Well, we were going to wake up early this morning and go for a drive to the mountains. However, one of the maternity wards where Carole works called her at 11:00 pm and asked her to come in and work. So she didn't get home until about 7:00 am. No drive to the mountains for us.
Ate breakfast alone. Took Lilly outside in the cold air and let her romp around in the yard. Drank some coffee. When Carole finally wakes up we're going to visit her mom since we haven't seen her in two weeks and she's getting lonely.
Some day, I hope, we can retire and travel about as we wish. Of course this is the USA, where retirement is largely a pipe dream.
Cholla cactus in Joshua Tree National Park. Pretty to look at, but don't you dare get stuck by one. Takes pliers to get the needles out!
