These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Goin' Home

I'm at KCI, waiting for my flight. My path is the reverse of the one that brought me here, arriving about 4:30 this afternoon In Albuquerque. My friend will meet me with my car, we will probably have a quick bite, and after dropping him of at his house, I'll begin the long three hour drive back to home. I'm gonna be very tired by 9:00 or 10:00 tonight when I fall into bed.

Allan says the furry babies have missed me. Actually, I think he called them "a bit psycho." They're not eating well, not always making it outside for potty business, and not sleeping through the nights. Obviously they are missing their mommy. I guess that when I make the next trip to bring the furniture, I'm driving so they can come along. Heck, no, they're not spoiled! And not psychotic, just neurotic!

Caroline and Laura drove me to the airport this morning, opened the door, and more or less rolled me out on the curb before gunning the engine and squealing away! Can you believe it?!?!? I think they were actually glad to be rid of me!! No, I told them not to come in to wait, but to go on and have a good day. They were good hosts and we had a lot of laughs in the last three days.

Last night we had dinner at a neighbor's home. It was nice because I got to spend time with 4 good friends. G & K had been my neighbors since 1977. I watched their daughter grow from an infant to the outgoing, lovely young woman she is now. Along the way we have enjoyed lots of laughter in the good times, cried together of losing other neighbors, and it is hard to believe that the special relationship of "neighbor" is over. C & L enjoyed the evening, too. They knew these neighbors, but not well, and I hope they will find time to spend together in the coming months. It would be good for all of them, I think.

So, everyone, I hope your weekend is super. Take care and don't do anything I wouldn't!


  1. Lynn
    We got your letter with this blog address and was glad to here from you. It looks like you have sold and are moving on. I'm sure that it is a nice feeling to have that chapter closed in your life.
    As you can tell I'm not much for writing.

  2. Don!!! I've emailed you but it was returned, so I hoped the snail mail would reach you! Please go to the email option of this blog and send me your addy! I was in your neck of t he woods last summer and didn't get an answer at your house. I'd love to be in touch again.

  3. Hmm, I wonder why Caroline and Laura peeled away like that?? But then I think I've heard a thing or two about Caroline's driving...

  4. Sandra - Well, you didn't hear it from me, but you did hear right. She seems to think she is Andretti or something like that! Scary!! ;-)


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
