"Honey, I'm Home !"

Well, we rolled into town about 9:30pm tonight.  I walked into the house and thought "who's house is this?"  I was sort of disoriented....I guess that's what happens when you've been gone so long. 

We drove over 3,500 miles, had no real problems with the truck other than a tank of bad gas that was corrected with a bottle of that HEAT stuff poured into the gas tank and we saw no accidents along the way. 

Saturday (March 15th) was our worst weather day...we drove thru rain, snow, sleet & hail. 

Monday I'll go get my Gabi girl....I think they have rather enjoyed her harassing their cat, Madeline.  I'm sure Maddy will be glad to have Gabi gone. 

Also Monday, we'll unload the camper, and I have to drive down the street to pick up my mail that's been piling up since the 9th of February.  I talked to my neighbor this afternoon via cell phone and he said I should bring a semi-truck when I come to pick it up.

My right knee is still giving me trouble.  It's better than it was, but still not 100%...so I'll call for an appointment with my doctor to have it checked out.  I think if it's a torn meniscus, it would hurt worse than it does.

It's going to take me a few days to get back in the grove, so may start turning alerts on slowly as the week progresses.  I've missed all of you and am anxious to catch up.............Linda

Welcome home Linda!  Glad that you arrived safe and sound and in reasonable good health!  I bet Gabi will be thrilled to see you!   I have not been able to post in my journal for some days now due to a picture button that won't work, so I've been posting in my Oak Cottage journal for the time being.  There won't be any alerts from me until it is fixed!  Hope it's not too long before all is back to normal for you!
