Big News

Any time a happy couple says “we have big news to share”, the immediate reaction is generally “you're pregnant!” Well, unless Dr. Snip didn't snip the right parts, our big news has nothing to do with a bun in the oven. Trust me when I say that Dr. Snip snipped something, it was torturous, and I'm glad I never have to go through that again. Our big news has to do with some excitement that is coming our way pretty quickly. As you probably know by now, when we make a plan, there are pretty good odds that the plan isn't going to stick. In the last episode of my usual rambling, I made mention of our intentions of sailing around the Northwest for the rest of the summer until the weather didn't want us here anymore. I had talked about hopping in the RV and heading out on the open road by way of Banff, Glacier NP, Rocky Mountain NP, Washington DC, the Everglades, etc...

Before I get into this little update, I want to respond to a couple of questions that keep popping up in my email's inbox.

Every once in a while someone has a terrible idea. Generally that idea comes from me and I do my best to convince everyone around me that my idea was great. My convincing doesn't usually work because the only person around me is more often than not Brenda, and as she will tell you, this isn't her first rodeo. I'm pretty sure it's not her first rodeo because she grew up near Spokane in eastern Washington and I think all they do out there is wear cowboy boots and ten gallon hats, tip over cows, and then rope know, rodeo stuff. Well this terrible idea that I am going to tell you about is luckily from someone else. I may have had a very slight contribution to the idea, but really, my contribution had a few degrees of separation. If you have been following along this blog or if you know me well, you probably know that I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I'm not going to lie or try to hide it because it's true and if you are fully aware of it
