We have had a great time in Boise. We celebrated Kristine’s birthday, Mother’s Day and the 10th Anniversary since Kristine’s surgery and she is cancer free. We enjoyed bike rides, beautiful scenic drives, great food, and several bbq’s with friends. We visited wineries, the Greenbelt, boat rides on Lucky Peak Lake, an artists reception at Zion Bank and attended church at the beautiful Cathedral of the Rockies Methodist Church. We shopped at thrift stores, Shopko, Kohls, Best Buy, Winco (I love that grocery store) and went back to Verizon several times for advice on our new “smart” phones. We tried local foods including unique french fries at Boise Fry Company, finger steaks at Trudys, regional foods at Juniper Food and Cocktails, wine at St. Chappels Winery and Bodovinos. Ed completed almost all of his “daddy-do” list and he played Pickleball several times at the YMCA in Meridian. We enjoyed seeing Kristine as often as we could and it all went so fast.

We hated to say goodbye and will miss her terribly, just as we miss Corinne. But it is May, and time to head back home. Ed has retired from active practice, and although we no longer have a separate office, we have been getting calls from clients wanting him to do some work for them, so we will head back home and do what we can from our home office.

We have received bad news from our RV friends Bill and Ruth, who lost everything in a tornado that hit their RV park in Oklahoma City and destroyed their RV and truck and from my brother, Mike, who discovered he had cancer and had surgery this week to remove his kidney and the tumor that had enveloped his kidney. Hopefully, both of them will recover and be able to move forward with their lives. We send our prayers and best wishes to them and pray for happier times.

We are now headed east and hope we don’t run into any bad weather as we take the northern route home. We just heard that there is snow predicted for North Dakota and hope it passes through before we pass through. After all, it is the middle of May! We had beautiful weather while we were in Boise and we are now officially spoiled for anything else. We left today in rain so hope that is not a harbinger of what is to come.

On the road again................................................
