"Happiness is like a butterfly;the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder."-Thoreau

Son of a son of a sailor

Finally, for the first time in three years, Cindy and I will be taking a week long vacation together starting this weekend. The Kendrick family will be packing up our game and heading toward the east, Myrtle Beach that is (hence the beach music being played). Grandpa and Grandma are heading to the beach with us for some fun filled days of swimming in the pool, shopping at the outlets and introducing Abby to the exciting sport of go-kart driving. The condo we are staying at is just a mile from lots of dining and evening entertainment so hopefully we won't have to fight traffic. While there, we plan to kill several sea creatures for dinner (shrimp, flounder, squid, crabs, etc.). While we are away we have scheduled Stacey Heiler and her pack of 17 dogs to stay at our house to keep things safe. Have a great week at work suckers!
