No. I get a wacky, stressful run into Reno (July?), and a weekend at Cotati (August), and that's it for travel.
tpbm had a wonderful "staycation" in the past year.

No, alas. I will never again wiggle my toes in the Pacific, and beaches are tragically off-limits to me.
tpbm rather strongly feels that "tragically" is an ungrammatical part of this sentence.

Nope, I think it worked perfectly. I also think I need to work with other locals to figure out how to get you to the beach so you can wiggle your fingers in the Pacific. Wonder if a sled would work on the sand?



tpbm has an idea to get Fishy across the beach so she can wiggle her fins in the Pacific

No. But it does look like fun. And then I'm a little worried about the oil based fabrics in my chairs, and the air bladder cushions that would not take a hot spark. Taking me anywhere is such a hassle...
tpbm knows how to spell hassle instead of thinking it's more like hustle...

I learned that one early, because it rhymes with my maiden name.

Yep. Hard to believe the wife has been gone four years to the day.

TPBM is aghast that ant farms now come with nutrient filled gel (ant gel) instead of sand.

Yeah. Damn pollen is kicking my ass.
tpbm can figure out what it is, if they know my location and that even though it's the third year of low precipitation, I haven't had this in the last two years.

I'm a little confused as to what the waxes v. paddles question evokes, and I've never been to a regional.
