Welcome to Friday Recliner friends – a little something to get your weekend started on a relaxed note and a quiet place to rest a while.
Finally FINALLY it seems the weather is on the turn. I can feel a hint of warmth in the air and spring just can’t come soon enough for me. Anyone else ? I think our resilience has been pushed to its limits this year and more than ever we are longing for warmth and comfort and reprieve.

How Will You Get There?
If you are traveling by car, there is a good chance it’s a trip. If you have packed one or more “throw-up bags,” clearly, it’s a trip. If you packed a training potty, not a vacation.
