Wishing you…

Somewhere in Pennsylvania. October 2012.

By the time this scheduled post goes out, I will be somewhere in Pennsylvania, heading east towards New Jersey to spend Thanksgiving Day with family.  The house-sitter should be all settled in, ready to enjoy a few days by the pond and with the kitties.  She’s going to have some nice weather.  It should be nice back east too.

223: Flown the coop

We should be in New Jersey by the time this posts.  Hopefully it was an uneventful trip through the mountains and farmlands of Pennsylvania, and we’ve been having a great time at my sister’s house, visiting with her family and my father.

Any successful journey begins by packing your luggage full of imagination.
