HOME – in our own bed, NOT getting up, packing up, loading up and scooting on down the road.

When we went to retrieve Elroy at Curt and Sam’s (brother and sister-IL). Elroy went flying from their living room couch and came sliding a good 4 feet across their kitchen floor trying to get stopped before landing into our arms. We all about busted a gut laughing at his exitement. It was a robust long welcoming with lots of kisses and hugs.

So I wake up with my heart FULL of THANK YOUs.
That Elroy was well cared for and loved the whole time we were gone, by Curt and Sam, as always.

Thank you to my sister Debbie who cared for our cat, Gracie. Low maintenance cats; leave her food and water out and check on her every few days, she has her own door.
Debbie said she only saw her from a distance.

Al worried if she might leave us. I told him that we have never ever lost a cat. We had long term – (19 and 20 years) – Poncho and Kathy who did not have a cat door. We simply have always come home and found our cats.

I told him Gracie will hear your motorcycle and come as she always does. We got home, I opened the front door and in she came. She annoyed Al the rest of the evening. While he unloaded the bikes, while he tried to concentrate on his note-pad, she squeezed around and finally; Al fell asleep with Elroy tucked close in and Gracie asleep on his chest. All is normal at our house and for that I am THANKFUL.

We have Angels that mow our lawn, all 2.6 acres! THANK YOU Angels, you know who you are. 🙂

THANK YOU to all our prayer warriors who prayed everyday for our safety. We are home SAFE. And GOD SMILES.

Our bucket list great adventure, cross country motorcycle trip has passed with SUCCESS.

Over 5700 miles of; in the saddle-motorcycle time. And believe me we get what I call numb b###. No tickets, and believe me we deserved them. And no accidents or even near misses.

Just Thankful today.


Add 10 miles, because I forgot to set my trip odometer 10 miles late  – every mile counts. 🙂


This is is the navigating system, our Captian/Navigator kept us from rain and storms all day yesterday coming home. And Oklahoma can produce some nasty storms.


Shade – very important for stops such as this. Looks like a ghost station to me.


These are 6 of our 8 GRANDchildren. They turned our journey into a geography lesson and they prayed us all the way home safely, too. The red yarn tells the journey for them to understand.

God has blessed us and Life is GOOD.
