As much fun as vacation is, and Puerto Vallarta certainly was fun this year, it is always nice to get home too. Sleeping in one’s own bed, making meals in one’s own kitchen, turning on the television to find at least some of the channels are in English; these are all simple pleasures I can take for granted without a little reminder of how nice it is at Casa de Harper.
Of course all is not joy and happy reconciliation with Auntie Em; or Auntie Mame for that matter. As Harper’s Other Dad is so fond of saying; “There’s work to be done!”
Harper’s Other Dad loves to show off his collection of Spo Shirts so, of course ….. I need to get to my pool-side rock and get busy.
While wandering the streets and beaches of Yelapa, one of my Tevas went on the critical list. It is repairable, thank goodness, but it won’t fix itself.
We asked our friends at the US Postal Service to hold our mail while we were out of town. Today they dropped off a little light reading. I am sure much of it can go directly into recycling.
On the positive side, I came home to find glad tidings in my email. A nice man names Paul Anderson sent me a note telling me I have won a new BMW plus £750,000 (GBP). I am happy about that because I can use the new car to go pick up that box full of money that will be arriving from Nigeria any day now.
Of course the best part of coming home is always picking up Harper from boarding. After 10 days there she was most happy to be coming home to see both her dads.
