On a happier note, my wife and I finally made use of the certificate for a free week’s stay at a resort. We won it back in November in a raffle held to raise funds for Kids’ Fun and Drama (KFAD), a local organization that introduces children to singing and acting. Our son Marty joined this past fall and acted in his first play, Oliver! During the intermission, they held the drawing, and we won the big prize.
So, later this year, we’re off to Costa Rica. Neither of us has ever been farther south than Matamoros, Mexico, so this should be a real treat.
