I can't for the life of me figure out what happened to my pictures on last Wednesday's post. They wouldn't enlarge as they usually do. So, I'm running another one of Ms Mega2 and her favorite pastime. Sleeping!! Hopefully, it will work this time.
This is Grandaughter Shala and son Pat. Shala is in her junior year at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. She is out of the county for a couple months to attend a special Spanish language training session. We just got a message on Facebook that her plane landed and she is safe on the ground...in of all places... Argentina! This will be quite an experience for her. We send her our prayers and will keep her in our thoughts. Please be careful Sweetie and have fun.
I'm doing a little work on the truck getting it ready for the trip south. It's a good thing I didn't build the garage big enough for it to go inside, cause there just isn't room for it!! But it sure is good to have a nice concrete floor to crawl around on to work on stuff. For the last 15 years, my workshop has been a Campsite, with gravel or rock to work on and if I'm lucky, a picnic table as a work bench. Ah....it's the small things in life that count!!! Right?
We went on another nice ride on the Harley Softail yesterday. It was very enjoyable!! It just seems to get better and better. In just 60 miles riding in the Black Hills, we rode through 2 BIG herds of Buffalo, saw several Antelope, Turkeys, Deer and of course the "Wild" Burros that eat out of your hand. (-: We rode to Keystone and passed right in front of the Great Mt. Rushmore. WOW, what a glorious site. There is still a little traffic and lots of Motorcycles, but not as much as there has been. We will definitely do that trip again in September before we leave. The "pig tail" bridges and switchback roads of Iron Mountian Road, along with the tunnels, are something quite spectacular! One of the Tunnels is especially memorable. At the far end, as you are going through, you can see the Presidents faces at Mt. Rushmore perfectly framed by the tunnel. Beautiful!! There was enough traffic this time that I didn't feel safe stopping for pictures, so we will go back and record that!
We had our Rv'ing friends the "Hero Makers" roll in yesterday to spend a few days with us. They have been on a "Mission", meeting with Missionary Groups across the country and into Canada. Rocky and Sherri Rhoades have just gotten a "new to them" Teton 5TH wheel and also a "new to them" Volvo 770 truck. The interesting thing about his truck is that it is an EXACT duplicate of mine. They came from the same freight hauling fleet. It is identical...I mean right down to everything. (Pictures later) We got them all settled in just before we headed out on our Motorcycle ride. Meanwhile, they grabbed a much needed NAP! They have also been BUSY!!! Seems to be the story of an RV'ers life!!! We LOVE it!!
This morning it's off to Church. Rocky and Sherri will be going with us, Praise the Lord!! I know they will enjoy our Cowboy, down home style Church. Then right after Church, we have some new friends that have been reading our Blog and want to stop by and say hello.....you'll hear more about them later.
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
