Off To See The Wizard

After my last run and the home project labors of Sunday and Monday which followed, my left knee was bothering me a bit so I thought it best to give it a few days rest. Now it’s Wednesday and I’m beginning to feel the need to get back into it …. but I didn’t this morning.

This was likely a mistake as our current ridiculously un-November like weather (68 degrees) is bound to come to a screeching halt very soon. I fully expect to awaken one morning to an unexpected blizzard in order that we might properly atone for having enjoyed (too much) this weather system which might be expected in Florida at this time of the year, but certainly not in Southwest Virginia.

But speaking of Florida, that’s were I’m heading on Saturday. Beth and I, along with the remaining contingent of the Virginia RFWDG, are heading down for a week’s vacation with the Bell’s, the (temporary) Floridian complement of our group.

Much is planned in the way of activities so it’s sure to be a fun filled week.

Among other things on our agenda will be:

Advanced Relaxation Techniques Made Easy
The Unlimited Benefits of (Swimming) Pool Therapy
Complex Cigar and Adult Beverage Studies
Uninhibited Snacking – An Unfairly Maligned Past Time
Expanding Your Intellect with Crossword & Sudoku Puzzles
The Never Ending Nuances of Narcoleptic Napping
Dispelling Twain’s Contention Regarding Golf as a Good Walk Spoiled
101 Reasons not to Shop – An Essential Seminar for Men
Shamu; Killer or Not - The Debate Continues

As you can see, it’s shaping up to be an incredibly informative vacation week. And even though it will be difficult due to the packed schedule we have planned, I do intend to get in a few runs as well.

LOVE that vacation quote!!! (Can that be applied to retirement also!???)
The Twain quote is priceless also-but being non-golfers, would never dispell it!
Have loads of fun!
