Well, I’ve been remiss about posting here. I know how much you all hate when I don’t post, but I’m back.
Another short trip to Illinois is behind me. I went east to attend the memorial service for Uncle Harry. It was great seeing so many of the family and I got a chance to talk to them all briefly. Uncle Harry was a very popular man, he filled the church with family and friends. The service was very moving and not at all preachy. Family members talked about Uncle Harry and spoke of life with Harry. It was nice.
Nan and I did dinner the night before the memorial. We spent 3 hours together and had a great time. Even though we seldom speak, it’s like we were never apart when we see each other. We walked the Yorktown Mall after dinner at Claim Jumpers. Nice enough restaurant, but we were hoping for a quieter place.
Lunch with Joe, Steven and Dennis yesterday was an informative event. Lots of tales that I dare not post here for obvious reasons. As usual, I was a font of great ideas for both Joe and Dennis, ideas that both wisely chose to ignore.
Less than a week before we leave for London. Shirley goes to Vida to make the trip easier on Tori and Andy. She’s not happy about it but I told her it’s only for the time we’re gone. For those of you that care to contact me while I’m gone, my London # will be posted here as soon as I have it. Please take time differences in account when calling if you don’t want me calling you when you’re sleeping. You know I’ll do it.
Tori and Debra are back from Disney. Interesting trip I guess. No other comments to be made by me.
Erin leaves me today and returns to the other people. 3 Erin pics for you. The first is a cell phone pic of her and I while we fight for possession of my phone. The other 2 are of her preaching to me from our on site pulpit. We either preach to each other or sing to each other from that thing.
This morning I will be taking my Jeep in for its first service. I haven’t even had this thing for 2 weeks and I’ve pushed it past 4100 miles. Zeke’s comment when I scheduled the service was, “Already!”
I’m really enjoying this Jeep, but then I also enjoyed my last one. I took it for a back country ride the other day and outbound I had the sway bar connected while inbound I disconnected it. Much nicer ride with it disconnected. I have yet to test the lockers and I hope I never need them while off-roading. I will be in deep shit if that happens, but better to have and not need than to need and not have.
