Well, it's 2 weeks to vacation, and now I'd like to dream about what sort of vacation we would like to have, if we had money and time.
Denise's dream vacay would definitely be New Orleans. She gets so excited when there is anything on T.V. The french quarter is her favorite part. I think it's because of the expulsion of 1755, when the pig-dog English tried to get rid of the French who had settled in the Canadian maritime provinces. They took them from their homes and threw them on boats and sent them to Louisiana. Families were torn apart, thrown nilly willy on boats.
That is my theory for the absolute love of the area. I'd certainly love to tag along.
My idea of a lovely vacation would be Germany. I was born there on the Canadian military base in Lahr, and would love to go back and see it again. I was there till I was 4, so I'd like to see the area now. And I think it would be really pretty.
These will not be our vacations this year, but maybe soon?
