Yeah, that's how they get you. <smile> At this stage my wife isn't going anywhere. She prefers to just stay here and take care of her cat and her mother. She doesn't want to travel. Her mother is 88 years old and she doesn't want to get too far from her in case she is needed. My wife is very devoted and loyal which is good for me too.

Once a year she has to go the PRSA (Public Relations Society of America) meeting because she is the head of the PR department where she teaches and the faculty adviser for the student chapter of the organization. At that meeting is where a lot of contacts are made for future jobs for those kids. Anyway she goes because it's her job and it's important but she'd rather stay home.

I'm sure Hawaii is lovely. I don't know if we'll ever get there. I'm sort of thinking "then a miracle occurred" might have to happen first.
