I'm on a much needed vacation this week. It should be fun. We're going
to Tennessee for a family reunion. My wife's family is getting together
in Gatlinburg next weekend. Leading up to that, we'll be in Cleveland,
TN staying with my in-laws.

I'm anxious to leave the flat urban area of Dallas and see some hills
and trees again. It's fun going back to TN and seeing everything we
used to take for granted. It's like we're looking at it with a fresh
set of eyes.

We're all getting excited. My daughter is anxious to see Nana and
Gran. So are my wife and I.
