The Advantages of Communications on Facebook

10am this morning: My friend Karen posts on Facebook "I'm heading to Busch Gardens with the kids today."

10:10am: My comment: "Jealous! We'll probably go next weekend."
10:11am: Karen: "Wanna come?"

I go into GameTeen's bedroom, wake him and ask if he wants to go. His response was to hop out of bed. Thus began our spontaneous excursion to Tampa, with two detours to our storage unit to get the various pieces to put the scooter in the van.

It was a glorious day, 80 degrees and puffy clouds in the sky. The kids had a blast, and Karen and I enjoyed hanging out without either one of us in a scout uniform.

Here's to spur of the moment decisions!
