Off we go…

Apologies for the lack of goods around here lately.  The last few weeks have been a flurry of activity as I’ve scurried to get both my office and my family prepped for my absence.
After more than a year of planning, tomorrow is the day I (and a good number of RA fans) leave for a ten day tour of Greece

I have the fixins to make about 500 dental hygiene kits to be donated for refuge relief. (along with some school supplies)  I think we’ll get it all there with no extra expense since it’s now all packed inthe luggage…all i can say is “Space Bags”

I’ll check in soon from Hellas.  Bon Voyage!!
