Somebody asked me the other day if we have any big plans for summer. I bothers me a little that I hadn't considered it at all until I was asked. So, the answer is "no." But that's okay, our children are taking up the slack. We heard from our son, who left town and flew to the west coast, arriving in time to watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean.
Meanwhile, her brother found himself in San Diego with no specific plans. I asked, "Are you going to the World Famous San Diego Zoo?" Well, he didn't know about the zoo; but he immediately looked it up online and balked at the admission price. He asked "Do you think it's worth 42 bucks?" I said "I don't know, but it's supposedly the best zoo in the country. If you're in San Diego, visiting the zoo is basically a requirement." Having said that, I had to back up my words with action; so I jumped onto the internet and bought tickets for them. It just amazes me that in a matter of minutes from half a continent away, I can have tickets electronically delivered. Just about an hour later, they were staring at a panda.
