Thanks Guys for all the "therapy"
Oonrahnjay: I sure do understand the age thing, my dad is in his seventy's and every year drives his class A to Myrtle Beach for 2 or 3 weeks, I don't know how many years he has left and I really would like to get the bus to the point where we can make the trip together. I think thats kind of pushing me at this point. But a little push is a good thing, I really don't want a white elephant sitting in my driveway.
Yes, a little push is a good thing -- just don't get pushed "too much"!
Best wishes to your dad - yes, if an older person has people who can take care of the "heavy lifting", he can enjoy a great many things as years go by.
