I didn't think I was going to make it back to Boston for the family reunion this year, but it looks like I am. I haven't been east of Denver in more than 15 years, but this year is a bit special. My great-aunt is turning 100 this year. My little brother and his wife have been planning on going all along, but my older brother and I were not quite sure. We talked about it a little bit over the weekend, found out from our little bro' that it wasn't going to be too expensive so we were debating on going or not. I'll have to use all of my personal days from school, and I hate having a substitute, it's usually more work that it's worth, which is why I still have 88% of my sick days left. But big bro' called dad, told him we were thinking of going and he was quite excited about it, said it would mean a lot to our great-aunt, and fun for him. So we decided damn the torpedos and full speed ahead, we're going. It's not for a while, and as usual you'll have to wait until I'm back to know I've gone, but I'll bring some good pictures, and hopefully a few good stories.
