My folks left home yesterday to wind their way to us. They'll go from Houston to visit a childhood friend of my father's who is dying of cancer. Then they'll take a lazy, circuitous route to arrive in Connecticut by October 1. We'll spend that weekend together, with a kung fu performance and Applepalooza! They'll wander New England and meet us in Vermont later for a few days there. Then they'll mosey around in Canada, Acadia, who knows where, until they return to Texas in time for my sister's birthday and the election.
We're looking forward to seeing them and hearing all about their escapades. Safe travels!
