Well today we made the reservation for our son to fly back to Arizona once his visit here is over…he will have to “hang out” at the airport in Arizona for about 8 hours or so before flying out to Japan. Apparently the army has a army representative there at the airport where he will arrange sleeping quarters at or near the airport so that soldiers can get some sleep and rest up before continuing on with their trip. So all we have to do is get him there. He should start driving here around November 9th. He is driving here because he is bringing his car home..the army suggested that he store the car somewhere in california but that is useless because they do not start it for you…or maintain the car..if the car is here..then we will start it up a couple of times a week…drive it around the block..and make sure it stays safe. Right now he has to return to Arizona on November 17th. His flight to Japan leaves out very early on the 18th. So we booked his flight from Orlando.
The weather here is still too warm for my liking…I realize that Florida does not have your normal four seasons….but it is already the end of October and still the temps are in the 90’s and the humidity has not gone down enough. We are also 24 inches below in our rainfall…so it is going to be a very dry and crispy “winter” which usually leads to a lot of sporadic fires. I am really shocked at the fires in California. That is just so devastating…my prayers are with all those families…
I am still trying to figure out what I want to do with my blogs and how to organize everything. I already have a personal blog at aol…but it is EXTREMELY limited on what you can have in your blog..basic pictures and text and some widgets from technorati..but nothing major. It also seems that people outside of the aol community cannot leave comments if they do not have an aol screen name…which I think just limits it more. I do like wordpress so far. It has taken some getting used to ..but I like it. I am just trying to figure out in which direction to go.
Well if I come up with any more interesting thoughts (cough cough!!) I shall return!
