So Long ( for 2 1/2 Weeks)

"Travel is fatal to prejudice,bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."-- Mark Twain

Oh my gosh. I am off to Italy with my daughter JJ. (What was I thinking?-- Wait-- it will be so fun..once we board the plane I'll be fine...) She planned the whole trip. (Italy!) I assured her that I'd go to New Jersey to have her undivided attention for 2 weeks, but luckily for me she's a world traveler. I kind of hate to leave all five grand children (JJ's sister is here with her family to keep Chip company) but as my kids all assure me-- the time will fly and they will still be here when I return, as will Grandma Joanne for her annual visit. Also, Mark Twain was right-- nothing adds perspective to life than a journey out of the familiar. Wish us luck!

 I am not bringing a tablet or laptop (just an old-school paper journal) but will have limited email access on my my phone-- still, if I don't reply to your note until I return, please forgive me.
