ditch.

Apparently twisted my back at the cabin last week. Going to have to find and visit a chiropractor, I seems. Rest hasn't worked.

Regardless, it was a good day! ;-)

It was a very good day! ;-)

Too Busy....

Haven't written much, lately, because life is to full to think much about retirement, right now. We are keeping busy cleaning and sorting. Hope to take a car load of stuff to Branson this coming weekend.

Last semester of summer school and tourism meetings at work keep my days occupied. Had a planning retreat with the new dean with chairs and directors.

Life is very good, this day! ;-)
