It's time Jan got a little payback for taking such great care of me after having total hip replacement surgery on December 27th. Without her help I would have gone to a rehab facility rather than home. It sure was nice to go home. She treated my surgical wound every day until the staples were removed and the doctor was amazed how well it had healed. She waited on me hand and foot...literally. I couldn't put a sock or shoe on my right foot for over 3 weeks.
So, this little trip is a bit of a thank you to her. We have done quite a few winter trips to nice warm places for longer than this one in the past years since my retirement and we were planning a trip to Tahiti and Bora Bora with our friends the Flahertys. But, the surgeon said it was time for a new hip. Jan, being the wiser of us, decided that it would not be a good idea to make all the plans and reservations with the hip recovery going on. As it turns out Marilyn badly broke her wrist right after my surgery, so it was good that we scrapped the Tahiti plans. We've decided we will definitely make that trip next winter.
This won't be too adventurous or unique, but we'll have a great time with Dan and Marilyn. And maybe we'll get a bit of last summer's tan back.
I worked over 40 years with the dream that some day I would have the chance to enjoy the freedom of retirement at a relatively early age. I was fortunate enough to achieve it in 2005. God Bless America!
Many of the states I've visited and three countries (Korea, Fiji and Mexico) I was fortunate enough to visit on business related trips (mostly for entertainment!).
I'm going to start these blogs with my trip of a lifetime, my road trip to Alaska and back.
