Gill didn’t know who needed the vacation worse. He or Talbot’s Peak. The Beer-Food Festival came off without too many problems. He wanted no more brewing, tasting, or food preparation for a few days. Time was passing too fast until campaigning would start up again. Time to relax was now.
He looked at the tickets for Palm Beach setting on his desk. Time to pack and rush to the airport if he made it out the door without anyone wanting one more thing from him. Blackie was at Rachel’s. Tyburn was off with Louie on a supply buying trip. Hadley and Ranger were out in the woods doing pack things. And there was the invitation to the nude beach that appeared delighting from the brochure. Rachel’s titters at a sunburned squirrel scampering through town reminded Gill to purchase sunscreen. Nudity had its great moments, but roasted crisp anatomy parts didn’t. His groin was going to remain pale just like his arse would too. His pale blue bikini swim along with several pairs of shorts, t-shirts, and unmentionables filled his suitcase. Sneakers and flip flops along with his Hawaiian Aloha towel laid on his bed at home waiting for their addition to the interior pile. Yup, he’d earned this vacation and he was gone. Going, going, gone! Last stop was the bookstore and then home to dump the last items in the suitcase and zip it closed.
Gill grabbed his car keys and the plane tickets off his desk. Two last clicks secured his computer. Even Rachel didn’t know his password. The Peak could run without him for two weeks. Even Mayor’s deserved time off. Sun, surf, and sand look out! Gill on vacation started now!
Happy Weekend Gang!
I'm busy with preparations for my own vacation happening soon. Overtime at work has me dealing with long days and the occasional migraine. Take time to take care of yourself and spend time with you spices and loves. DP, DP's Gal Pal and I are off to for vacation in a few weeks. The Spice Homestead is gearing up and working to be ready to relax and write amongst other things.
How are your summer plans coming along? Remember to share a good book or two with your loves and spice as you relax enjoying the warm weather and time off. I know I am!
Until Next Week,
