Wednesday of next week we leave for Georgia to see our son Sam graduate from Army basic training at Fort Benning, Columbus, GA. We are excited to see him again and looking forward to visiting a part of the country none of us has been to. Got tickets to a Braves game (playing the Phillies) plans for dinner at a local Brew Pub (fun for us and the teens) and reservations at the Marriot (you only live once....who needs to eat the rest of the month?)

So for the next few days I will be cleaning, packing, stocking up on treats for our teen-age house-sitter (filling the freezer with frozen pizzas and Eggo waffles). Also I need to make up schedules for watering the garden and feeding our zoo. This why we never travel.....such a lot of work just to be able to leave home for a few days.

ps. the reason we never travel is that it is EXPENSIVE!

Needless to say, I'm sure, but I hope you take tons of pictures and show us!! We're proud of Sam... and of you and Steve!
