Midlife is really good

if Dogs could talk... "can I come?"

Midlife is really good! Yesterday’s post revealed a 53 year wait for my first swimming pool. Pretty long time to wait, right? You’ve waited similarly. And maybe even as we speak, you’re waiting.

Later today, I can’t wait to hear:

  • Are we there yet?
  • How much longer?

Being an elementary school field trip chaperone (and van driver) is one of the crowning glories in my 53 years here. Do you have one that’s similarly “uneventful”?

Today’s posts will be delayed. I’m fulfilling one of my bucket list items.

#4. Chaperon an overnight Elementary school (4th grade) field trip.

We slept next to the Manatee exhibit windows last night at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo.

Writing this from our breakfast break at 730am.

Pictures and stories (about midlife) are almost certain to follow.

Carpe diem.

PS. I’m back 12 hours later. We fed string rays at 6:30AM, Meerkats at 7:00AM, and then breakfast (above). A long and happy day followed. I’m heading over to Lane 8 to write that post now.
