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

Bonanza update!!!!

OMG!!!!! I am having such a fantastic day!!! I should have bought a lottery ticket, but it is too late now. 

Allan, my stepson called me a bit ago, asking if I would take him to the airport in Albuquerque on Friday. He's going to San Diego for a few days to see his mom and sister. We talked about it a few days ago, and because of a little problem with his car, I offered. He has been under the weather, and didn't have time to get the car looked at, so asked if I would help. Of course, I will. Anyway, as we talked, he mentioned that he couldn't get on Southwest Arlines where a couple pieces of baggage are free, so he planned to take just a carry-on, but he discovered his bag is about 2-3 inches too big. Same problem I ran into, also. He was planning to go to Walmart tonight and buy a suitcase, and I offered him one of mine. I have two that are OK for carry-on requirements, one was my husband's, Allan's father. I doubt I will ever use them both at once, so he can probably keep it, if he wants. Anyway ....

So I went down to get the case to take to him tomorrow. I brought it up and decided I should check to be sure I hadn't left anything in it. I unzipped all the zippers and ran my hand in all the pockets. On the very last pocket, I touched something, and I yanked my hand out! It startled me! I opened the pocket and saw something shiny inside. I reached in and pulled out a pair of earrings that I thought I lost on a cruise in 2000!!!!!! Seriously!!!!!!

I'm thrilled senseless!

These are favorites and rather expensive, turquoise and silver.  I'm so happy to have them back!!

OK, I'm obviously living right, but I'm not really sure what I've done to deserve today. Not that I'm complaining!

Woooooo Hooooooo!!!!

I'm so happy that I'm going to share another sunrise with you!! That's happy!!  ;D
