Vacations? We don’t need no stinkin’ vacations

“So,” a friend asked the other day, “where are you going this year for vacation?”

Vacation? Did he say vacation?

It occurs to us that we haven’t had a vacation since moving fulltime to Floyd County in late 2004. In fact, we haven’t taken a vacation since a two-week trip to Hawaiian island of Lanai in 1991.

Back when I “worked for a living,” so much of that work was spent on planes and in hotels around the world. When vacation time came, the last thing I wanted to do was crawl back on a plane and head for another hotel.
