In our younger years, Checkered and I each travelled a bit. I visited Europe twice, Morocco once, Hawaii once, and 44 of the states. Checkered was in Kenya, Mexico, and Bermuda. We tentatively planned to visit Australia and see more of Europe.
Then we procreated repeatedly and things changed. We've never taken the kids to Disney, never even have taken them south of the Carolinas, never been on a cruise, never been to any of the indoor water parks, and all our family trips to date have been east of the Mississippi.
But, baby, just say the words,
"Dairy Maid is open for the season!!!!"
and we are there immediately.
Predictability is a good thing, isn't it?
