Prompt: Mirror, Mirror

“When I look in the mirror, I . . .” . . . can’t believe the woman I’ve become. Where have the years gone? When did those little crow’s feet form in the corners of my eyes? When did I become so shapeless? Who am I now? When […]

Stormy Weather

Apparently they get a lot of unsettling weather in North Dakota. I’m basing this premise solely on the fact that it has at least drizzled if not down-poured rain every single day since we’ve arrived with many severe thunderstorms scattered throughout. Our county is under a severe thunderstorm […]

Vegas Again

I kind of left you guys hanging on my last post many months ago, trekking through the Rocky Mountains, camper in tow, from Nebraska to Colorado. What can I say? Life gets out of hand sometimes. It’s too overwhelming to go back now & finish that trip off, […]

The Camper Mission (Part II)

After we got through the worst of the peaks and valleys in the mountains, the weather continued to suck. I had thought we’d drive out of it, but the long delay through the passes ruined any hope of that and we were in rain, freezing rain, snow, and […]

Go West! (Part X: Our New Home)

We made good time from Vegas back to Grand Junction, Colorado, only 8 hours total and we stopped for lunch again at a casino in Mesquite, which took one hour, so really only 7 hours on the road. And we only fueled up once, before we left Vegas, […]

Go West! (Part IX: Vegas Day 3)

The original plan for Saturday was to get up early and go see the Hoover Dam, but it was our last day in Vegas and we still hadn’t taken care of some business we needed to do with Jay’s ex-wife or visited with any of the people that […]

Go West! (Part IX: Vegas Night 2)

Driving through Vegas with Jay is an experience in and of itself. It seems like everything you pass he’s got something to say: “I lived there.” “I stayed there before.” “I put in all the gas main from this place to that place.” “My mom worked there as […]
