My parents are currently roaming the wilds of Alaska.
Just the two of them.
They left at the beginning of July and, after having battery trouble over the Fourth of July weekend up in Seattle (and therefore extending their trip another week), they made it up to Alaska recently. They'll be gone for a total of about six weeks.
I just got a postcard from them today. Of two grizzly bears.
Seriously? Are they trying to heighten my concern? Way to rub it in, Mom and Dad.
They can do whatever they want. More power to 'em. In fact, I love that they're having so much fun now that they're empty nesters. In fact, I look forward to all the fun things M and I will do someday. But maybe in places with better cell phone coverage.
Because if something bad happens, they better die and not just become paraplegics. Otherwise, guess who will have to take care of them?
