Saundra has been planning for a year – packing and unpacking for months – we have house sitters and dog sitters, people to clean house and people to take care of the yard. The logistics of a long trip would make Patton look like an amateur organizer. We alerted the people in the cul-de-sac about the folks who would be at the house so they wouldn’t be calling down the heat on them (like happened to my son when he showed up when we were gone and they didn’t know who he was.) I may have to also get a dispatcher to juggle the traffic at the house.

I used to think trips were complicated because of everything necessary to have kids with you, but it’s just the two of us now, you’d think it would be easy particularly when I do conferences a couple of times a month. Not so much.

We’re headed to a couple of speaking engagements followed by going to a conference in Estes Park Colorado followed by going on up to take an Alaskan cruise. Did I mention she has been planning for a year? The picture above was taken on our last cruise down in the Caribbean.

We’re very much looking forward to the trip. Saundra has made a reservation with a professional photographer for private lessons while we are up there so there should be some great pictures. Stay tuned, more later . . .
