Sweet Freedom!

In spite of every roadblock and obstacle that you can imagine, I SWEAR to you we ARE leaving for Phylly and DC early Saturday Morning, I don't care how much we are running behind!

I can smell it.
I can taste it.
I can feel it creeping ever closer and it is almost within my reach.
I will not be denied.

This has been a rough and busy semester, make that year. I am so ready for and in desperate need of a break.

Get me outta here!

I'll be out of pocket and incommunicado for approx. 2 weeks.

Our first stop is the King Tut exhibit. It is only visiting 4 cities and Philly is the last stop on the list. I saw it once about 25 years ago, but no one else in the family has. The kids weren't even born yet. We purchased advanced tickets over a year ago and everyone is really excited. AND, I've NEVER been to PHILLY. So of course while there we are going to eat the infamous Philly Cheesesteak, see the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross' house, Constitution Hall, the Ben Franklin museum and any thing else we can find that looks old and historical.

Next stop DC.
We are taking in all the typical tourist stuff. Again, I was there maybe 30 years ago, but no one else has been there. I've heard that the White House is still white, go figure, and they have a few more statues and memorials. Actually, I love that kind of stuff.

The best news of all is that my goddaughter, Lisa, is going to come down from NYC and meet up with us for a day. I am so eager to see her!!

While I'm in the neighborhood, if anyone wants me to drop in and deliver a message to George W., just let me know.

See ya in 2 weeks.

Lisa is so excited about seeing you all. DC is one of my favorite places to visit. One of these days I'm going to make it through all the museums but then I'll have to start over since there will be new exhibits.

Philly is on my to go to list. It has soom great museums.

Enjoy, enjoy and give Lisa a big hug from me.

By the time you read this, you'll be back in OK. So I hope you had a wonderful time, with cool stories to tell.

Maybe, if I'm lucky, you'll make a trip up to Manhattan one of these days?
