Ok, it's Sunday and I'm still here. It seems a 28' sail boat on Craig's List has caused us a delay.  Which is a good thing  I guess because, yesterday he was gone all day with his brother climbing around all over  & looking at this boat. And I was here with stuff piling up to be loaded into a locked camper for which I had no key.  I was getting more anxious by the minute.  I could visualize him getting back, throwing everything on my bed in the camper (which is not made up yet), taking off driving until 10pm or so and when he finally stopped..I'd spend at least an hour putting everything in it's place so I could make up my bed all this while he was up on top snoring away.  So today the sail boat negotiations continue and I have the key to the camper.  This also gives me a chance to go thru it and clean out any unnecessary stuff that's in there. 

Meanwhile, there's no TV here today, I was talking to Comcast & found out that if you're gone for at least 30 days, they'll shut your cable off & there's only a $5 fee for the time you're gone. So I scheduled the cable to be shut off today & by golly they are right on the ball!   It won't be back on until October 29th.

So I'm off to church with my son and then back home to clean out & pack the camper.  And hopefully all sail boat business will be taken care of & we will leave town Monday morning along with thousands of commuters........

I know you were anxious to leave and get on that vacation. :) I hope nothing else hinders it now. You are going to be gone quite a while! I didnt realize that. I dont think I have ever been away from home for more than five days, when we go to Florida. I collect dust I don't know about watering those flowers down in the last entry...I hope you have a very tall plant watering system! LOL...Hugs, Kelly

So you missed the games.  I have to brag a little.  Man my TN Titan's are on fire.  Last few minutes of the game...Houston was third and goal.  Titan's intercepted the ball and ran 99 yards for a TD.  31 to 12.  That's 3 in a row.  I'm stoked.
Hugs, Joyce
