Now that I’m working again, it seems a bit hard to come home and write, especially after doing it for hours at a time and having few precious hours left in the day to hang with the Grendel dog. But enough whining. It’s been a great month back on the job. I still feel for those who are still looking for work but I have to say it’s nice to be able to think about spending a little money.

So what to buy? Part of me wants to get a big screen TV, but that’s going to have to wait. Another part of me wants to redecorate the kitchen, fix the leaks, and bring things up to date. And then there’s the part that wants to see the world. So it’s between watching the Travel Channel on a huge screen while cooking new dishes learned from the Food Network in my new kitchen or experiencing those places myself while others cook for me. Hmmmm. Me thinks we will be putting more stamps in the passport. Where to go, where to go?

Any ideas? I’m thinking Nova Scotia, Alaska, Israel, Africa (safari), the Galapagos Islands, China, Italy, and I can’t keep France off the list even though I’ve been there before. What do you think? Any special stories from places you’ve visited? Because until I get that savings account built up I need to live vicariously through other adventurers like you.

Love life, experience it, and see the world—be it in person, through books, or through the TV. Au Revoir, elalleqa, Hagoonea’, Auf Wiedersehen, Sayonara, Ciao, Shalom, Adios, Do svidan’ya, and Slan.
