This morning I'm headed, with Marianne, Matthew and Andrew, (Cassie's teaching schedule this summer makes getting away for any more than a few days almost impossible) to Peaceful Valley Ranch in Lyons, Colorado. Last year we all met up at different times and from different places -- this year the four of us are piling in my 2003 Chevy Impala and driving.
. . . I like vacations -- with really long rides in the car . . .
1000 miles begins in just over an hour.
