The Trips of 2017
We started the year on a definite high
Since Heidi and family had just said good-bye.
They came to spend Christmas and stayed a few days
Before heading back to the work-a-day ways.
Liberty’s new paint job rounded out our spring
In Algodones, MX, then we were on the wing
To Golden Bell Camp, via Kansas’ short stop,
For a volunteer summer(?) but then the shoe dropped.
LeRoy’s cousin was ill, needed assistance,
So we moved to Las Cruces in spite of the distance.
It wasn’t our choice but we took it in stride.
Our plan for Wisconsin had to be cast aside.
Our rentals in Kansas were sold in September,
So we looked for a place we could land in November.
Our winter location is Yuma this year.
We miss friends in Tucson, but we’re making more here.
Rob and Shelly flew out to spend a short time.
We made “winter visitors” of them on a dime!
Now it’s time once again when our family and friends
Begin to catch up just before the year ends.
There are letters and cards and emails galore
With news of their wonderful grandkids and more!
Which leads to the reason for this little blip:
To avoid what, for me, could become a Guilt Trip!
We wish Merry Christmas to all far and near.
We’ll have more to tell by the end of next year!
LeRoy and Anne Willis
