George and I are fairly practical when it comes to avoiding the ever-present temptation to ‘splurge’. Perhaps that comes from spending so much time on the road where, out of necessity, we monitor our expenditures very carefully. Having said that, we celebrated Valentine’s Day and our eleventh wedding anniversary together by arranging to have live lobsters from Maine flown out to our home in Colorado. It was a very scrumptious and tasty splurge. Now it’s back to reality as we head out on the road for our 2010 travel season.
