Carolina Beach, NC With Ken and Harold

Happy Monday, everyone! First I would like to apologize for my unexplained absence last week. I had a pretty rough time with some medical stuff and didn't really do anything but work and sit at home. There is no fun reading about that, right? I do plan on making up for last week with a great series on the trip Stump and I took with two great old friends of ours, Harold and Ken.

I can't tell you exactly how long ago I met Ken and Harold, but counting back the time that I worked here and there, went to school, and this and that, it was a minimum of 13 years ago. Gosh, time sure can fly!

I took a couple of vacation days and Stump, Harold, Ken, and I left for Carolina Beach, NC on Thursday. We arrived after about a four hour drive and a stop at a barbecue stand to find our room waiting for us to come and unwind.

Let me introduce you to Ken - also pool-ready

We moved from the pool to the ocean to play around in the waves.

  2. Hey, Ron!

    It seems we both went through hell last week. I'm glad it's over and hope that it only gets better from here.

    Thanks for the photo compliment. I do have some of the greatest friends anyone could ever ask for. Harold and Ken are some of my best. We had an amazing time.
