Minus 10 (days) and counting...

That was the greeting in my inbox this morning from Big Ed, fearless leader of the "Evil Crew." Of course, there were two dozen other emails that crept in overnight, too. The energy and enthusiasm, not to mention the "bad deeds" that are being cooked up, is amazing. We'll be kept in stitches the whole week.

After several tries yesterday, I finally found the "Rasta Wig with Cap" that Dick is gonna look soooo adorable in...NOT!...at whatever party he is supposed to wear it. I also found a play-dress-up outfit or two left onboard the coach, so I don't have to shop for fancy new duds...but I did have to buy two roll-on duffle bags so that we won't have to board the Freedom with our stuff in trash bags (not that Dick would care!).

We met Dan and Joan for pizza last night. Sooo good to see them, and it'll be even better when they move to Mayberry for good:-) Of course then we'll want them to be in FL in the winter for when we are down here. Life gets complicated sometimes.

Dick has wrapped our two palm trees with white lights so that they look pretty at night. He did our bushes, so that made the palms look lonely. We're about to head out to look for lights to go under our table umbrella. Not the one covering the windshield:-) When we were out on a bike ride earlier this morning, he found a discarded satellite dish waiting for trash pick up. He asked the owner if he could have it (yes), so he now has parts for whenever he needs them, plus we met another nice neighbor. The boy tries to save us $$ whenever he can:-) Stop laughing!

Having fun, y'all!!!

Wow, I would LOVE to see a picture of Dick in that rasta hat carrying all your luggage in the fine garbage bags that could've been....that would have been one for the blogs!!

Miss you. ~Kimberly
