Driving a convertible. The bipeds were bit by that bug on our trips to Florida. They loved it. Dad liked the sense of freedom and Mom kept leaning back to let the sun kiss her face.  Sometimes her hands would fly up in the air and she’d squeal in delight, making Dad laugh.  No one cared that their hair was getting messed up. Oh, the wind, the sun […]

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the travel industry is suffering these days. Apparently, we all have less money to spend on the perceived luxury of travel.
