Leaving On A Jet Plane

Finally the time has come!  This morning will find us on one of these headed East toward the coast and a wonderful week of vacation in Savannah, Georgia, a place neither of us has ever been before.
We won't be back until late next Saturday night, and of course I had planned to have all the A-Z posts for the coming week ready and scheduled, but most of you know me well enough to be certain that didn't happen.  Thus, I will probably be pecking away at them from the hotel room as I unwind at night.  Please forgive me if posts for the coming week are a bit disorganized, or I miss typos and such, though you are not likely to notice that as being much different from my regular "very polished" posts!  :-)  I am determined to continue with the A-Z Challenge because I'm enjoying it so much.  I'm betting that time to free my mind from work responsibilities will make writing flow much faster.
Rest assured that I won't be tied to my computer though, my son is coming down from Nashville to join us there for part of the week, and we have all kinds of fun activities planned!  I haven't seen him in eighteen months, so I can hardly wait!  My daughter wasn't able to join us, and we sure are going to miss her.  Will have to catch up with her later a few months down the road.
What I'm looking forward to most is walking on the beach at sunset, hand-in-hand with my Papa Bear and watching the full moon rise over the water.  We're going to take in at least one sunrise too!
Please understand that I will probably have very little opportunity to get around to visit your blogs this week, but rest assured that as soon as I'm home and have had a chance to readjust to the rat-race, I'll be stopping by each and every one of your blogs to go back and catch up on what I've missed.  I appreciate your visits, comments and support more than you'll ever know... without you blogging wouldn't be much fun!
Please add your prayers to ours for a safe journey and a wonderful new adventure.  I'll have stories to tell and pictures to share when I get home!
One more time, I want to express my deepest appreciation and love to McGuffy Ann for passing this wonderful trip on to us, and to Carrie for her great Getaway Giveaway blog contest that made this possible.  Who even does things like this?  Only someone with a heart of  pure gold, and both of these ladies have just that!  It's still hard to believe it's true... but I'd better get my bags packed because it's happening for real!
Josie Two Shoes is headed outta Texas... look out Georgia, here she comes! :-)
