Our Travel Blog

Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Happy New Year!

Well I think I am going to skip a separate November blog and just recap the last 2 months. It's the lazy way out, but as I sit here reflecting on them there is a lot of the same to report. Sometimes I copy and paste the Christmas letter but I didn't do one. I didn't do cards either. No particular reason, I actually really enjoyed this holiday season.

Anyway the fall has passed in a whirlwind of activities, family and friends. I created and taught my first bookkeeping class, a dear friend on the co-op Board passed away, a past co-worker of Don's lost his wife to cancer, and amongst all of that we found life in other places.

We celebrated friendships over the holiday season with lots of visits and dinners, fit in the annual Santa Claus appointment and taking the grandkids shopping for their parents gifts, and fit a few dental and medical appointments in. I had a strange thing happen to me called an eye stroke. It has affected the vision in my left eye and I now find myself going for monthly injection treatments in hope that the problem can be corrected.

Amongst all of that Tracy and Reese had birthdays! Our usual tradition on a birthday is to take  the grandkids shopping and let them go wild, then out for a meal. It gives us a chance to spend some one on one with them. This year We has already bought Reese a new equipment bag, but we still did the mall for lunch and some small shopping!

To Tracy we send the most love and happiness to her.

We hope you had a very Merry Christmas and may all the best that 2019 holds be yours!
