My sister's funeral services went well. It was a sad time, but also a good one because so many of the family came together. I really enjoyed visiting and leaning on my relatives. I was glad TL was with me, and my son Scott and his famly surprised us by coming.
On the way home, a tire blew on the truck. AAA changed it, and I limped back into Nogal. GAH!! Is it going to end? Yeah, I think it already has.
This morning, Linda brought TL and me to Albuquerque. We got her on the plane, then had lunch, did a bit of shopping (Trader Joe's for snacks for the flight) and she and Pearl brought me to the hotel. Checking in brought a nice surprise. "Because of availability (i.e., not many guests), we have upgraded you to a king suite." OK, see? My fortunes are turning around!
I'm tucked in for the night. Well, I'm using the hotel computer because I didn't bring the laptop. I know, I know! But Dell doesn't have wireless at his house, so why take it. I'll be checking in on his computer. As soon as I type and post this, I'm off to bed with a book, planning to sleep early. I'm tired enough I don't think that is a problem. I have to be up about 4:00 in the morning to catch a shuttle to the airport as my plane leaves about 6:30. That's A.M.!!!
The past few days have been grueling, but I'm ready for fun now. I've called my host, and he is ready to pick me up tomorrow afternoon in Kona. I can't wait!
I won't be posting often for the next couple weeks, so be patient. I will, however, be taking thousands of pictures, and I will fill you in on my return.
Till next time!
