Between dancing "Le Freak" at the reunion Saturday and going up and down Jen's stairs yesterday...I really need a massage....and time in a jacuzzi...and a Cape Codder.....wait! It sounds like I need another vacation, doesn't it?
I stole this from the wall of a new Facebook friend -
"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see......from Vicki Elam"
This is a great way to describe my plans for the summer. I am going to bum around and just be with people. My parents have two weeks in the family cottage in July and I will just hang there. I will read on the porch while Mum does jigsaw puzzles and Dad does "projects".
I am going to go to Kansas and spend time at the Castle Argghhh!!!, we will drink blueberry margaritas and lounge in the hot tub. I might even blow something up.
I am going to let My Marine take me shooting. He's dddyyyyiiinnnnggggg to do this. He swears if he teaches me I will love it.
If I can finagle it, I am going to dump myself on Mrs. Diva down there in the Southwest.
I am going to organize a visit to the Cold River distillery in Maine and visit the makers of my favorite vodka made from Maine potatoes! Grace, Jen, Mary Ripley, Beth Donovan and anyone else who wants to go.
I am going to go to LA with Gen and see her off on her adventure in Australia in late July.
I am going to visit the Garden state and meet my great blog friend Nichevo. While I am there the Fishmugger is going to take me for ice cream.
I will go stay with Jen a while and visit New York. I have never been to Ground Zero.
I will be in the Charlestown Navy Yard for every USS Constitution function.
Of course, I will be available for any thing the US Navy wants me for, including #NavyWeek.
If I can make Chicago, Blackfive and any Chicago-area bloggers and I will close a pub.
ConcreteBob, I want you to take me on a tour of the US Marine Museum.
I also want to see the Grand Canyon.
I am open to all invitations! Make me an offer.
