The Saturday before Labor Day

and why am I not on vacation like thousands of others who for the past two afternoons were all on I-65 south headed to the beach and kept me from getting home on time?

I am not on vacation because my dear hubby is a home-body and won't go anywhere!

I am not on vacation because we don't have any money, cause all our money is going towards paying up front fees to repair our house from damage from Tropical Storm Fay.

I am not on vacation because gas prices are too exorbitant and we are boycotting vacations due to the added expense.

I am not on vacation because we have quail and dogs that need to be tended to.

I am not on vacation because the mountains are too far away and we don't like the beach that much.

But since I haven't been on a vacation since 2001 or 2002, I would probably go anywhere, even the beach if I could.
