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...................

A Little Fun!!

Oh, there it is! Just over the horizon!! Right there!! I can see it!! Well, almost.

I'm going to brush my teeth, load the car and make the rubber hit the road! We are going H....O....M....E !!! I feel like Dorothy ... There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home! I'd click the heels of my ruby slippers, but that's hard to do while driving.

And while I'm driving over the next 8 hours, here is something to keep you busy. Now, work on this, and I'm going to expect to hear that you can do this at the end of the day. Get busy!!

How smart is Your Right Foot ?

Just try this. It is from an orthopedic surgeon............ This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's preprogrammed in your brain!

1. While sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right Hand. Your foot will change direction.

I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so. Send it to your buddies to frustrate them too.


  1. Good for you Lynilu, saying almost home makes the spirit soar especially when you visualize your own shower and own bed. I did post yesterday and when I read the preview I saw a typo and clicked to correct it and "poof" the whole thing was gone, and I didnt know how to find it, forgetting that I had to click edit. My comments in a nutshell were....hate those major roads under construction...hate those motels that seem to rent "by-the-hour" and dislike Danielle Steele books. Names are changed, locale is different and plots are all similar, but the one I did like was Thurston House. I enjoy Nicholas Sparks and have begun reading Jodi Picoult...she is pretty good. I have enjoyed your great travelogue along with the photos when you were able to take them. How about a trip north of the border? Something I was curious about...what the heck is immigration doing in the middle of Texas, or did I misunderstand that comment? Hope the remainder of your trip was uneventful, and I bet the KIDS will be glad its over.
    Thanks for the trip.

  2. Speaking for some of us readers of your blog Lynilu, do you know how it feels to be sitting in a most comfortable chair reading a favorite book - maybe with a fire crackling nearby.

    That's the general feeling I get from reading your blog and sometimes it's so comforting I just go on and do something else comforting right after without leaving a comment or a thank you.

    Please consider this a thank you and thanks for keeping us all interested and entertained with your adventures.


  3. Nothing like getting back to your own bed, hope the trips flies by.

    I'm not even trying this test, I'm well aware of my coordination problems!!

  4. That's frustrating to say the least!!! :)
    Hope you've had a good drive Dorothy and you and the "totos" are home safe and sound.

  5. Thanks Lynilu...I am reminded that I have no coordination. :)

    Hope you are back home by now. I was starting to miss the pictures of NM.

  6. ARGH!!! I almost felt like you were standing behind me saying, "SEE THERE...I toldja you couldn't do it!" :-) I actually looked behind me when I tried it.

    Be safe on your travels home, my friend. I'm SO glad you made it to all of your destinations safely and that you had a great time. And I'm BEYOND excited that I was on your agenda. Take care.

  7. Oh My Goodness, that is so weird !!! It happenned !!! I just wan tto know who ha dthe time on their hands to figure that foot/hand thing out (lol!)

    WELCOME HOME, Lynilu !!! It does feel grand, doesn't it ? Yes, it truly does :)

  8. Ruth - I haven't read anything by Jodi Picoult, but I'll give it a try. I'm actually thinking about a trip to the New England states in the next couple years, and I've wanted to see Canada too, either then or on a separate trip. What part of Canada are you in?

    As for the immigration, see a new post I'll be doing in just a few minutes! I'll explain there.

    And you're welcome. I've enjoyed having you ride along!

  9. Robert - Oh, thank you so much. I sneak in at your blogs about the same way, quietly, then slip away, calm.

    Good life to you, as well.

    Sandra - Ahhh, yes! And you're a big chicken for not trying it and feeling silly like the rest of us!

    Sherry - Isn't that the oddest thing?! I tried it several times with no success, of course. Yes, D and the 2 Ts are home!

    Caroline - Coordination? Who need it?? LOL! OK, I'll get some pix going soon!

    Dawn - Yes, ARGH!! Doesn't it make you nuts?? And I WAS standing behind you and moved very quickly! LOL! Thanks it was good to be able to meet you and your darling girls!

    Annie - LOL! Yes, it is! I don't know who came up with it, although it said that an orthopedic surgeon did. I wonder what he was doing! And yes, home is goooooood!


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!!!
