OK, I lied*

August 7

*  But not intentionally.  I just happened to find more stuff from 2004.  Who knew?  That was quite a year considering there were no overseas trips involved.  Probably because we were into our 3rd year of retirement and ready to let the good times roll . . .

[Beginning with what was then the new abode on beautiful Lake Darling . . . ]
