It’s finally here…we are packing up the family Truckster and headed to the lake for a Griswold Family Vacation! Yes, it’s a family vacation. Two parents, two adult children, one boyfriend, one daughter-in-law, one grandma, five dogs and a partridge in a pear tree. The cabin rental comes with a pontoon boat, so I plan to spend most of the week anchored in the middle of the lake with a book in one hand and some kind of fruity drink in the other (while repeatedly and obnoxiously quoting the movie The Great Outdoors – “What in the hell are you gonna do with a pontoon boat, re-take Omaha Beach?”). I’ll also be slathered in sunscreen from head to toe, as I am descended from a long line of Irish people who can’t even think about the sun without turning an angry shade of fuschia.
I still have posts scheduled for the week so please still drop by, but I won’t be tweeting and I most likely won’t be able to respond to comments or make any reciprocating blog visits until next week. Until then, I’ll be here:
