Today is our eleventh anniversary.
We are preparing for a trip to Mobile, Alabama, to attend a condo association meeting where people will be asking interesting questions like, "Why is my roof not secure against rain four months after the hurricane?"
"Why is security so lax that someone could park a truck in front of a first floor unit and steal everything but the water heater?"
After the meeting, we'll drive on to a room in Foley, then to the beach to take a good look at our place. This will be our first visit since the storm.
Such pictures as we have seen of our unit show no damage at all. Count us among the fortunate.
We are leaving Lucy behind this trip. Her big brother Michael is coming up to look after her. This will be the first time we have left her with anyone other than Debra and Craig. In the past year or so, Lucy has taken to both boys, so she'll be okay.
