On the road again . . .and one last surprise!

Ogallala, Ne
It took two long days of driving to get home from Mount Rushmore but I did add two new states to my list  - Nebraska and Kansas.  I stopped in Ogallala, NE hoping to see some historical markers but no such luck. Ogallala was where the cattle drives went and there was also a pony express stop there (remember "Lonesome Dove"??)  I loved that book:)


Tomorrow morning Walter and I leave for Nashville.  We are packed and ready to go!!  This will be the first time he has his RV on the road.

Ready to go!!!!





I have also learned I have to be careful what I say on my blog:)  But I do have one last surprise for one of my readers.  Janet and Nick will be in charge of the drawing this time.    No picture because most of the goodies are in my car - somewhere:):)  But there are items from the lavender farm, Seattle, and all the national parks I visited and I'll add something from Nashville.  Sign up before Saturday at noon CST and I'll mail the package ( U.S. only and winner takes all)  when I get back late next week.    So, all of you that haven't made a comment this is your chance.  I would love to have lots of comments (and stories if you are so inclined).  If you have trouble commenting, email and let me know.   You do have to scroll down to the "post" button.


there is joy

Enjoying your blog adventures. Fun meeting you and sharing that wonderful Solarium "bedroom", floating through that beautiful scenery. (Lonesome Dove is a favorite of mine as well.)
Luck and Fun as you head to Tennessee.

Have a good trip. Good luck with your search for a place to live. Your kitties are waiting. I liked the pictures of Mount Rushmore. I still want to go see it as well as some of the other places you've been. I'll have to find someone to go with me. Jim hates car trips!

I love your blog, but now it is time to suck up to Janet and Nick. Janet did I ever tell you what an awesome husband you have....very cute and entertaining :) Nick....terrific wife you picked. Ask her about outdoor showers at "Camp Ardell." Ask her who drove her all around town to find her friend's house (following Janet's directions)...and the forever infamous quote, "I hate nature." If you come see me when I visit your Mom I'll bring you a treat. (Oops is bribery allowed)

Your blog has been great - educational and fun to read!! Still looking forward to seeing you when you're back in Houston for one last girl's night out before you make the big move.

Hey, really enjoyed your trip! It was fun to read. Really looking forward to see everyone at our dinner! I have something for y'all when we meet!

I would really like to get the lavender stuff...love it!

Lavender is my most favorite plant, fragrance and color. As a matter of fact, I'm thinking about dying my hair lavender and getting a tatoo of a lavender plant on my right bicep.

Dear Lord, please let me win this contest so I will stop making these outrageous comments.

Oh my goodness, I am so impressed that my mom knows how to comment on here!!! :)
The travels look like a really great time! Be careful about getting 'lost in those jungles'. Can't wait to see the house you find:)

You've given me a good idea, to read "Lonesome Dove." I saw the show, of course, but have never read the book. :o)

Love,
