We're currently in Corola North Caroline. This was preceded by a stop in Homerville Ohio. I know you think de-I is barnstorming the 'states in play' for his nascent Emperor of the Universe campaign.
But no we're on a visit to family. My brother has rented this humongous house on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The recent tropical storm did not effect things too badly and their doesn't seem to be anything else coming up that will spoil things. This was a great opportunity to see my brother, sister-in-law, my two grown nieces and nephew-in-law. And as we were on our way east we decided to stop in and see Wife's older brother and his wife.
We had a real nice time in Ohio. The brother and sister-in-law read extensively so we had all kinds of deep conversations. They also live in the country in an Amish area where all kinds of food stuffs just seem to be so tasty. It's probably all my imagination.
Before we left, I was telling a number of people about doing this as I have a business things that need to be coordinated when I come back. They all said "that sounds like such a nice trip you're going to be taking."
I replied, "Oh this isn't really a trip. It's only 10 days long. We don't really call something a trip unless it's at least 3 weeks to a month."
I learned this type of comment does not endear you to many people.
