Things are getting back to normal around here, and now we are starting to plan the next trip in a month. We will be heading north after the 4th of July to Iowa, Wisconsin and then to the cabin in Montana until mid October. It's refreshing to think about, because it is really hot in Florida right now. Early morning is beautiful, though, for a walk, with a lot of dew on the grass. Kippy, the Bichon, is moping, missing her buddy in Ohio, Jeter. They get along so well. They teach each other naughty tricks like barking at the mailman (actually, Kippy taught Jeter that one.) Just wait until she realizes she has a 3000 mile trip in front of her, just after getting off of a 1000 mile trip.
After this last tragic Air France plane crash, and the talk about finding the "black box" in the tail of the plane to explain the last few minutes of flight, I can't help but think that with all the technology in the world, is it not possible to transmit this information, real time, immediately to place of origin? I don't understand why this is not possible? Guess I need to ask my pilot brother that one.
Heading to Tampa this afternoon to take our friends to the airport. On the way home will make our monthly swoop through Costco. For many years, we stayed away from Sam's Club, Costco, etc., because we felt it was not practical for two people. However, we have started comparing prices and quality available, and we really enjoy going to Costco. You need to be organized though and we never buy more than what we can use, consume in one month's time. That way, things don't get lost in the freezer or refrigerator and I have actually started a list of what is in the freezer and posted it on the outside of the door. It helps planning meals and like I said, it helps in not losing track of foods.
