I'm baaaaaaack!

I was away for just over a week, and arrived home smack in the middle of family Thanksgiving gatherings.  I am still tackling 100+ emails, unpacking (mostly just the putting away from the unpacking, and finding homes for the new additions is left), and trying to catch up on all of the TV episodes I missed (somehow zonking in front of the screen for an hour is a lot more attractive than actually working....LOL!)

I've lots of photos to share from my adventures....just as soon as I upload the rest of them!  In the meantime, here is a little sneak peak and some more information about a couple of upcoming events....
