Happy 2011 to you and yours! While we didn’t watch the ball drop, I’m sure it did. We saw the new year in with friends and family last night, a pretty mild crowd by any standard, but we had a great time. Any time there’s Mexican food included, I’m going to have a good time!
One of the wonderful things about being retired is flexibility. We had “planned” to be on the road west shortly after Christmas, but couldn’t get the bus in for front end alignment until the 28th. As it turned out, they didn’t start on it until the 30th and then found that Liberty needed major surgery. On Thursday, LeRoy and I drove to Oklahoma City for parts and then yesterday, the mechanics discovered they needed still more from the same source, which was closed for the holiday. They will order on Monday, parts should be in on Tuesday and we won’t be back “home” until later in the week. Fortunately, we have a daughter and son-in-law who don’t mind us invading their house and a granddaughter who gives up her bed for us. The benefit of all the delay is that the storms between here and Quartzsite should be over and gone by the time we’re ready to travel.
We pray that your new year will be a blessed one. Enjoy 2011!
