Once again, I turn my thoughts to my birthday trip. Last year's trip was postponed for a good cause and this year my imagination is fired up.
Oh, I've been looking at Eurorail passes and Bavarian forests and Swiss lakes and dreaming of long lost Irish relatives. I've been having envious thoughts about Samantha Brown. I'm longing for Greek Isles and little known Spanish villages.
Then I look at the air fare.
So I think we will resurrect the southeastern Utah trip. Moab. Arches and Canyonland National Parks.
I am to see the orthopedic doc this afternoon. I will tell him that I hope to be hiking in Utah in five months. We'll see how hard he laughs.
Thor sez: Can I go? I want to see a dinosaur bone!
