I rode to the third stop light again this morning, and though my legs felt a little loose, I was doing slightly better than yesterday. Thank you all for your encouragement! Continue reading
It’s raining tonight. Who knew we’d travel all this way without rain until we reached Tucson? Continue reading
We spent a long, hard day driving today. We had hoped to be able to make it to Blythe, CA on the border with Arizona, but by the time we got to Palm Springs, we were just glad to be able to find a place to stay! Continue reading
We’re in the RV! It’s still parked in our driveway, but we hope to leave as early as possible in the morning. Continue reading
Today went a little better. Mark gave me some specific cleaning assignments and I completed them, so I’m feeling better about myself. In the meantime, he managed to get things pretty much ready in the RV and we also got his motorcycle loaded into the pickup truck. We still have a fair amount to do tomorrow, and then we hope to spend the night tomorrow night in the RV so that we can pretty much head out on Monday.
Well, we had aimed for getting out of here tomorrow, but it ain’t happening. Besides the fact that we still have a lot to do to get ready, Mark can’t find the keys to the RV ignition, so he had to call a locksmith. The locksmith is down in Green Bay and won’t be able to come up until tomorrow.
Because the fall colors have been so glorious, I was carrying my camera with me to work and to church in case I should see something I had to shoot. Last Sunday, I was driving home from church with my camera on the front seat beside me. I suddenly had to step on the brake and the camera fell off the seat. The next picture I tried to take, the lens wouldn’t focus. 🙁 I have seen all sorts of things since that I would have loved to photograph and share with you, but I can’t. Therefore, I haven’t written.

This morning I was taking a shower and had just wrapped a towel around myself when Fred walked in with the phone and told me there was an important phone call for me. I took the phone and a man said, “Hello, Denise! I’m Officer Seigler from the King City Police. I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but your sister died this morning.” When I hung up, I told Fred and he burst into tears. The whole family met at the rehab center and sat with Sherill’s body until the undertaker came to take her away. We were all in shock. It has been a rough day, but I want to dedicate the rest of this post to Sherill’s memory. Continue reading
