Trip - part 1

Thank you to all who commented on my unfortunate news of my last post. I am getting better, but it's a really difficult thing to come to terms with. I never forget to treasure & value life...

So I decided to do kind of a trip journal, will start this page with the beginning  5-22-12:

This I call Darth Vader. DV wakes me up sometimes. A neighbor I believe does this & it sounds very much like DV when it wakes you in the weeee hours of the morning!

So I move on:
I get up, get dressed, take my last items to storage. This is what my van that I just had worked on did to me! I took it by Aamco & they did a reading. It's electrical, it's still drivable though. Soooo...
Awe, screw it. This is what I did for myself later that day! That is, after I had a doc appointment.
I only had one, but it was quite good!

Ellie goes to the mechanic for a tune up & oil change.

Ellie is shameless. She spills her guts for all the world to see. But she's ready for the big trip now!

YAY, we're finally on the road!!!

We drive, & drive, & drive, & drive....I'm on I-59 heading north out of Texas. I want to get out of Texas on that day, but I left late (8:30pm). It wasn't possible to make it that far for myself & my foot. In fact, I had to drive a lot before I could simply find a place to pull over for the night! But I found a place to pull over in a small town outside of Marshall, TX for the night, so we're relieved. Although it's 2:30am! I walk the dogs & we all go to bed.

More to follow on my next post.
I hope everyone here is doing well. I'll try to catch up as soon as I can. I've been pretty fatigued since I arrived here. I'm in Pa now. Weather has been great! Although folks here are complaining about the heat?!? HA!!! They'd die in our heat at the bayou city of Houston, TX! They'd simply die! It's been around 84 here, but low humidity. Ahhh, to me, that's a real vacation alone!

~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~


  1. You are so right about the weather! We have been in Virginia for the past six weeks...these people know NOTHING about heat....I don't even care what the humidity is gorgeous for this Arizona gal!...hope things are going better!

  2. Good to know you are back on the road now. Hope you can get past the recent tragedy. I know you can - you've been thru so much already.

  3. Hey! We just spent almost two weeks in Lancaster, PA, and really enjoyed our down time. Beautiful countryside. Hope where you are is just as nice!

  4. Happy you are starting to feel better about things. Relax and enjoy your visit with your Mom.
