Things are starting to come together!

Helen and I had an interesting few days heading home from Glacier National Park. At first, Helen wanted to skip the Crazy Horse Monument, then later decided that we should. A slight alteration was all it took because our route home was going to take us very close anyway. IT was a very interesting site and I'm glad we stopped.

Next on the agenda was a stop to see some blog friends. Left to right it's Me, Helen, Donna, and Sam. Coco is the dark chocolate Lab on the left and Riggs is the HANDSOME Lab on the right. Sam and Donna were excellent hosts and we're waiting for us.

It was just a little tense at first, Riggs being a healthy young male and my two being females, but soon the sniffing was over and they all wanted to play. We then decided to take the three dogs to the local off-leash dog park where they could run and SWIM. Since I had a bit of trouble getting to Sam's, (GPS problems.........yes, REALLY!!), I chose to ride with Sam and Riggs and let Donna ride with Helen and our dogs.

They all had a grand time as they will say on their blog.

We should have spent more time with Sam and Donna, but I was all too anxious to get home. The plan was to continue on and drive enough so that I would have two easy days of driving. However, I drove and drove until I got to within 626 miles of home. I knew I could do that. Helen was a bit miffed, I think, and she didn't enjoy spending the night at a steep angle in a Cracker Barrel parking lot. Still, we made a very early start and got home Sunday evening instead of Monday afternoon.

My efforts to have our cable turned on didn't work out as planned and I had to call Brighthouse service and finally got the cable to the TV working. I had no luck with the computer linkage and had to wait until this morning for a technician. He solved the problem in short order and now I'm back in business.

I uncovered the pool to find that the water was crystal clear and the dogs are enjoying their normal swimming hole. There is still so much to do, to the house, to Helen's car, and the motorhome that I am a bit confused, not knowing where to start. I guess it will all sort out in a day or two.


  1. Looks like you had fun with Sam & Donna.

    I felt like we were still moving for a few days after getting home and I kept having RV dreams, but they disappeared after a few days.

  2. Thanks again for your wonderful visit, We hope all goes well and sometime in the late fall we will try and make the trip south for a few days, I know Rigg's would love it and Sam & I need to get away too.Be safe out there, Sam & Donna.
