Traveling Cowcamp

I'm up in the Pacific North West...! I was so excited to be seeing Sean & the girls again that I left at 4 dark thirty in the morning.  A few thunderstorms on the road up, but nothing that would slow down a granny on a mission.
Traveling alone doesn't bother me, but boy do the good ol boys at a diner look at you oddly when your eating breakfast by yourself at dark thirty. think it's the amazon, white haired, wild blue eyed, granny thing...

We went out to dinner last night, good company, good food...what more could one want. To do it again, of course.

One of the grands is pitching several softball games tomorrow.  Have my ever present folding chair, and sippy cup ready. Go team.

Now off to find a few bargains, a ton of books, and a domo...

Medicine Man home

He's home!!! from the stan....  His mom and crew drove down to see him and spend a few days lov'n on him.  I have to wait til he gets home home leave before I can do the same.  Doesn't matter... I'm just so happy to have him back on American soil.  aaah crap, I'm going to cry about this...

 An old Cherokee told his grandson, "My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is evil. It is jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth." The boy thought about it and asked, "Grandfather, which wolf wins?" The old man quietly replied, "The one you feed."

Medicine Man

He's coming home this spring, my grandson, a Navy corpsman deployed in Af'ganstn.  We are all pretty excited.
I've worn a dog tag with his name, and a St Chris on a chain since he left months ago.  They klink together, which makes me sound like a bell cow most of the time.  Have gotten so used to wearing it and having a good thought when I hear it klink that I'm not sure I can dispense with my talisman when he's back on American soil.

Clear and Sunny

It's a beautiful sunny day after a week of thunder boomers, cold rain, and North wind, and I'm off to enjoy it. Think it's the Leo in me or what...
