Brazil is Calling

...and we're on our way tomorrow! Actually, technically we leave Monday -- our plane to Florida leaves 12:30 a.m.

One of our trip buddies plans to swap or give away his personal stuff while on the trip. (Please, leave a pair of shorts at least, Denny!) It's a great thought! And wouldn't you know it -- today's trip to the Task Force thrift shop produced a brand-new sleeveless sports jersey for.... "Brasil 10." I'm in business! Several of my things can take that route, too...I decided not to take the best items anyways, realizing we're going to be in muddy areas.

No jewelry, either. Hopefully, I'll find some great earrings while we're there -- gold is supposed to be extremely reasonable where we're headed. (We fly into Manaus, then take the boat for 30 hours after that to the first village.)

There are a million things yet to do. The front and backyards look like Ma and Pa Kettle live here. (And Dave has the mower in pieces, doing a tune-up.) We still have tomorrow, though...we'll make it.

I'll be back in touch around June 7. Take care, and have a wonderful few weeks!

Just A Little Longer...

...and summer's over. I can't say I'll really miss this one. It's been full of packing and sorting, and dragging ourselves...
