This episode I talk about the two (count ’em 2!) vacations I went on this year. First, a joint birthday gift trip my wife and I gave each other: a week in Scotland! Then, a week in Boise for my granddaughter’s birthday and a few days on the Oregon coast with the family. Plus, what I read while in the car, watched after we returned, and some other tidbits along the way.
