Wild At Heart
For the second year in a row I have flown down to Florida to help drive my parents back home. last year it was my father with his appendix and this year my mom had a reaction to some medicine. Hated taking the time off work since we are already down a couple of people but parents do come first and one must do what needs to be done. Wasn't sure if I'd even be able to start on the road since my mom went back in for a few hours on Sunday morning but thanks to the medicine they gave her that day (not sure why they didn't give it to her the last time she was in the hospital) got her good enough to start on the road today with good and bad moments.
Made it to Dublin, GA and just got back from a nice dinner to catch the news from the Boston Marathon. Always wondered when something like that would happen. Hope they catch the bastards and blow them up with similar bombs. Hoping to hear from my cousin who sometimes runs the race. My prayers go out to the people injured and to the workers helping everyone.
