travel frenzy

The Patient leaves tomorrow morning at 6:30 AM for his annual trek to visit family in Southern Ohio. I will follow next week. Today has been spent in a whirlwind of preparations, but I think he is ready. I have tried to do some advance planning to avoid the usual temper-raising, hair-pulling last minute musts, like deep watering the garden, cleaning the fridge, vacuuming the entire house, etc. These are things he
"needs" to do before he leaves the nest. After all, I AM going to be here for another week and can, if necessary, do these pesky chores. There's no accounting for compulsion! There will be a family reunion on the 25th which the entire surviving clan will attend. Usually about 75 people. The country side will be gorgeous; green and lush because of frequent summer rains. Unlike our dry valley vistas. Restful for the eyes.
