New York Bound
We have been wanting to go to New York and visit Jonathan and Holly ever sense they moved there four or five years ago. Because of Jonathan's commitments as part of a Broadway show, he doesn't get time off over any of the holidays. Evidently, that's when the shows get a lot of business, so he has to stay put and be there for every show. We got to see them for a couple days as they came to Donna's Dad's funeral, but we have continued to have a hard time finding the days off and the finances to make a trip to see them. Well, it happened pretty quickly, but Holly emailed us about some really great fares she found online. We jumped at it and got a really great deal on a couple of tickets from St. Louis to NY. And to top it off, Jonathan actually has a little time off after his show had a period of really demanding schedule. So - we're flying out Sunday afternoon and getting to NY that evening, and have tickets to return on Wednesday afternoon. We'll get a good two plus days to just visit them and see NY. The biggest variable now is how much will the weather cooperate. Oh well, as long as we don't get stranded at an airport somewhere, it really doesn't matter what the weather does as long as we get to spend time together. Keep us in your prayers. I'd like to not see any geese in the air, especially in NY.
