In just a few days I'll be leaving with my family to make a near-three week trip over to Michigan to spend time in Mackinaw; our favorite vacation spot, as well as visiting family. I will have a laptop with me, so if I can get it to work (it's an oldie) you just might hear from me, even if it's just through pictures.
