Lovely Short Vacation for Marilyn's Birthday!

Marilyn took two entire days off work last week. We spent Thursday at home, knowing it was going to be a really nasty and rainy day. But on Friday we headed down to our beach house -- the first time in ages!

The cats stayed home. We're just not up to dealing with them. Happily, Jim (our neighbor) was willing to keep an eye on them (and the house) for us. I left food out all over and fresh water (and cleaned their cat boxes) before we took off. And they had lights on and the furnace turned up. So I'm sure they were totally fine... (Sad note: June and Jim's dear cat Molly died this weekend.) Poor June has been suffering really bad from vertigo (a condition we share in common). I took her some of my pills to help, but medication hasn't seemed to assist her.

Marilyn and I went to see a movie on Thursday, and went out for a birthday drink. It was a fun day, too!

And we had such a lovely time at the beach house. There was one hell of a storm last night, but it never matters. It was great getting away!!!

I hope Marilyn had a nice birthday weekend and mini-vaca. She certainly deserves it!

I should be sharing more details, but it's time for bed.

Anyway, we're back in Portland again and ready for a very busy week at work.
