I would have mentioned I was going. I would have scanned in pics of my trip 10 years ago - you know the kind of thing: me frolicking with dolphins and downing Daiquiris at one the zillion 'Hemingway drank here' bars, dancers at the Club Tropicana, 1950's automobiles and buena-vista bandsmen - but I'm not going to.
I've not been well.
I'm still not well - and not the sort of 'not well' that will enjoy an 8 hr flight or relish an all-you-can-drink bar.
Also it's hurricane season.
Sorry to sound glum about it. I'm sure it will be very nice. I think I've scheduled one other glum post during my absence. Back in two weeks!
