Hi y'all! I'm ready to start ketchup, so will send ommms to those who need them, sight unseen, right now, and get back to you later.

Deb, I was sorry to read of your dad's passing and I know you are probably feeling a little lost as well as sad. It was such a blessing for both of you that you could spend time with him at this stage of his life. I wish I had been able to meet him.

This is wonderful news! Go, Larry, go!!! Di, you both are inspirations to the rest of us, and I'm thrilled that you'll soon be on the road again. Ommms continue that all goes well and those wings carry the day. It will be grand to see those grands again, too, I know. Have a wonderful trip! Love you both!

Manoman, am I tired now! You remind me of my dad, too.

How's Marcia? Say howdy and wish her well and weller from us!

Looking at an intense sunset tonight in Gila Bend AZ. Rest tomorrow then on to Yuma.
Driving by there tomorrow on my way to OK City. Taking the truck, as I put the rig to bed for a winters nap, yesterday.

Praise the Lord. God is good. Ohms moving Larry's way for a long and fruitful life. Give him a hug for Mary Ann and I. Keep up that positive attitude about what the future holds. The strength and spirit both of you have shown us mutants is very inspiring. Happy Thanksgiving. Say hi to your sons' families for us.

Happy days. happy days. Let's see, 7 hour 43 minutes to Texas City so it would take you 3+ some days to get here. Oh! Nice! COME ON DOWN!

Di... you're most welcome and we're so glad Larry is feeling more like himself. And of course, it's so nice to have a "mother-in-law" site at your sons. Every mutant should be so lucky!

My BIL James flew in on Saturday and we're having a great time catching up. Been two years since we saw him in Vegas by chance. He and our friends Fran and Bob will be joining us for Thanksgiving dinner.

With that - You and Larry (And all mutants near far) Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

One more short drive tomorrow and we'll be settled in for the winter. Shared Barb's beautiful sunset here last night.

Good to hear about Larry. Hope all does well on your trip.

Happy Thanksgiving to all if I don't post again before then. We'll be seeing the DD, DSIL & GKs (& maybe the exW & her partner if they are there) via Skype on Thursday if all goes well electronically.

That is one of the saddest things I have seen lately.

Can't wait to see her unwrapped in the springtime. All the best in the Land of Enchantment this Thanksgiving!
