I live in a community where there are a lot of retired people. Some of them seem like they're always travelling. "Next week we're off to Jamaica." Or "We just got back from Scotland." I don't know when I last had a true vacation where I relaxed on warm beaches and ladies in grass skirts brought colorful beverages....that sort of thing. Now I don't begrudge my neighbors for taking vacations. I simply lament my lack of them. And postcards. Nobody ever sends me postcards when they go anywhere. Maybe someday I'll find a little extra money and sail off to some distant land. But not today. Sigh.
