With sadness and anticipation we left Arkansas today. Sad to leave the family behind and eagerly anticipating seeing Gina and Rollie. We had an easy 300 mile drive through southern Arkansas, Mississippi and on down to Louisiana. And yes, Mr. Michael had to cross the big river again:
And somewhere on this journey today I realized it was 70 degrees outside and I was still wearing wool socks! That situation was quickly remedied:
Gina and Rollie prepared a wonderful dinner of ribs, potato salad and beans—guess we aren’t starting our diet yet! It was so incredibly good to see them and get all caught up! Their daughter Ashley and her husband Parker are here for a couple more days—it was good to see them again, too.
Emmi is having fun visiting with Gina and Rollie’s pooches. Zoey has a duck and will not share her duck with Emmi! Poor little Angel has surgery on her eye and is still a little under the weather.
When I got this new laptop for Christmas I loaded the new version of Live Writer and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out how to make my photos default to the same size every time I inserted a picture. Well our resident blogger computer expert Rick, sent a link from his blog with a very good video clip and now I’m in business!
It was a great day in retirement!
