So, how did 2013 treat you?
We are very happy, it treated us well. WE enjoyed our last trip around the USA. Including a family reunion out in the state of Utah with some wonderful folk. Grandsons and our beautiful Great granddaughter Elsie Mae. We got to meet the love of Ben’s life, Ashley. Carol, JJ’s first wife and her mom & Dad Dick & Joan.
(Always a thanks to Carol for this shot of the family)
Sidenote..Dick and Joan are RV’ers also. She just e-mailed me a few days ago they are down in Yuma for the winter. I wouldn’t mind being there.

(Henry, Rose, Howard and I (I look like I have a stove pipe on)
I had a chance to see my childhood friend Buddy and his lovely Di in New Mexico, and visit with cousins Howard and Henry in Las Vegas.
Hey we even got to share a few minutes with sweet Lucy, Joe, and the Spunky one, in Nebraska.(I’ll probably regret using that sweet word, ) Oh we saw some beautiful country, we saw more of Indiana and Ohio than we have in the past.
We spent some time with Sherry’s brother Johnny and his beautiful daughter Candy up in Ypsilanti.
We got to see our good friends Fred & Frances and George & Donna. Even had a little time with a 2nd Cousin as we delivered a package from Las Vegas to Western NC.
Its been fun here in bloggerville, I don’t think I have made anyone ‘permanently’ mad at me. Oh hey, We had a great trip with out sons, jack Jr and Mark. We all did get to have a few minutes with Paula and John down south of San Antonio. She is another joy to be around. Just like you would think from her writing.

The River Walk in San Antonio is always a joy. I was glad to show the boys the Alamo. A week before we enjoyed an afternoon in the French Quarter and sharing some bei·gnet (ben-yey; French be-nye) and STRONG coffee with our sons.
After a summer like that we still vow to enjoy our family, what money we have will be used to support our lifestyle and allow us to spend more ‘Quality Time’ with the family. I have said this before, but it is probably true this time. that is probably our last trip around the USA.
Right now I am thinking about a family cruise after we have some time to put the money aside.
We are both in our mid 70’s and still able to get around I don’t want to wait too long. Here is hoping 2014 will even exceed the wonderful times of 2013.
Thanks for stopping by the log.
PS: There comes a time that you must look at life logically. I don’t care how good the health, age will do you in, so I am trying to out fox age and do everything before he puts me in the ground or in the rocking chair.

For a few years someone(?) decided cars should look like upside down bathtubs.
