Anniversary Dinner With Family
20 November 2008 | Omaha, Nebraska
Really really cold
This picture shows (from left to right) Brother in law Andrew, sister Kimberly, niece Brenna, nephew Brett, niece Sydney, and me. Andrew and Kimberly honored their 19th wedding anniversary by including all the kids in their fancy dinner. That is so like them. How lucky are Jake, Anne and I to have immediate family in Nebraska and California and Arizona that are all so great.
I am blogging presently from the Holiday RV Park in North Platte, Nebraska, about 300 miles west of Omaha. It's supposed to get down to the teens tonight, colder with the windchill factor. So nice to be hooked up with electricity. I've got the new electric space heater going full tilt but the propane ducted heat system is still going on frequently to keep us warm and toasty. This place has 80 cable channels and the Rebounder has two cable-ready tv sets, so we're styling tonight. For $24 it's just not worth it to stay at the Walmart and run the generator to supplement the house batteries. Tomorrow we'll be heading on to Denver to hopefully visit childhood friends Brett and Heather and their two girls.
To the kind blog groupie who pointed out that I seem happier on land than cruising in the Bahamas... I think you may be right and I'm sorry for my defensiveness. Sometimes the truth hurts a little. Blog groupies are entitled to keep me real. I love cruising and adventure and I'm sure there will be many more adventures ahead... but I think I love being with family and friends and dry land even more. Now if I could somehow manage to combine the two, that would be something truly special. All in due time.
