Three of the last four weekends of April I was out of town.
April 7th my niece got married down in New Mexico, so I drove down to attend the wedding. In true Martin style, it was a court house affair followed by a picnic a couple hours away in the mountains. I had fun. Juanita and our youngest daughter and her kids stayed and worked taking care of a group that had rented the whole lodge.
In March I had gotten a call that one of my closest friends had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and was not going to be able to take his guests on a tour of the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. He had 2 different 6 day tours scheduled and needed me to fill in for him, so from April 19th to May 5th I was in Arizona/Utah working with the local Navajo guides taking about a dozen people through some of the most striking real estate in North America. I had fun. Juanita and our youngest daughter and her kids stayed and worked taking care of several more groups that had rented the whole lodge.
I'm pretty sure I should be feeling really guilty about now.
