When Ken agreed to rent an apartment in S. Florida for the year, he also claimed he was going to go back to St. Louis every 4-6 weeks. So it came as a bit of a surprise to me when it was almost 3 months before he decided to head back for the first time. His good buddy and x-work contact was going to be in St. Louis the beginning of September and had rented party rooms at 2 Cardinal baseball games and invited us to one. That was enough incentive to even get me to come back to St. Louis for a "vacation"! So on Aug. 19th, we jumped in our car and started our long trek back.
The day after the food trucks we headed off on a road trip that took us to a night at the Wyndham Ocean Walk on Daytona Beach; the Wyndham King Cotton Villas in Edisto, South Carolina; 3 nights in Knoxville at our son and daughter-in-law's house; 2 weeks in St. Louis; 2 more nights in Knoxville; 2 more nights in Edisto; and finally back to Coral Springs. Just a few pictures to highlight that trip---

It turned out to be a fun 3 week trip. Even though at times I felt like we were back in the dark ages---no cable tv, just digital antennae; no computers, just a phone; no ac for the hottest part of the trip! Was great seeing Tim and FAith and all our friends and family in St. Louis. Am I ready to move back there---not hardly!!!
