  • Vacation mode

    After a 2-day drive broken up by a glorious 5 hour nap and shower at Candlewood suites (clean, convenient and dog friendly) we made it to Vermont. Our little slice of rural Vermont life at our AirBNB has us in full vacation mode and it will be a bit before it clicks that we are […]

  • Wrapping up another assignment and tonight is my LAST Night Shift for awhile. Never say never and all that….. This assignment has been a local treat. Home each day, good people to work with and the opportunity to get in a lot of “last things” before we head north. “Last” for a little bit anyway: […]
