So way back in 2010, Cindi and I made a trip to Florida to visit her family. We stayed at Tom and Barb’s for three or four days and slept in the pull out couch in the living room. Cindi warned me that her mom got up early and wasn’t quiet. Well, every morning like clockwork, Barb got up, rattled around in the kitchen and watched TV. I swear it was around 5-5:30! Barb and Tom were delightful people and I had a great time getting to know them. And honestly, I laughed every morning that I was there!
