I definitely missed not having a spring excursion this year with my fellow communication workers in the southeastern states, due to that department no longer existing at my office and me now working in the Service Center. Budget constraints really negated any real significant vacation this year. The majority of my annual accrued vacation benefit was used to extend the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, plus some time off in the summer to care for my wife recouping from a surgery (yes, she’s fine). I’ll update this caption if I remember something else, but the only significant photographic memory I can presently recall is once again gathering my family at my parents’ house in Tampa for Thanksgiving Day.
