Homeward bound . . . . .





We are now heading west into Kansas and crossing the Missouri river for the last time on this trip.











We will see lots of beautiful scenes like this, happy cows munching in lush green pastures!!



As we turn down our last dirt road, we are getting excited again because we know what awaits us about five miles ahead!!






 A couple of months ago, our wonderful box man called to ask if we would be making a trip.  He said he was in pretty good health and could have some boxes ready for us if we wanted them . . . . . . . hmmm, let me think for one second . . . . "whatever you have John, we'll take it!!!" Yea!!!

But most of all, we were glad to hear,  after a rough patch this winter, that he was feeling good!!!

After visiting for a bit and eating delicious homemade ice cream (what diet??) we hurriedly, loaded up and totally forgot to take pictures.  You see, lucky me, I had a plane to catch in Denver and got to miss those last few days of boring driving!!

But, because we know you are anxious, we unloaded about half of what we got from John at a park across from our hotel and shot one picture for you.  His work is as beautiful as ever . . . . we love you John and Ada too!!!!


     So, that's it for this trip friends!!  Our trailer is very full and we plan to have everything in the store, the shed, the back yard, and wherever we can squeeze it by this Saturday, May 9th.  If you are looking for wonderful Mother's Day presents, guaranteed you will have to look no further!!! 

   See you then, Joe & Sharon

P.S.  We will draw on Saturday for the winner of our blog contest and notify you ASAP!! We appreciate your wonderful comments and I'm sure our friends in the Midwest do to!!!

The pics make us anxious for our drive east this summer! I`m also reminded of all the wonderful driving trips with Mom + Dad as a kid. Precious memories. Safe travels home! God speed! Kim StableyOil
