    Smile I'm A Bachelor For The Next Ten Days!!

    Dropped off Mrs. GB and my mother at the airport for a 6:00AM flight.

    They're going to visit Mrs. GB's parents in New Mexico.

    Mom hasn't had a vacation for a while. Some of you may remember that we lost my Dad last year at the age of 91. He'd been sick and out of it for a while and his third bout with cancer finally did him in. Well, Mom had been taking care of him for a few years and had made her life hell with his dementia and all.

    We finally talked Mom into getting away, and she'd always wanted to visit the in-laws (out-laws?). So she cashed in some of her frequent flyer points and off they went.

    So if you're in my neighbourhood and smell Cuban cigars and hear shoot-em up movies playing way too loud, you'll know who it is!

    LOL. Enjoy!

    I always fill up on shootin, riding (harley), westerns, beer & BBQ when Mrs. Whec & jr. go to visit her family. In fact I'm taking the whole week off this summer when they go, so I don't lose focus.

    Proceed carefully, very carefully! No disrespect to Mrs. GB, but that lifestyle can attach itself to you and spread like the mange on a filthy coyote

    You can stay up past 11 and eat junk food all night!

    Party hard.

    But just remember to be DONE cleaning up at least ONE FULL DAY before she's supposed to be getting home.

    You will enjoy it for all a day, then you will miss her terribly and want her back. At least that is how I feel when I am away from home, or my wife is away from home. Its nice, but having her back is even better!

    Know what you've been going through to a certain degree. My dad'll be 91 in August and mom will be 84 in Sept. They still live at home with regular in-home care visits by professionals. Knockin' on wood.

    BTW, it's been quite a while since I've visited a "neighbourhood".

    Just two thoughts for you...boxer shorts are the daily uniform, and all the tater chips you can eat.

    p.s. the final shoot-out in "Open Range" when played through surround sound and turned up so that guns sound like real guns going off in the house...is AWESOME!!! You hear the gun fire on one side of the room and you hear the bullet hit on the other side.

    Big fires out there! I hope she's not going anywhere near that.
