Back from January 2010 winter vacation

.

Thank you for checking in.

Frustrated by the failure of anthropogenic global warming to affect our neighborhood, we took off on a somewhat spontaneous vacation trip to Florida late last week; we just got back. I love to see the USA in my Chevrolet (2005 Cobalt), especially at the 34.4 MPG we managed this trip. The Chevy Cobalt has been a good vacation vehicle for us and we don’t travel light.

As a rule, I leave the computers at home when vacationing. It will take me a week or more to catch up on reading my favorite blog sites. Jeez, I take a week off and the stock market goes all to hell.

My legs are recovering from slight sunburn (no, I was not wearing my fat-man beach thong).

Greetings from Texas,
Great to see you back home Zack, you were missed. I hope the vacation went well other than the sunburn. Personally I swore off short pants while still in Boy Scouts for that very reason. The one summer camp I followed the Uniform Code I was misurable. That combined with the number of plants and animals in Texas that will 'stick ya, sting ya, bite ya or just cut you open' I don't do bare footed or flip flops.
The only sunburn worse than the knees was the tops of my feet from about the same peoird.
Anyway, welcome home.

Thanks Art.

I'm pretty much like you, I don't usually flip-flop around in sandals and shorts... I was always in the woods and swamps as a kid and (as you said) there were too many things out there willing to cut and bite you to pieces. Only in the past couple of years have I joined the other immodest flabby white oldsters shuffling around mostly naked on the beach.

Take care man.

Hey, glad to hear that you had a great time! Thought you had wandered off on us!

Thanks Jason. It's sometimes nice just to get away on a whim and toast my lard white carcass in the sunshine.

I'd say it is good to be back home, but it would be a fib since it is 9F outside at the moment. We should have stayed there another week ;)
