How strange to leave in September weather, knowing I’ll return to December.

I hope I’m going to a place where no one’s heard about  Tiger Woods transgressions (doubtful) or anything about the Salahis (hopeful.)

Unlike most people, I will gladly sit at the airport and wait for the plane to take me away.  I will listen to my iPod, read one of the books I’ve packed, and mentally arrive at my destination before I even hand the agent my boarding pass.

By the time I actually get on the plane, I’ll have already had a good time.

Then I’ll do it again.  For real.

See you soon.

    Have a wonderful time. Take photos to post. It has been a long run since your last vay-cay! When you return, bring back many stories.

    What a wonderful way to start your trip! Do you do the same when it’s time to come home? Hope you come home to this same weather and not a foot of snow!

    Ya never know Ger, they (the Salahis) may be at the airport waiting for another photo op. Hope you got your Foster Grants. Have one for me in the sun.

  8. I know your not checking..but just in case..we just got 3-5 inches of snow on Saturday night in good old Northwest Connecticut….I hope it is sunny and warm where you are!

    And more snow today!! Boy you chose the right week to get far away from CT.

  10. Kathryn D. says:


    He certainly did! This storm was somewhat of a surprise. I thought by 7 am it would be raining in Meriden–but we received about 5 inches of the white stuff and it is going to become very, very cold! Oh goody! 🙂

  11. I hope you come back with some good stories, and a tan….

      I was going to post a couple of pics today…but when I saw the weather back home, I thought it might be a crappy thing to do.

      It’s cocktail hour. Oh wait, every hour is cocktail hour.

  12. Kathryn D. says:


    Please post your pics…it would be nice…we are all just envious….please hoist a few on our behalf!

    We miss you online and on the air!

  13. I can’t stand it. I haven’t seen Tiger play golf in weeks, and I don’t expect to see him anytime soon. I miss the Red Sox. It’s still 63 days, five hours, ten minutes until pitchers and catchers report to spring training.

    And I haven’t read anything new on your blog in a week. These are huge voids in my life. My guess is Tiger won’t be back soon.

    How about you!? Can I have your flight number? I want to track your flight back to Bradley. Pop the cork on a bottle of Cabernet as your plane lands in Windsor Locks.

    We miss you!
