    Big John is home!

    After a couple of days in Arizona, we're all back home. Looks like I dodged some nasty weather in the Midwest, though there was that one rain storm. Lots of wind along the way, too. Bruiser ran fine but decided to have some power steering fluid while in Arizona. Will have to look into that.

    Tomorrow is unloading and unpacking. And sleeping in my own bed!

    Thanks to all who offered me food and a bed, and tons of good conversation and giggles. It was great to meet Wayne and I almost was at Darren's long enough to greet the new little one! Jay, as always, was a hoot and I can commence learning how to play stringed instruments one string at a time! But that foot stumpfer, oooh boy, on my bucket list.

    Caught Vaughn coming and going and also Dave and Nancy Laird who put me up twice. Always a good visit. Also visited some personal friends and my brother.

    But it is good to be home. Thanks for coming along.

    Some say the land of milk and honey; others say the land of fruits and nuts. All together my sort of heaven.

    Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?

    Carol, I never get tired of reading about your adventures and goings on. You are a busy lady. Glad you made it home safe and sound.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    Welcome back. Now you just need to get Big John house trained (steering fluid reference) .

    Yeah life is good when you get out the box and meet up with others. I am still on a high from only a afternoon away. Would be nice to be able to do it on a permanent basis travelling around. North America is big enough for it.

    It was great seeing you last week. And the fact that I got to see you twice? Bonus!

    Glad your back safe. Ity's always good to be back home but then again it's fun to be on the road.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Sounds like a lot of fun and a safe, successful outcome, but, I don't see any pics so not sure it really happened.....
