A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away . . .

I posted a blog. Since then, I have been busy, busy, busy and have not posted another until now. This is what I've been up to. We left the Grand Canyon early (got up to see the sunrise)and were going to Amarillo that night. The only thing was, there was a nasty ass blizzard coming in that was supposed to muck up the Texas panhandle and most of Oklahoma. So we decided to drive all the way home and try to get there before the storm hit. Got in around midnight, got up around noon and sure enough,there was the crap we drove out of. Not a fun night of driving, but better than being stuck in Amarillo in a blizzard.

Went back to work, but then we went to Minnesota for a week. Hubby helped his Dad with some projects (MIL was visiting relatives). Curtis went to see his space camp alumni in Kansas for an Apollo 13 anniversary deal. So my DIL and I got to painting their new house. We did four rooms in three days and got to spend some quality time together. Then she took a day off work and we went shopping! Came home and one of my baby girls got married.

Then I went on a whirlwind three day/seven court working trip. Yup I hit seven courts in three days, including one in Boise City, which is AAALLL the way up into the panhandle of Oklahoma. Put almost a thousand miles on the van. But saw some pretty interesting stuff.

One of my courts is in Beaver, Oklahoma, in Beaver County. They're quite proud of the Beaver, among other things. The people are super nice, I have to say.

While we were staying in Elk City, right on Route 66, we saw this in our hotel parking lot.

Later that day we saw them all parked in a Route 66 museum parking lot in Clinton. I'm guessing they are taking my Route 66 dream vacation.

Then we helped Jess move, played some golf, did some landscaping in the front yard and worked some more. And one day, on the way to Woodward, we saw some awesome clouds.

Next week Jess and I are driving to southern Illinois for a Castleberry family reunion. After that, she and I and my stepmom are driving to Branson for a few days, after which Grandma will come here for a couple of nights. We'll take her back to OKC for a flight home on Friday, which will be our 27th wedding anniversary. And that, in a nutshell, is what's happening since my long ago last blog post. Thanks for still reading!
