      Hi Grandpa- my daughter works in vet field and said def. some blk lab. Most of my dogs have been lab or lab mix-- plus the one doxie ( Spideyman/Gismo) and Mack the Akita who thought he was a cat!! Labs have gentle souls and loyal to the bone. Lovers of cold and water.

        The same to you! And actually, Grandma and I are flying out tomorrow, so our "weekend" sorta starts then. Love Neil deGrasse Tyson. I mean, not romantically. I posted a "Neil deGrasse Tyson for President" on my blog. It was lighthearted, but I meant it.

        I won't lie and say I wasn't extremely green with envy. Our youngest is 16 now, so we are TTTHHHHIIIIIIS close to couple freedom. I actually had a coworker that was in Alaska around the same ti me as you. I think your trips overlapped by about 5 days or so. Maybe you crossed paths! :-)

        Glad you and the missus made it back in two pieces!

        When we became empty nesters, it was like we started dating again. Bu this trip - it was our first real vacation (one week or more away from work) in 12 years. Don't do that! Take time off!

        The missus and I took a 3 day jaunt in August. That was our first get away of any kind alone in a few years. Our family schedule is so nutso it's hard to get everyone together for a vacation trip now. We haven't had one since Thanksgiving 2012. I did break my arm and require surgery that trip, but it was fun otherwise. :-)
