Now realize that our first week will be with my Mom, who thinks technology is for NASA. I won't have any internet connection unless I go visit someone else's house who happens to have a computer. And then I'm rude enough to take time from our visit to sit there using their computer to sign on and write my blog. Is that rude? Depends on how long the visit is, I guess.
Under the subtitle of the best laid plans of mice and men: We were going to surprise our son Tighe by showing up at Thanksgiving dinner where he would be very amazed (and, we would hope, overjoyed) to see us. We had it all planned out. So two days before we were to leave, we got a phone call from Tighe asking if he could come join us in Colorado for Thanksgiving. Surprise! Maybe Christmas?
