Dreaming of Africa
I am married, a lifelong musician, somewhat competent photographer, and world traveler. Having been around for over 60 years, I have lots of "stuff" floating around inside my head that is screaming to get out.

Time keeps on ticking, ticking, ticking....

Here it is, one week until we leave for Africa on our annual adventure. I have been packing and deciding what I really need to take. My carry-on is almost full, and camera gear makes up the bulk of its contents. Thanks to Think Tank, my camera gear will be easy to carry on, and I am confident that the rest of my belongings will follow in the cargo hold of our transport  without incident.

We have been anxious for the past few weeks, partially in anticipation of our trip, but mostly because our Queen cat, Kerry Ann has been diagnosed with Kidney Disease and a Heart problem. She has been dropping weight like crazy, and has a difficult time getting around, but doesn't seem to want to go yet. We are taking it day to day, and are realizing that we have to accept that she won't be around forever. She is eighteen, and has always been the matriarch of our Torti Clan. We call her the Super, Wonder, Yoga, Squeaker cat. She holds a special place in our lives and in our hearts.

 I plan to post a trip report as soon as I can and promise to include pictures.
