Good for your dad! Yay. I had trouble with the "write your favorite poem or Haiku" question. Weirdly worded. I couldn't decide what it meant.

My grandma read those too but she called the soap operas her "stories". LOL.

Solo travel is tough but great. I've done it with work travel and had weekends away in some great places. It is good for the soul.
