Jan, DD lives in Lincoln, Nebraska. We'll take 2 days getting there, depending on how DH feels each day. If he has bad days, we'll make the trip in 3. We got an invitation from our old neighbor when we lived in Lincoln. His 80th birthday is in December but the family is having a party for him the middle of August. Just found out this morning their county fair is the first part of August. My oldest DGD is in 4H and it would be fun to go see her compete. The problem with August is it is so hot and humid there, which is hard on DH's breathing. I'm willing to put up with it if he is. If we do go down in August we'll have to miss the birthday party, which wouldn't be too bad since we wouldn't get much of a chance to visit with Bill. Now we have to make the decision of going in August or sticking with our original plan of May. We have to decide soon so I can turn in my vacation days. Either way, I can't wait to see the girls.
