The remembrance of the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7th is a major event in our country and even more so in a military city like San Diego. Our RV park seems to be located on the military flight path and today there has been more activity than we normally see, probably all related to the significance of the day. We have spent the afternoon watching the military helicopters and planes fly overhead. This all prompts us to say a big thank you to both active military and retired veterans. You make it possible for us to enjoy our freedom.
In a small way, today is another significant day for us. One year ago today, I sat in a windowless office and Mike was working in 20 degree temperatures outside and freezing rain. Our workdays were long and demanding with stress taking a toll on both of us. We made a vow that day--one year from December 7, 2009, we would be retired and sitting on a warm beach in San Diego.
Unbelievably, we are here and drinking wine in the sunshine. What took us so long?
