Happy Valentine's Day

He is a Lope of Romance, as one would expect. Read more about his adventures at

Petrified Forest

In early August, Greg, Mark and I visited the Petrified Forest. I liked it so much that I made another stop on my drive back toward Kansas.

On both trips, we stayed at the Route 66 institution, The Wigwam Motel, in Holbrook, Arizona. I will be posting some pix of the Wigwam eventually, but I have to tell you that I agree with the slogan that you should "Sleep in a Wigwam."

I hadn't gotten around to sharing pix of the Petrified Forest, but they're just too cool to keep to myself.

I've always loved rocks.

Route 66 Trip

Last summer, Greg and Mark and I went on a two week cross country trip, doing some of Route 66, and taking in the sights along the way. While I had the best of intentions of blogging the whole trip, that didn't happen. Between the three of us, we took about 6gb of photos. So, it's not that I didn't have plenty to work with. But, the best laid plans, yadda yadda yadda.

So, I'm going to just share some of the photos here. They're in any particular order. I am obviously not going to get that done. So, there will just be photos coming.

Maybe after doing some of these I'll get around to doing the ones from Puerto Rico, a trip I took before the Rt. 66 trip.

If I don't get to it soon, it will be summer again... Ah, life... going at a faster pace than I am...

Sleepy Sunday

I went back to bed this morning at about 6:30 and slept until about 11:30. Then Greg, Mia and I went to lunch at Anchor. I came home and went back to bed and slept until about 5. I went to dinner with them and could have easily went right back to bed afterwards. But, I've been working on things I wanted to get done this weekend for the MHA. I'm going out to drop things at the post office in a few minutes and then I'm going back to bed.

The energy healer's work has obviously left me needing a lot of rest. She always warns of that, but I've never had this much of a reaction to her working on me before. But I feel so much better emotionally than I have in ages. Last year was a really hard year for me on many levels and they all took a toll on me.

I have a grant that's due on Wednesday and I'm going to take very good care of myself the next couple of days to make sure that gets to its destination on time as it's a very important one. I've got a lot of the work done it already - just have to put it in the proper format.

The moon was gorgeous tonight. I drove out to the edge of town to try and get a photo, but I didn't get anything decent. However, in hunting for a photo foreground, I did drive down to the courthouse. There were too many street lights to get a moon photo, though.
