Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

Yesterday Jennifer and I went to Monroe City after the bed topper was installed on the truck. Monroe City is our old home town. We took flowers to put on the graves of our daughter, Kelly, (Jennifer's sister),and my mom and dad. For those who may not know, our daughter, Kelly, was killed in a car-train accident on May 5th, 1990. My grandfather passed away only 5 months after that horrendous tragedy, and on the day of his funeral, my Dad died. Marilyn and I later lost both of our mothers. We are forever grateful for our faith in God and the wonderful friends who sustained us during that tremendously sorrowful time in our lives.

It was raining when we drove to Monroe City and it rained most of the day. I had plans to wash the truck but put those plans aside. The rain did stop for awhile in the afternoon and the sun came out for a short time. I saw and visited with about a dozen of my old friends in Monroe City. It is a small town and if you are on the main street, you are bound to see people you know. We awoke this morning to more rain and fog, although the temps are still mild. I walked across the street in the campground to visit with Larry who, along with his wife, run the Mark Twain Campground. We visited until Marilyn got ready to go. So here we are at our daughter's house. Remember, she has internet and we do not. All of my journal entries lately are courtesy of Jennifer Dray. :)

I have an e-mail from a company in India, asking me to advise them of my availability to fly some trips for them. NOT until after the first of the year, at least, thank you!!

Marilyn and I planned out part of our journey for after we leave Hannibal. We plan to spend as much as 10 days or so in the San Antonio area. Jan 7 to April 7 will be just west of Harlingen, TX, at Llano Grande RV Resort.

Well, we have a Wal-Mart trip to make so we'll see what tomorrow brings....
