Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

Can't wait to get back...on the road again!!!

Yesterday, cardiologist/electrophysiologist appointment went well! They told me everything sounds good...exercise...and "see you next year"!! When I returned home, I spent most of the entire computer time finishing what I started before I left...tweaking and redesigning my Holiday Blog Template and Header. This is the result. Hope it works on all browsers. LOL

Today, I'll be doing last minute packing and getting ready to leave. We're gonna pick up Erik to join us since he has the week off from teaching. So, the weekend will be with partial family anyway!!

To all American visitors over the weekend...have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving. To all-------enjoy the rest of the week, and be happy. See you either Monday of Tuesday of next week!!! I'm sure there'll be a load of pictures to share.
