The perfect vacation

Food For Thought

About this time every year, several of my friends start deserting me and take off for places with kindlier climates. Florida and Arizona seem to be the more popular destinations, with California the choice for some who’ve either lived there in the past or who have relatives there now. Apparently it takes stronger ties to lure people that far from home. Being the unenthusiastic traveler I am, I stay home and wait for them to come back.
