Is he gone?

So the house is being renovated and Donald had to leave for a couple of weeks, huh? Maybe he’ll decide he’d rather not go back to DC and work. Stranger things have happened, although not with the Presidency.

My dad had a 31-year Navy career. Two weeks after he retired from the Navy he went to work for a large local bank. After ten years there he got home from a family vacation and resigned. He and I never really talked about his reasons, but I think he just felt he’d rather putter around the house and travel abroad than deal with the bank’s construction-loan customers anymore. Mom left her museum job shortly thereafter and they traveled a lot until he passed away in 1993.

I suppose it’s too much to hope that Trump will do the same.
