Our little "lion" climbed Mt. Atalaya in Santa Fe, NM today. Back to her Tibetan roots she kept wanting to climb straight up the mountain rather than follow the switchback trail. This girl is a 10 lb dynamo - well, 12 lbs if you count all her fur! She's been all over this country -… Continue reading Super Della Slays a Dragon
I'm a bit old-fashioned, a traditionalist, if you will. Perhaps it was the time spent with grandparents. People who made decorations, gifts, containers and such with what they had. Homemade cooking and baking. Perhaps it was reading all those books. Hardback. Paperback. Pages that crackled and sometimes smelled a bit musty as if they were… Continue reading Living Blindly Under a Rock in a Strictly Digital Age
Wow. August 30th was my last post? There's quite a bit of catching up to do then isn't there? Ok. Here are the highlights: Scotland was magical!

After nearly twenty hours of hard driving, we made it to Georgia. Late check-in: 3a.m. That eleven hours I mentioned in a previous post? It flew out the window in downtown Houston. Heavy traffic all day; we left at 6a.m., and blinding rains didn't help our driving time at all. As tired as we were after… Continue reading Driving Our Vision – Day 2 – St. Simons Island, GA
We are on the road! Today's destination: Georgia. We said goodbye to Texas. After Houston traffic and Louisiana thundershowers, we're ready for a smoother drive for the next eleven hours - eleven hours?! - sheesh! Lucy, our trusty Buick Lucerne is packed to the brim. We can't see out the back window due… Continue reading Driving Our Vision – Day 1
In three days, we leave for five months on the road.
