He had reservations for a free time-share condo, and he said that he had thought up a whole bunch of new lies that he needed to tell me.
What we’ll do in South Florida for four days, I have no idea. Perhaps a visit to the Everglades, fishing, golf, or merely basking in the sun can fill our days. In addition, I see a great deal of seafood in my near future as well. Whatever we decide on, just to visit with such an old friend from long ago would be more than enough to make the trip worthwhile.
I cannot imagine what tragedy of hurricane proportions could possibly disrupt our vacation for a third time. We have choices throughout life, and at this time I choose to believe that our time in the sun will not be marred by a third calamity, but instead, events will unfold as being – “Third time’s a charm.”
