Heading home!

Called the transmission shop this morning and was told they expected the van to be finished and ready to drive by noon!!

Great news! We packed up the little rental car, checked out of our hotel, and drove the 20 miles to the repair shop. Can you believe there is an Enterprise rental office right across the street? Since our little rental is from Enterprise, we turned it in there, transferred our considerable baggage to the van, and hit the road.

Tonight we’re in a motel in Amarillo, and should make it home tomorrow with plenty of time to unpack, clean up and relax a bit before bed and back to work on Thursday.

Christina, her husband Johnny and my grandson Trevor all seem to have come down with colds. So far none of the others on our ski trip have reported illness. I hope it stays that way.

Give me a few days to get back in a groove, and I’ll have some ski pictures to show you.

Michelle especially should appreciate them as she’s in the middle of summer heat in South Africa. Soon. I promise.

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Getting to start for home made ours very good, indeed! Oh, and the fact that we still have cookies left over makes it even better!

I cannot believe you have cookies left over! What's wrong with all you people? If out family had done what you did, the cookies would have been gone in 24 hours!

Kenju,

Carol intentionally made dozens of extra cookies this year so there WOULD be left overs! Smart lady!

(Then -- and don't tell the other skiers -- we kinda hid one big container so we'd be SURE to have leftovers! Smart us!)

Transmission! I feel for you - I just had to have a fuel pump replaced. Cars (like women) can't live with them - can't live without them.

Ooooops ..... I swear I had nothing to do with that!
