drove back to northern Virginia to celebrate Thanksgiving, my 66th birthday, Emma’s 4th birthday, play on the playground with Emma, the Alabama-Auburn (Iron Bowl) football game and other duties (haircuts, medications renewal, etc).

We departed the next morning returning to Vero Beach to begin our winter adventure to the Bahamas.  Oh yes, before I forget, Alabama won the Iron Bowl over Auburn, so Terri gets to do dishes for another year.  Yahoo!!

So until our next update…..
