Jun 17, 2013 - Back to Elma

I got to spend the morning with my very good friend Judy Nowicki. We met when I worked at Group Health and became fast friends. She is a fun, sweet lady and it is always neat how when we see each other again it is like we have never been apart. She made the best zucchini bread and I got to bring some home, much to John's delight. As we have said many times, plans are meant to change. It looks like we will be staying here for another week as John's hearing aid repair had a hiccup. If it is not repaired by next week, we will head out anyway...

Jun 16, 2013 - Happy Father's Day

To all the fathers who may be reading this today. Happy Father's Day! To all the father's of girls...you are your daughter's first love and it never goes away. My father was my hero standing 10 feet tall and always there for me. He loved me with his whole being, he shared in my happiness and cried with me when I was hurt. He read to me at bedtime, he gave me a spanking when I was bad, (in those days we got our butt slapped when we were bad now it would be something to call the police on) and he supported my decisions whether right or wrong....

Jun 15, 2013 - Fun filled Saturday

We had a fun filled day going from one great dining experience to another. We started off our day with a lunch at Jack & Jeanine Markle's home in Ballard, Wa. We all used to work at United together back in the day. I love their home and how they have decorated it. Their son, John, is a bartender so he made the best margaritas (my drink of choice) for us. Jack made a wonderful stew with tortillas to sop up all the great gravy. We had a nice day with them, catching up with their lives, telling them about our travels, and just enjoying the...

Jun 14, 2013 - Friday Afternoon

We took off for Best Buy this morning to take my computer in to see if it could be repaired. I definitely need a new battery, as it has been telling me that for over a week, and it is getting quite hot (cause my fingers type so fast?) and the anti-virus is not working most of the time. Oh, yeah, and it runs really, really slow. I have had it for over 5 years and I know the life time for computers is less than that, so I was a bit nervous. Needless to say, my fears were well founded and the repairs would be as much as a new computer. So, we...

Jun 13, 2013 - Time well spent

Today was a great day, as I got to spend time with my sweet daughter-in-law. It is seldom that we have ever spent the day together even when we lived here in Washington. We always would talk about it but for some reason one of us would have something come up and it didn't happen. I enjoyed her company so much. John came back from Elma today and it was good to have my husband and dog back with me. I seriously missed them both. That is it for today, just a nice day spent with two people I love very much. thanks for checking in....I do...

Jun 12, 2013 - Can you go home again?

I had Kelly’s car today so it was time to see the old town. It was strange driving a car after the truck for 1 ½ years. Three things I found out. For one, you don’t need to put that much pressure on the brake pedal…I almost put myself through the windshield. Touchy! Two, the turning radius on a car is much shorter than on a truck. No damage done. Three, when you step on the gas you soar forward pretty quick. I learned to use a lighter touch after almost hitting the car in front of me a couple times. There is one nice thing about the truck,...

Jun 11, 2013 - Relax

John headed out this afternoon with Toby to check up on the trailer for a couple days. Prior to him leaving we went grocery shopping so I could cook dinner for the kids. Boy, one thing we noticed was how expensive food is here in Washington compared to other states that we have been in. Just 2 lbs. of ground beef came to $8.00! That was the lowest price they had. Wow. Made me remember when we were in Wellton, Az. where I could buy a New York steak, for goodness sake, for $3.00. Anyhoo, John left, the kids were at work and I actually had...

Jun 10, 2013 - Home with family..Priceless

Yes, it has been a while since I have been on the journal. I appreciate that some of you miss hearing from us, and we thank you. We have been with our children (the ones in Washington State) since Thursday and have been in “pig heaven”. We have had such a great time that I have been kind of lazy about getting on the journal…cause I am pooped at night and the mind goes blank. Does that count as a good excuse? We are staying at my son, Alex and his wife, Kelly’s home. It is a neat townhouse with cute décor. We spent the evening we arrived on...

Jul 5, 2011 - Preparation day

Preparations are underway. Getting all our stuff (yes, we have too much "Stuff") together for our trip. The cats are oblivious or what is going on. They mostly sit around like pharaohs, wondering what all the commotion is all about. They'll find our REAL soon.

Jul 27, 2007 - Day 11 - The End of the Journey but the Promise of More to Come

Day 11 - Gray, Misty - We are obviously back in Western Washington We woke this morning to cool clouds and mist. After so much time in temperatures in the high 80's, the high 50's is a shock. We ate breakfast, showered, did general cleaning, and starting packing up. Checkout time was noon, and at 11:30 we ate lunch to fuel us for the day of bargaining ahead. We called the RV dealer to let them know we where about an hour away and headed off to Fife. When we arrived we pulled into their fenced lot and found a tight place to park; we were...
