You thought right! Nuts, perhaps? I think not. I found a window of opportunity and some airline miles and I seized the chance! I am highly looking forward to connecting with aunts, uncles and cousins and various 4-legged members of my family!!!

Wait. I thought you just went on vacation.

You thought right! And I am headed off for another humdinger of a time!!!

Have a good one!

Yes, I did! Crazy, I know…but sometimes it is fun to do something different. I am headed back to the USA to see more family. What a great way to spend time: laughing, eating, talking and sightseeing together.

Didn’t you just go on vacation?

Yes, and I am headed off for another round—round 2..ding, ding, ding!!!

Have a good one!
