Mike
Three months and counting........

Wild!

This is a really funny feeling. We started planning to do this years ago and at the start I wasn't really confident that the Admiral was truly on side with the idea. I had a nagging suspicion that she was going along with another of my crazy schemes and in fact she even said to me one time that if my health failed or I changed my mind she wouldn't be making the trip alone.

But now?! We are three months away and she had the house half packed and salted away in a long term storage facility and the property listed with a real estate agent who telles us that our region of the city is hot for sales these days.

Pinch me!
