So much for the Fun

Well, I guess I'll start by finishing up our trip.

We spent the next day traveling the highway touted one of the best in Utah, highway 12 through Escalante and Bryce Canyon. Well, we enjoyed the previous day's highway much better. Highway 12 was pretty but I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It was too much like home, I guess. There were the pretty pines and some stark white naked trees that looked fantastic in front of the vivid blue sky. But mile after mile of that gets boring.

We did get to Bryce Canyon while there was still snow. I never have seen Bryce Canyon but I've seen plenty of pictures and always hoped that I could see it with snow. Well, It was just as gorgeous as the pictures, even moreso. Rick and I had fun going from spot to spot, goofing around with all the signs announcing the name of the lookout along with the elevation. It was cold and there was lots of ice and snow.

We got our fill of pictures there and hit the road for Vegas. We made it just after dark, took a quick drive down the strip (sorry, I haven't been there for about 30 years) and found a room in the next town down the road, Jean, Nevada. It's a big casino/hotel/restaurant all in one. No town really, just a casino, etc. But the room was only about $35. We hit the bar, had a few drinks, made fun of the singing act and hit the hay.

The next AM we headed for the interstate and made a beeline for Lakewood. We made in there at about noon thirty. My mom, sister and 2nd cousin Edith were all there to greet us.

So much for the fun part of the trip - now the work begins.

About Me

My photo
After 2 unsuccessful marriages I spent 12 years as a divorcee, only to fall prey to another man's wiles. We had a fun 5 years together and then he decided he wanted more freedom so once again I'm single.

So I'm freshly divorced at 57 and have 5 great kids and now 7 grandkids. My kids are still a major part of my life but I'm busy helping my aging parents on Kauai.

I've lived in California, Hawaii and Oklahoma before finally settling here in Washington. I love Washington and come back to visit family, friends and take care of my garden often but will be temporarily a resident of Kauai.

I've moved 30 times in my life (no, my parents weren't in the service, at least not since I was about 2) and finally planted roots when I got my little house that I've owned since '91.

My family are Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been one since '72.
