Vacation

My first beach trip in 4 years is coming up next week. The last one was my wife and I in Playa del Carmen at a five star all inclusive. This is a lot more modest- a private room in a youth hostel in Clearwater, FL with my 2-year-old along. Of course, back in 2003 we were both employed with no dependents- now I am supporting us solo. We've actually stayed at this place before 10 years ago when we were a lot more cash-strapped than we are now- for two of us it was fine but I'm a little concerned about how the Number One Son will deal with 11 hours in the car and cramped quarters. We're planning on visits to a local zoo and the Florida Aquarium. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the NOS reacts to the giant coral reef exhibit there.

Hello world

I realized with some dismay that it's been 10 days since I signed up for this site and I still hadn't made the first post. I've toyed with blogging for years now, since I've been reading them for over five years, but I still don't know what I want this blog to be. Perhaps Garfield Ridge will be my model- he seems to have a good mix of vanity and politics. At any rate, I have something up now- let's see if it gets any easier from here.
