A Traveling Fool (2012)

A Traveling Fool (2012)

I wasn’t going to do a year-end post. But I was lying in bed last night, not sleeping, thinking of some of the things I did in 2012. And what kept coming in to my head was how much I traveled this year. Man, did I travel. And I loved it. With kids. Without kids....
